Top 10 List: Best Donuts on Vancouver Island

It’s Top 10 Tuesday and we’ve got a “treat” for you this week!  We’ve listed the best places to get a donut (or do you spell it doughnut?!) around the island!

I have some pretty “sweet” childhood memories spinning in brown chairs and snacking on the famous-when-I-younger walnut crunches and Robin’s Eggs donuts when my Dad and I would visit at Robin’s Donuts at the old Harewood Mall in Nanaimo.
