Craving a sweet treat but don’t know where to look? All Things Madison has you covered!
When you’re searching for a quick bite for brunch or heading out for a family snack, donuts are always a good way to go. They’re fast, delicious, and one of my personal favorite cravings.
Five Places to Get Donuts in Madison, Alabama
Finding new donut shops to check out can be tough, but luckily the Madison area has plenty to choose from! Below are five donut shops to try the next time you need to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Daylight Donuts is a classic yet underrated chain that we thankfully have here in Madison. Though they specialize in donuts, they also sell breakfast and brunch if you’re looking for something heartier to go with your treat. The sausage rolls are a must-have, and so are the cake donuts.
This tried-and-true donut shop is one of only a few in Alabama.
Where? 3810 Sullivan St (Arlington Place Shopping Center)
When? Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Locally owned and baking fresh goods daily, the lovely folks at WOW Donuts specialize in customized orders. One can order a whole baker’s dozen of individually frosted, colorfully creative donuts.
Whether it’s for a graduation, a birthday, or even a football game, WOW Donuts adds a heartfelt touch to any occasion. Knowing that you are supporting a small business is always a plus as well.
Where? 11156 County Line Road, Suite H
When? Tuesday through Friday from 5 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m.
This small establishment offers classic donuts, donut holes, and cake, made fresh by a dedicated staff. Donut Palace is also one of the only bakeries in Madison that deliver through Grubhub, which means it’s a great choice for families staying in or taking extra precautions due to COVID.
The cinnamon sugar donut is a fan favorite, and the shop is tiny but mighty!

Bigfoot’s Little Donuts
With two locations in Madison and Huntsville, Bigfoot’s Little Donuts has a pretty firm presence in the area, so there’s no reason not to try their delicious specials! They create one-of-a-kind flavors like wedding cake, maple bacon, and caramel cookie crumble that simply can’t be passed up.
It’s a family-operated business that opened in 2014, and their bite-sized, glazed mini-donuts are certainly a unique experience.
Where? 12181 County Line Road
When? Tuesday through Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Need I say more? Chances are, you’re already familiar with this massively popular chain restaurant, but in case you aren’t, you need to be. With countless choices, excellent coffee, and great service, there’s a reason Dunkin’ has thrived in Madison.
Whether you’re grabbing breakfast or getting a treat while running errands, Dunkin’ gets an A+ for cost and convenience.
