Roladin

Branches all over Tel Aviv, including: the Dizengof Center, Azrieli, Ibn Gvirol, Weitzman, Sarona, and Ramat HaChayal.

Heaven in a mouthful. Happiness in fluffiness. And to make it even better, you can inject more goodness right into the centre of the donut. We tried the ‘Banana Coffee Tofi’ Donut, which featured a topping of nuts and a centre of banana caramel, with a coffee tofi syringe ready to shoot more gooey goodness right into the centre. Another favourite is the Chocolate Bianco, a mixture of white and dark Belgian chocolate, again with a syringe of milk chocolate in case you thought it wasn’t sweet enough! Read more.

This Hanukkah Roladin got even more donut flavours, including mascarpone and red berries, dulce de leche, and their own special version of the cronut called The Croladin! Read more.


Shemo

Yehuda HaMaccabi Street 60

Endless deliciousness from the most unique and high-quality assortment of donuts, pastries, cakes, cookies, and more. Especially for Chanukah, their donuts are always fresh, leaving a taste that will make you want to try one more, or five! Miki Shemo, the owner, is a professional pastry chef that knows how to use quality baking ingredients, such as chocolate Velrona.

Known for its European flair, Lehamim bakery brings you simplicity but quality. You can indulge in traditional jam, either strawberry, chocolate, caramel and marzipan, with each donut fried to perfection. They also offer mini donuts ‘bites’ of delight if you will. They also offer great deals if you are buying in bigger numbers, so it is hard to say no to a big box of these identically crafted balls of heaven. Read more.

Malkhei Yisra’el St 11

The ShowRoom Bakehouse is a new bakehouse located next to Kikar Rabin styled on a hipster Williamsburg bakery. And their donuts are amazing! It’s open all-year around, and they’ve just opened a month-long pop-up in Sarona just in time for Chanukah.

Besides donuts, they do other treats like Portuguese pasteis de nata, croissants with amazing fillings, HUGE cookies, and Magnolia-style banana pudding. Read more.
