20 W St Lebanon, NH 03766
Located in a residential neighborhood, Muriel's Donuts has been serving donuts to the community since 1967. They regularly win awards for New Hampshire's best donut shop and if that's not a good enough reason to treat yourself, just wait till you try one. Everything is made from scratch with fresh oil, and they fry up the donuts right in front of you. They use a single dough to make plain, sugar, and cinnamon doughnuts, as well as crullers and jelly sticks. They come fresh and illustrate how good a simple donut can be making them a local treat you really have to try! They are open Monday through Saturday from 10 am-1 pm. For more information, you call (603) 448-1508.
151 Heater Rd, Lebanon, NH 03766
This restaurant and bakery makes two kinds of donuts you must try; the glazed cruller and the maple-glazed cruller. They are so large it's an event to eat, but that is all part of the fun! This is a great treat to enjoy with a friend during a lazy Saturday morning with a cup of coffee. They're open 24 hours, though, so if you're craving one of their delicious donuts at midnight, this will be your spot! For more information, you can give them a call at (603) 448-5512.
The Little Store
55 School St, Lebanon, NH 03766
The Marsh Brothers Deli here at The Little Store sells delightful and petite donuts. They have flavored dough with lemon zest for a delicious and subtle lemony flavor that pairs very well with the sweetness of the classic donut. The donuts here melt in your mouth and are the perfect after-meal treat (it also happens that they serve excellent sandwiches as well). They are open from 7 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday. For more information, you can call this number (603) 727-9329.
