We’re celebrating Hanukkah here in Tel Aviv with amazing donuts… or sufganiyot in Hebrew. You can find AMAZING donuts all across Tel Aviv at this time of the year, but to be sure we have the most reliable information on the best ones, we asked the community for their opinion, and we are happy to say we’ve found the winners!

THE ISRAELI – Roladin 🇮🇱

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

Roladin have gone for gold this year… and their luxurious donuts have returned to the top of our Secret Tel Aviv Best Donut in Tel Aviv poll 2021!  It looks like they’ve been inspired by baroque design, smothering the donut canvas in golds and intricate patterns, and then adding layers of delicious toppings (but pleases stop using those horrible plastic filling squeezers)!  Read more.
