Dough like you’ve never seen before.

By Jenna Pelletier

This isn’t your grandma’s dusty donut shop. While you can find a classic old fashioned here every so often, PVDonuts is best known for its over-the-top brioche creations adorned with everything from pieces of Pop-Tarts to waffles and bacon. Husband-and-wife owners Paul and Lori Kettelle also offer wheat-free and vegan varieties on their menu, which changes monthly and sometimes features savory flavors, too (think eggs benedict and fried chicken).


79 Ives St, Providence, RI

  • Must Have


Any of the ‘90s-themed donuts, like Dunkaroos or Cosmic Brownie. Who can resist sugar-dusted nostalgia?

  • Insider Tip

Long lines often form here on Saturday and Sunday mornings; skip them by visiting on a weekday. You can also find PVDounts at a few outposts, including Borealis Coffee in nearby East Providence (not to be confused with the East Side of Providence), on Saturdays.
