Some say doughnuts have had their run. We say: never — especially not in a city like Chicago. While the cupcake trend has come and gone, breakfast-pastry lovers have united in a mission to keep their ooey-gooey doughnut treats prevalent. And with shops like Doughnut Vault continuing to see lines out the door, the days of enjoying a deep-fried, hand-crafted delight with your hand-roasted, pour-over cup of Joe are far from over.

Did we mention that it's National Doughnut Day? So it's basically your civic obligation to indulge in a well-deserved treat. While you could always snap up a freebie at one of the big chains, with such a lengthy list of must-try destinations, we recommend checking out a hometown favorite — and we categorized the top 10 spots by neighborhood to make it that much easier. Now, go forth and sample!
