We’ve been following Destination Donuts for a decade now, ever since we first hosted owner Heather Morris during a cooking demo at Wild Goose Creative in 2013 and then when it operated as a pop-up at North Market. before becoming a permanent stand there.
In late 2021, she closed the market stall and moved Destination Donuts to its first standalone location in the heart of Clintonville, which opened there in April 2022.
The Donut Shop is located in the heart of Clintonville in a shopping area that includes Wild Cat Gift & Party and Katalina’s, Too. The store sits in the very center of the Clintonville Farmers Market footprint.
The space relies more on takeout, though there are a few tables near the front windows.
Destination Donuts specializes in two types of donuts: large donut holes called “nibblers” and giant yeast candies.
Flavors rotate daily, with approximately 6-8 different characteristics. You’ll usually find their Dueling Vanilla, Red Raspberry Hibiscus, and then other combinations of chocolate, fruit, and cinnamon rolls.
Destination Donuts also specializes in vegan donuts. Not all of their offerings are vegan, but you’ll always find a few on the daily menu. Perfect if you prefer plant-based products but still love a classic treat!
We always appreciated the offerings, usually ordering a mixed half dozen. For yeast donuts, they’re often a bit sturdier in structure than, say, the glazed yeast donuts from a store like Buckeye Donuts that melt in your mouth, but the flavors are all fun and the donuts look good .
Destination Donuts is open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
