Dunkin’ has and will continue to dominate the market here in New England and beyond, for good reason. But there are several other coffee and donut shops that may not get the proper love and attention they deserve. Coffee and donut shops that are underrated and that the masses may not know about. We want to highlight those places in this post because everyone loves a good cup of coffee. And everyone LOVES a good donut.
What makes a coffee and a donut good? When first asking that question, some may say the quality. Some may say the freshness. Some may say how it’s brewed. What makes a good donut? Flavor and freshness comes to mind. Also, how big is the donut? Texture and fillings in the donut also can make or break one. Some may even say how the donut stands on day 2 may have an impact on how good it is. Either way, there are several donut shops in New England that don’t get the recognition they deserve. Donut shops that when you try their donuts, you’ll be talking about them for days.
This post is by no means trying to discredit good ole Dunkin’ either. We LOVE our Dunkin’. America Runs on Dunkin’. We just want to show some love to other donut and coffee shops who may not be top of the mind when it comes to great coffee and donuts.

Because despite our love for Dunkin’, there are other alternatives here in New England. And once you discover some of these places, you may never go back. Or you may just add them to your morning routine. Enjoy your coffee and donuts today!
