The Donut Mill is one of my all-time favorite restaurants: the donuts are absolutely heavenly! Most of the donuts include a decadent real cream filling, which makes a huge difference in quality, and the selection of flavors is phenomenal. My personal favorite is the luscious Orange Creamsicle donut, though you really can't go wrong here! Other excellent choices include the... More

Home made soup tasted like soup out of a can and sandwich was very sub par. Service could have been better. Wont be returning.

Stopped here for famous doughnuts and was not disappointed. They are a lot better than Timmy's. Next time I am in Red Deer, I will definitely stop by again.

Homemade soup with a homemade biscuit was a hearty and delicious lunch! The donuts are always amazing but lunch is definitely worth the stop as well.

we stop here almost every time we pass by. The best Doughnuts it's I have ever had. The sandwiches are great but the meat is a bit creepy(not fresh roasted it's processed). But all in all worth the stop & you must have a doughnut!

My friend and I stopped here on our way back to Calgary after having spent a pleasant few hours at the Christmas Festival of Trees in town. I had the chili special for $10 including tax. It consisted of a smallish bowl of chili (plenty for me), a perfect biscuit, a lovely Irish Cream doughnut, and a delicious cup of... More

unless you want a donut. Our experience for a soup and sandwich dinner was "AWFUL". Of the three orders we had, not one of us would order soup or a sandwich again.The meat on a $7 sandwich might have been an 1/8" thick and the large soup which brought the bill to over $12 each was a small bowl of...
