The Best Donut Shops in Calgary (for All the Sweet Tooths Out There!)

While the land of the ultimate outdoor rodeo shows might not be the first thing that pops in your head when donuts are the topic of discussion, you might be surprised by the sweet treasures Calgary has in store. 

Unknown to most, there’s an exciting world of sugary wonders hidden in the city. Our donut shops, in particular, will make you feel like a kid winning a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s factory. But don’t worry: there’s no possibility of you turning into a blueberry here!

Now, let’s find where these sweet delights are hiding, shall we? 

1. Glamorgan Bakery 

Address: 3919 Richmond Rd SW #19, Calgary, AB T3E 4P2, Canada
Contact details: +1 403-242-2800
Operating hours:

  • Monday to Friday – 7 AM to 6 PM
  • Saturday – 7 AM to 5 PM 
  • Sunday – closed

Glamorgan Bakery is a friendly little neighborhood bakery, offering an abundance of beautifully crafted pastries. 

This family-owned establishment is extremely popular for their cheese buns, but the donuts come in a close second. They have plenty of flavors to choose from, but you can’t beat a classic glazed donut, which is our top favorite.

That said, the other flavors are still worth the try. On that note, we recommend ordering the assorted donuts with one dozen inclusions so you can try three of their top flavors: glaze, chocolate glaze, and chocolate glaze with sprinkles. 

2. Jelly Modern Doughnuts

Address: 1414 8 St SW, Calgary, AB T2R 1J6, Canada
Contact details: +1 403-453-2053
Operating hours:

  • Monday to Friday – 8 AM to 5 PM
  • Saturday & Sunday – 9 AM to 5 PM 

Jelly Modern Doughnuts’ intriguing variety of flavors is what put them on our radar. We’re especially big fans of their creme brulee, s’mores, and coconut. 

Moreover, we think maple bacon also deserves a special mention because of how unexpected it is – in the best way, of course. 

3. Holy Cow Ice Cream & Donuts

Address:  938 2 Ave NW, Calgary, AB T2N 0E6, Canada
Contact details: +1 403-719-1092

What we like most about Holy Cow is their unpredictability. We say this because they change their donut flavors every month, so you never really know what you’re going to get unless you go to their store. 

One thing’s for sure though – they’re always creative with their flavors! 

4. Beebop Doughnut Shop

Address: 2015 4 St SW #1, Calgary, AB T2S 1W6, Canada
Contact details: +1 403-497-5813
Operating hours:

  • Monday – closed
  • Tuesday to Sunday – 10 AM to 7 PM 

The bakers at Beebop Doughnut Shop are absolute artists! Each flavor is so beautifully crafted that it almost makes us feel bad when we take a big bite out of one. 

However, that feeling immediately fades as soon as we get to taste it. Because of the combination of satisfying flavors, we couldn’t help but devour every donut we get our hands on. 

The standout choice for us would be the solstice. It’s made with strawberry and whipped cream – a deadly combination anyone with an affinity for baked goods won’t be able to resist. 

5. Hoopla Donuts 

Address: 414 3 St SW, Calgary, AB T2P 1R2, Canada
Contact details: : +1 403-261-1885
Operating hours:

  • Monday, Saturday & Sunday – closed
  • Tuesday to Thursday – 7:30 AM to 3PM
  • Friday – 7:30 AM to 2 PM 

You haven’t tried the best of Calgary donuts without getting a piece from Hoopla Donuts. They have quite an interesting assortment of flavors ranging from classic options to innovative delights. 

The former includes Boston cream and our personal favorite, the earl grey. On the other hand, flavors like horchata crunch, pumpkin spiced latte, and churro totally changes the game. 

6. Pretty Sweet YYC

Address: 536 42 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 1Y6, Canada
Contact details: +1 587-356-1225
Operating hours:

  • Monday – closed
  • Tuesday to Saturday – 10 AM to 3 PM 
  • Sunday – 9 AM to 3 PM 

While their specialty is cake, Pretty Sweet’s wide variety of donut flavors are the real deal.  Additionally, they have pretty exciting flavors that would make anyone with a sweet tooth go crazy. 

That said, people with a love for sour things would also enjoy some of the goodies here. Though certainly not Warheads-candy-level in face-puckering flavor, sour watermelon and sour cherry blaster are very much worth the try. 

The ultimate standout flavor for our team, however, is the birthday cake oreo.

Anyway, no matter which flavor you pick, you can also choose from 3 different donut sizes with the biggest one measuring a bit over 3 inches in diameter. 

7. Amaido Cafe

Address:  202D Centre St S, Calgary, AB T2G 2B6, Canada
Contact details: +1 825-561-8597

Amaido Cafe’s cute mochi donuts are what sets them apart from other donut shops in Calgary. 

They change their flavors weekly, so you’re guaranteed fresh new items every time you visit. Surprisingly, they’ve managed to offer various exciting flavors each time, including houjicha, Viet coffee, and Thai tea. 

8. Ritual Doughnuts

Address: 4517 1 St SE, Calgary, AB T2G 2L2, Canada

Ritual Doughnuts went from this quaint spot in the city to an exciting gem that would have unexpected pop-ups every now and then. 

While we’re not exactly thrilled that we won’t be able to order from one of our favorite donut shops in the city, it’s quite thrilling to watch out for anytime they whip up something new. 

Their menu is different every time, so it’s something to look out for. Their most recent batch included Halloween-inspired flavors.

The one that stands out the most is the skin of a killer, Bella. We know diehard Twilight fans will agree! It’s a tasty sweet treat filled with strawberry and glazed with vanilla. 

The best part? It’s topped with enough edible glitter to put Edward Cullen to shame. 

9. Wonder Donuts

Address: 10 Discovery Ridge Hill SW Unit 902, Calgary, AB T3H 5X2, Canada
Contact details: +1 587-351-8999
Operating hours: Monday to Sunday – 6:30 AM to 5 PM 

True to its name, Wonder Donuts does indeed offer a delectable array of wonderful flavors. Only having started in March 2023, they’ve already garnered a lot of satisfied and loyal patrons – including us!

Needless to say, this stylish donut shop knows how to make its way to the top of the local dessert scene. 

We’ve tried plenty of flavors and two clear winners emerged as our favorites: the grizzly bear (grizzly bear shaped donut with your choice of filling) and fantastic éclair. 

10. Greedy Donut 

Address: 6008 Macleod Trail SW #106, Calgary, AB T2H 0K1, Canada
Contact details: +1 825-561-7974
Operating hours: Monday to Sunday – 11 AM to 8 PM 

Greedy Donut is one of the most Instagrammable donut shops on this list. Their cool shop front beckons to anyone looking for a hangout spot, but their delicious flavors are what converts people into loyal patrons. 

While they don’t have a wide variety of flavors, the ones available are irresistible enough to keep you coming back. The top recommendations from the team are the I love you so matcha, real lemon, and milk cream. 

By the way, they also have exciting offerings of beverages including coffee and non-coffee options, which all complements sweet flavors really well. 

11. Fantasy Donuts & Pretzels/Mia’s Lechon

Address: 6115 4 St SE Bay 2, Calgary, AB T2H 2H9, Canada
Contact details: +1 587-351-7775
Opening hours:

  • Monday to Wednesday & Friday – 10 AM to 5 PM 
  • Thursday – 10 AM to 4 PM
  • Saturday & Sunday – closed 

Coming out as the underdog on this list is Fantasy Donuts & Pretzels, also called Mia’s Lechon. 

You might wonder why on earth they’re offering both donuts and lechon (roasted pig) in one shop, but the moment you try out their delectable plates, you’ll understand that you shouldn’t question greatness.

Their cinnamon sugar and lemon jelly are the absolute must-tries. However, the coconut heaven is also a guaranteed slice of heaven. 

Of course, since you’re already here, you should take a bite of their lechon too. Here’s an insider tip from our Filipino friends: get yourself some Mang Tomas All Purpose Sauce from The Seafood City to elevate your lechon experience if you’re taking the food home!

12. Calgary Stampede


Though it’s not exactly a donut shop, we can’t pass up the opportunity to tell you where you can purchase the best mini donuts in the city. 

The Calgary Stampede is an annual event that attracts millions of visitors for its thrilling outdoor rodeo happenings. Anyone who has been to the event would tell you that rodeo isn’t the only star of the event. In fact, their mini donuts are what people rave about every time. 

We wouldn’t be surprised if there are people out of the millions who go there just for the donuts. After all, you only have the opportunity to try this out once every year!
