“Best Donuts hands down”
Review of Guru Donuts

Guru Donuts
Ranked #2 of 12 Bakeries in Boise
Price range: US$1 - US$3
Description: We learned from our friends at the Boise Farmer's Market that you leave the flavors in the hands of the growers. From local fresh eggs, family farmed Shepherd's Grain regional flour, organically grown fruit and expertly roasted coffee, we have sourced our favorite ingredients as close to home as possible. We make all our donuts fresh, from scratch every morning. We hand craft our donuts the old fashioned way - taking extra care to make all our fillings and glazes with real ingredients. No shortcuts here. Guru Donuts was built by the support of our community. We strive to be responsible for our impact on our surroundings, and to enrich those around us. Located inside the historic Idanha on the corner of 10th & Main where we host Rediscovered Bookshop's free story time, "Tasty Tales" every Tuesday: 10am & encore' 10:30am. Starting in September, Thursdays are "Will Bike For Donuts" Day - celebrating our cycling community with 25% entire donut order. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Guru Donuts lives up to its name. They have the best original donuts I have had. The coffee was also really good. Our staff loved every bight of the 2 dozen donuts that we brought in. I will definitely be coming back. The staff was awesome too.

Donuts are my kryptonite so whenever I visit a new town I always look for the best place to get donuts and this place didn’t disappoint. I got there first thing on a Saturday and I bet this place fills up fast. There are so many delicious options but I went for the key lime, Betty boop, and the Girl Scout cookie. The Girl Scout cookie was my favorite of the three. I also tried the dirty chai which was also very good. It’s a good thing I’m not in town any longer or I would be back every day to try a new donut.
