The doughnuts of champions! It wouldn't be a sweet treat list without mentioning one of the city's most famous exports! We know all the other places are dead trendy, but we're the NE1 mag and we're for every business in the city and you simply can't knock a trusty jam doughnut. Greggs have an incredible 11 stores right here in the city centre, so you’re never too far away from their pillowy-soft doughnuts. Their glazed ring doughnut topped with fondant icing is simple but delicious, their pink jammie is a sight to behold, and if the sound of a hand-dipped caramel custard doughnut doesn’t get your tastebuds going, then there’s definitely something wrong! Pair it with a lovely flat white and you’re on to a winner.
