Friday, June 1st is National Donut Day, so celebrate accordingly by picking up a donut at Bismarck's favorite donut shop, or at least according to Yelp!

Donut shops are not exactly something I frequent. However, if I were to make a point to grab a donut, especially for an occasion such as National Donut Day, I would want to go to the best-reviewed donut shop in Bismarck-Mandan, whether it be a review site or by word-of-mouth from friends in the area. Based on the times I've been to this particular establishment, as well as recommended by local friends, and according to Yelp, Bearscat Bakehouse has the best donuts in Bismarck-Mandan.

Despite the fact that I've only been there a handful of times, the Yelp reviews were very consistent with what I've experienced each time at Bearscat Bakehouse. One reviewer who goes by 'Chris F.' summed up their experience almost better than a spokesman could:

The staff are friendly, not to mention the bakery smell that floats in the air... The donuts are consistent and creative which always makes it fun each time I stop-in.  Don't forget the traditional Bearscat donut.  They're a chocolatey glazed cake donut that a perfect for dipping into a cold glass of milk.

They're not wrong about the Bearscat donut. That thing's exceptional.

Bearscat Bakehouse has two locations in Bismarck-Mandan. The Bismarck location is at 1914 North 12th Street and the Mandan location is at 111 5th Ave NE.

Happy National Donut Day, everyone!
