Among Yelp's list of the top 100 donut shops in the U.S., some of Chicago's most popular spots didn't make the cut.

In previous years, Stan's Donuts and Coffee, Do-Rite Donuts and Chicken and Firecakes Donuts have been named on other cuisine lists as the best places for a sweet treat in Chicago.

But in Yelp's 2022 Top 100 Donut Shops, just four Illinois bakeries were ranked, though two are in Chicago.

Dip and Sip Donuts, located at 2256 W Roscoe in the Roscoe Village neighborhood, ranked No. 8 and offers both pre-made donuts and customized creations.

According to Yelp, Dip and Sip is known for cake donuts, such as the popular Chocolate Dreamin’, as well as gluten free options. Customers can also order donut-layered cakes with advanced notice.

Located in suburban Crystal Lake at 181 W. Virginia St., Country Donuts was named No. 25 on the list, cooking up handmade chocolate iced cake, honey dip, white long John, devil's food, powdered, old fashioned and red velvet donuts, among others flavors.

In Roseland, Old Fashioned Donuts ranked No. 83 and can be found at 11248 S Michigan Ave. The store has received 4.5 stars on Yelp, with some calling the treats the "best donuts in Chicago."

Listed at No. 87, Gurnee Donuts has been serving specialty bites to the Chicago suburbs at 4949 Grand Ave. since 1994. This shop also has 4.5 stars on Yelp with over 200 reviews.

Several other Midwestern donut shops made the list, as well. Here's where they fell:
