Why locals love it

Doughnuts aren't really hard to come by, but Firecakes' small batch doughnuts are something special. They have original flavors like coconut cream and tend to have seasonal fritters that are all pretty amazing. It's an easy doughnut stop in the middle of the River North neighborhood.

Why you should visit it

This popular and tiny place usually has a line up the sidewalk -- it's not just because it's about as big as my closet, but the doughnuts really are that good. If you're touring around downtown Chicago, you should stop by for a portable sweet treat.

Special tip

If you want something cold (or extra sweet), go for a doughnut ice cream sandwich: a gloriously glazed doughnut with rich, creamy ice cream.
