With the fandom of free donuts, specialty stores and the innate ability to revert everyone to their six-year-old self when the treats are in presence, you could say there’s something special about the hole-y dessert.
If you need to satisfy your donut cravings, or if you’re in need for some gourmet donuts for an event, I’ve saved you the trouble and have sourced out THE BEST donut-ters in Geelong, supplying donuts for every occasion… even if that’s just sitting on the couch. Enjoy!
Saint Dough Co
Geelong’s very own sourdough doughnuts, made entirely by hand!! So far, the stockists are only Warralily Cockatoo, and Ocean Grind in Torquay, BUT SDC can be ordered online, AND they have been doing doughnut deliveries around selected areas

As you’ve most likely come to know, Uncle Donut is arguably the home for donuts in Geelong, and part of the excitement around the venue is with the change of flavours each month… and they are all amazing! They’ve done everything from tiramisu, Crème Brûlée, and peppermint crisp, to Jaffa, sticky date, and passionfruit pavlova. Plus, they do dessert boxes, need I say more?
