  1. Come to Portland and visit Voodoo Donuts! I don’t care that Portland is several time zones removed from being a “neighboring town” to Ithaca. THAT’S NOT MY PROBLEM.

    1. Thanks for a practically useless recommendation. I feel sorry that you are stupid and useless. However, THAT’S NOT MY PROBLEM.

  2. One day if you’re feeling adventurous, drive out to Hollenbeck’s Cider Mill for hot apple cider and fresh donuts. They were delicious!

  3. I love donuts. More than I should. I just moved to Ithaca in August and have been hankering for a good one. Found this website from a reddit post and now I’ve got a whole list of places to check out.

    You could also check out Brookton’s Market up Rt 79. They don’t always have them, but I’m sure they’d make them if you called ahead.

  4. Just moved here from Philly, where the donut game was pretty solid (The Amish don’t play around with their donuts). I was worried that I’d be moving to a donut desert but this blog was a huge help in finding some great spots! Thanks!

  5. It took me about 10 years to follow the advice of many, but the East Hill P&C Donuts are a step above all other “general” donuts by the dozen.
