Providence is not lacking doughnut shops, but until recently, most were the fast food chain variety. PVDonuts arrived, and Knead Doughnuts (pictured above) opened in downtown Providence last month.
I will remain loyal to Allie’s Donuts, but 20 miles is a long way to drive for a doughnut. Knead Donuts also offers a variation on the theme. The raised doughnuts have a brioche-like texture with a crunchy shell, and the cake doughnuts are densely packed with flavor—sour cream and vanilla. Perhaps, the most surprising aspect is the beautiful space.

The donuts were quite tasty with very innovative flavors but 22 bucks for 5 donuts and a coffee is pretty high in my book.
