Top 17 Sufganiyot, Sfinj, & Kosher Donuts Around the World

Cafe Chocolat’s fancy, small batch cronuts

Kosher bakeries, restaurants, and cafes around the world have already started prepping their kitchens for the oncoming onslaught of fried-dough fiends hitting their shops. In Israel, eateries have been hawking sufganiyot the second Sukkot ended back in October.

For the purists out there who go out of their way to enjoy delicious fried foods during Chanukah, we wanted to compile a list of amazing kosher donuts, sufganiyot, and sfinj (Moroccan donuts) you can find around the world.

Please note that some of these places only serve these delicious fried foods around Hanukkah time, so call or message them in advance if you’re not sure. Also, these donuts can be pareve, dairy, or meat. Always ask to make sure.


There are obviously hundreds of kosher places that make amazing donuts, sufganiyot, and even sfinj around the globe. Here are some of our picks. If there are ones that we glaringly left off this list, comment below with your recommendations.
