Conveniently nestled in the middle of town, Brown’s Bakery is something of an institution in the city, known as one of the longest-running bakeries in Oklahoma City.
It’s an old-school place that plays the hits: rich, sugar-laden donuts; fresh, daily-baked bread; a huge assortment of cakes and snacks.

For the best doughnuts in town, there’s only one place to be.
Holy Rollers makes all of their produce daily, priding themselves on only using the best quality ingredients they can get their hands on.
Originally a food truck, they’ve now made their home in a chic, contemporary café/bakery in the Paseo district (treat yourself to a double bakery trip and go see the nearby The Red Cup while you’re here), but you can still find the food truck at the occasional market or festival or can even rent it out yourself.

Known for their penchant for including alcohol in their recipes, it’s a place that is all charm and flavor.
As the name might suggest, the focus is very much on the coffee here.
