Which of these 32 delightfully delicious PDX doughnuts should make it to our Sweet Sixteen Round?
After a long, rainy Portland night, does anything beat a hot cup of coffee or tea and a pillowy, sugary doughnut? We don’t think so.
Whether you’re a fan of the classic cake, passionate about the passion fruit stuffed, or a freak for fritters (don’t worry, we don’t judge) — wintertime is a perfect time to savor your favorite delicious pastry.
And now is the time to show some love to your favorite doughnut-slinging shops here in Stumptown by voting it up in our Ultimate Portland Doughnut Bracket, which highlights 32 individual doughnuts throughout the Portland area.
This March Madness-style bracket was decided through votes from our readers. So use this opportunity to revisit some of your favorite Portland doughnut shops (and maybe try some new ones!).

How does a bracket work?
Here’s a quick primer on how our brackets work.
Who lands on a bracket?
The original 32 slots are based on reader nominations and staff research. There’s a nomination period before each bracket to collect recommendations on who to include. There is no fee to participate, and you can’t buy a spot in the bracket.
Keep on votin’.
Who advances in each round is strictly based on the number of votes for that round. We’ve had some tight match-ups, so every vote counts! Yes, you can vote more than once in each round.
How can I sponsor a bracket?
Our sales team works with companies who want to sponsor brackets and related events. For more information, contact Benjamin.
