At NOLA Doughnuts, doughnuts are our passion. We simply create the best doughnuts in Portland every day. Our dough is made fresh from only the finest ingredients and includes a layering technique commonly used in the production of croissants. This technique involves a three-day process that creates a complexity of flavor, a deep richness, and a crisp outer texture. Enjoying a NOLA doughnut is an experience to be savored.
Our dough is handcrafted over a three-day process using a layering technique commonly found in French pastry making. The result is our signature La’ssant Doughnuts with a great complexity of flavor, a deep richness, and a crisp outer texture.
All of our doughnuts are made with the La’ssant dough except our authentic New Orleans style beignets that are made-to-order. Our doughnuts are available for online ordering but beignets are only available in-store.
