When you head to Portland, most tourists visit VooDoo Doughnuts for the best treats in town. But most of the locals we spoke to said Blue Star Donuts is the place to be! Blueberry Urban Basil is their go-to and most popular. There's also the PB and J and the Maple Bacon. YUM!
Refined headed to Blue Star to check it and a warning: donut making is dangerous.
In the heart of P-Town sits a donut oasis - a place to get your fried fix: Blue Star Donuts.
"I think our most intriguing thing is our flavors," said Stephanie Thornton, General Manager. "[We] try to keep them real interesting, off the beaten path."

Blueberry Urba Basil is their go-to donut and most popular. There's also the Matcha Latte, the PBJ, Maple Bacon (they go through 30 pounds a day between all the stores) and a ton more. They all start with a brioche dough that takes 18 hours to rise.
"We do everything by hand," said Thornton.
So next time you're in Portland - we seriously suggest you switch things up and don't just try Voodoo Donuts; try Blue Star too!
