Monroe’s Donuts & Bakery

Home / Cuisine / Best Local Doughnuts / Monroe’s Donuts & Bakery


Everyone loves the coworker who brings a box of doughnuts to share with the rest of the staff, but where is the best place for the rings of sugary joy? Monroe Donuts and Bakery is a popular and delicious option.

For more than 20 years, the family-owned shop has been serving fresh doughnuts made from scratch every day. The business started when owner Monroe Jackson began selling doughnuts and pastries from the den in his home on Medgar Evers Boulevard. In 2003, a hurricane destroyed his family’s home, which prompted Jackson to open Monroe’s Donuts in a storefront.

Monroe’s offers a variety of sweets from classic glazed doughnuts to cinnamon rolls and apple fritters. While his store has received a lot of positive reception, Jackson continues to tweak his recipes. “We are always working on improving on our recipe,” Jackson says. “The best is yet to come.” — Tunga Otis
