If you are donut fan, no visit to Ottawa would be complete without trying SuzyQ donuts in Hintonburg. Offering freshly made donuts in a wide range of flavours, the light and airy donuts are based upon an old traditional Finnish recipe of “Sugar Munkki” and are considered the best donuts in town.
Starting from selling at farmer’s market SuzyQ’s bright yellow storefront offers limited seating outside but now also delivers too. No matter when you visit, some classics like maple bacon, blue vanilla fruit loop and salty caramel can always be found. While the more experimental and seasonal flavours rotate such as mango lassi, raspberry lemonade, and bumbleberry. The real challenge when visiting SuzyQ is selecting only one flavour to try, so I suggest ordering a box and splitting all the donuts with your friends so you can test a bit of everything.
No matter which donut you try it is sure to be delicious, my personal favourites include the spicy pineapple and the cinnamon toast both of which with melt in your mouth if you order them as they come out of SuzyQ’s kitchen. The not overly sweet donuts are outstanding and a wonderful addition to Ottawa’s foodie scene.
