Best of CU: Best doughnut

By Isabelle Bertolini , Contributing Writer

It comes as no surprise that Pandamonium Doughnuts took the cake for best doughnuts. In fact, the doughnut bakery has held the title since 2017.

Pandemonium is a from-scratch bakery that’s committed to using fresh, high-quality ingredients that are organic and local. The shop has flavors ranging from pumpkin spice to cereal killer to blueberry lemon and more. The shop also has coffee, drinks and other merchandise. It makes seasonal flavors using pure extracts and no preservatives. Doughnuts are fresh every day, and each one is individually crafted with no premade or artificial ingredients. Pandamonium Doughnuts upholds it mission of having, “Real people, Real Ingredients, Real Doughnuts.”

The Pandamonium Doughnuts truck can be found on the corner of Goodwin and Oregon streets, between the Krannert Center for Performing Arts and Espresso Royale. It opens at 8 a.m. and stays open until all donuts are sold out – rain or shine.

Recently, the store launched a preorder feature on their website where customers can place online orders for pick up. There is a minimum order of four doughnuts for pickup. The shop is located at 1105 Windsor Road in Champaign by the Sun Singer restaurant and opens at 7:30 a.m. on weekdays and 8:00 a.m. on weekends. The store is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. 

Make sure to arrive early to guarantee you get the doughnut of your choice!
