So many doughnuts in Chicago, so little time (and calorie allotment) to eat them all. On the South Side, there’s no questioning the supremacy of Dat Donut or Old Fashioned Donuts, but on the North Side, the undisputed champion has to be The Doughnut Vault. I’ve been warming to Stan’s over the past few months, but I still think The Vault has the better Old Fashioned. I also like they just make a handful of varieties each day. There’s nobility in focusing on just the basics. Either way, the buttermilk version is Something You Should Eat™.
