In recent years, the Boston area has become a gourmet doughnut paradise. Union Square Donuts changed the game when its ample, often bacon-topped fried wonders came on the scene in 2013, and The Gallows played around with the confections before opening Blackbird Doughnuts earlier this year. But these treats, while worth every penny, are $3 and up. The Hub has long been a doughnut-friendly city (you could almost say we run on them); here are a baker's dozen options under $2.50, in honor of Cheap Eats Week.
Note: The points on the map are roughly north to south, not ranked.
