Although the origin of donuts (and donut holes) is debated, it is easy to agree that finding shops serving this treat is not difficult. Bakeries can be found in practically every small to large-sized town in Texas. Typically considered a breakfast food, donuts, and similar display case delights, are often paired with coffee and milk. Whether you spell it “donut” or “doughnut,” be sure to try the places listed below to get your donut fix in Blanco, Canyon Lake, Dripping Springs, and Fredericksburg!
