I walked in to the shop and observed a gentleman behind the counter consolidating donuts onto one tray with his bare hands. When I ordered my donuts he began to pick my donuts up with a piece of paper but put them in the bag with his bare had when he thought he was out of sight. I was completely... More

I tried pizza from Luke's for the first time, and it was amazing. It is just like Luna's pizza although half the price. Its pizza, not gold. Very cheap to make, and they don't over charge. Highly recommend this place. I also tried the chicken wings, outstanding! My new favorite pizza place!

A weekend treat. The donuts and coffee are a local tradition. The owners are friendly and make an effort to get to know you. A great neighborhood hangout.

Luke's Donuts was an Avon institution for over 40 years. It was a great place for the local retirees to discuss world matters over great donuts and coffee. Unfortunately, the new ownership (who attempt to maintain the original Luke recipe) now turn out donuts that are way too dense and greasy, and they don't seem to understand that the old... More

I visited Luke's Donuts for the first time ever a month ago. I tried a sugar-coated donut and a chocolate glazed donut. Let me tell you... they were the ABSOLUTE WORST donuts I've ever tasted. The overall selection was subpar to begin with. The donuts tasted like they'd been sitting there at least a day or two (I got there... More
