Twin donut in Allston. Unless you prefer bacon and eggs stuck in the middle of your glazed donut, in which case you'd better go on over to the nearest Dunkin's and try chef Frankenthaler's newest creation.

Anna's Hand Cut Donuts in West Roxbury. The chocolate butternut (chocolate doughnut with chocolate crumb coating) is amazing. Jelly sticks and jelly doughnuts are outstanding, and normally I don't even like jelly-filled.
