Craving for some classic sugar-glazed doughnuts? Or perhaps the ones with sweet fillings on the inside, namely strawberry jam or dark chocolate? Well, instead of focusing on the more well-known establishments such as Dunkin’ and Big Apple Donuts & Coffee, let’s dig into our pick of 7 Yummy-licious Doughnut Places In Klang Valley.
Kopi Lain Hati, which made its Malaysian debut this year, turns out to be one of the fastest-growing coffee chains in Indonesia. They are renowned for their in-house preservatives-free coffee using only quality beans. Other than coffee and non-coffee varieties, their menu also consists of light bites such as sandwiches and doughnuts. The latter comes in a set of four served on an Insta-worthy wooden tray. They offer different flavours like Buttercream Cheese, Cookies & Cream and Nutella. The fillings dominate the top of their doughnuts, which can be messy upon holding them. Even so, I do enjoy their little bite-sized shapes and they sure complement well with a cup of hot/cold beverage.

2) Sugar and I
Ever heard of bombolonis? They are basically Italian doughnuts minus the holes in the middle and contain typically sweet fillings on the inside. Subang Jaya-based Sugar and I are particularly famous for them, where they use only quality ingredients. And that means everything from the flour to fillings and even its icing sugar, dusted around the surface of the bombolonis. Most customers who bought them love the bomboloni’s light and fluffy bite. The filling taste delicious too. When comes to choices, Sugar and I offer various flavours like Strawberry Jam, Lotus Biscoff and Nutella.

5) Orito KL

Their doughnuts are no slouch either and many customers agreed too. Light and airy on the outside and their fillings are equally delicious.

Prices are rather on the high side, especially given their use of quality ingredients and the fact that each baked good is handcrafted.
