Fracture Prune’s original store is in Ocean City, Maryland. That’s why, on National Doughnut Day, all 17 Prune shops from Delaware to Ohio to Virginia are giving away a free cinnamon-sugar glazed Ocean City Sand doughnut to every customer.
Locations in Frederick, Rockville, Dulles, and Leesburg. Click here to find a store.
Want to celebrate with even more doughnuts? We love the goods at 2 Amys, the Cleveland Park pizzeria that hawks Italian-style cinnamon doughnuts on weekends. The soft fritters, dipped in canola oil, are rich with egg and lightly scented with orange. They’re the Armani of doughnuts—simple and perfect, without any unnecessary frills. For $1.50, you get one doughnut and its punched-out hole, and it’s hard not to want more. Once the tray is empty, the doughnuts are gone until the next weekend.
Runner-up: Tabard Inn. Chef Paul Pelt might be turning out innovative dishes at night, but the most talked-about item at this cozy Dupont Circle restaurant is still the weekend-brunch doughnuts by pastry chef Huw Griffiths. At $1.50 each, the cinnamon-sugar-sprinkled circles are light and pillowy with a slight sourdough tang. The plate comes with just-whipped cream, but these little guys are fine on their own.
