Where to Celebrate National Donut Day in Dallas
June 6, 2019
BY LARA WASSERMAN
One of the most important holidays is upon us: National Doughnut Day! Whether you spell it “doughnut,” “do-nut,” or “donut,” we can all agree that they’re delicious! This amazing holiday always takes place the first Friday of June. While we certainly don’t need an excuse to eat donuts, we definitely like to know where we can find specials or celebrate with fellow donut-lovers!
Tomorrow, Jaram’s will be giving away five boxes of their “Happy Donut Day” boxes randomly! They will also be giving away small freebies. The minimum purchase to be eligible is $10.00. Freebies and giveaway prizes will be available until they’re gone! They have two locations: one in North Dallas, and one in Lakewood. Pro tip: They have THE BEST cronuts!
Otto’s Coffee & Fine Foods
Located in the Adolphus Hotel, Otto’s is best known for their liege waffles. However, they will be celebrating National Doughnut Day by giving away a free donut with every purchase while supplies last! You can choose one of three flavors: dark chocolate, lemon ricotta, and of course, classic glazed.

Shipley agrees that there is no better holiday than National Doughnut Day. Located all over DFW (though sadly, not in Central Dallas), Shipley Do-Nuts might have the winning deal for National Doughnut Day: stop in and get a free glazed donut, no purchase necessary! Tell your friends and family, because this is a deal that nobody wants to miss out on!
If you want to support a small, local donut shop, head to Uptown and visit Urban Donut! They have tons of cute and delicious specialty donuts to choose from. Don’t like their options? They also have a design-your-own-donut bar! Come make your own special donut, and leave with a free glazed donut in honor of National Doughnut Day!

WOW! Donuts AND Drips
WOW! Donuts and drips
This super Instagrammable spot up in Richardson is inviting you in to enjoy select donuts for only $1.00! If you haven’t visited yet, it’s the perfect opportunity because WOW really does wow you when you walk in! If their decor doesn’t wow you, then their beautiful and creative donuts will!

BEST OF THE REST:
These might not be locally-owned Donut Shops, but they are still offering Deals!
If you want a yeast donut the size of your face, look no farther than Top Pot! While they aren’t giving out free treats tomorrow, they will be holding a raffle! If you come in to celebrate National Doughnut Day with them, you’ll be entered into their drawing to win a dozen donuts and a coffee-to-go every month for a year! You can find them in University Park and on Lower Greenville.
We were a bit surprised to see the stacked schedule of events that the Omni will have for us tomorrow. They will be celebrating National Doughnut Day from 6:30 AM until 10:00 PM! Most of the events will take place before 9:30 AM, so the early bird definitely gets the worm here. If you’re not an early riser, they’ll be serving their hangover donut burger from 11:00 AM until 10:00 PM!
There’s always that one guy that just wants to be different. Of course, in this case, it’s Hurts! They make amazingly tasty and creative donuts that are so rich, they know you’ll only want one! So, instead of giving away free donuts, they’re giving away free hugs! Stop into their shop (DFW locations include Frisco and Fort Worth) for a delicious donut and a hug.
Let’s be real: could we even celebrate National Doughnut Day if Dunkin’ weren’t on board? Probably not. Make sure you stop into Dunkin’ tomorrow, because they are giving away a free donut with every beverage purchase! Get there early, because they’re only available while supplies last.
Krispy Kreme has a HUGE goal for tomorrow: they want to try to give away 1 million free doughnuts! There is no purchase necessary, so find your closest Krispy Kreme, receive a free glazed doughnut, and help them achieve this massive goal!
