On your way to the Safari Park...stop by here for a great treat. Need a special gift? You can order a 3 lb or 6 lb apple fritter. They also take orders for other special treats. Want a quick breakfast? This is the place.Outdoor seating is limited. There are no bathrooms. It's a walk-up.

I have traveled around the world and lived all over the country, and nothing compares to these awesome donuts. Word of advise, walk around the corner to see what is cooling on the rack for the freshest donuts ever.

Texas sized donuts are what they have here, all day, all night, everyday (except Christmas :) they've recently added cronuts to their menu, a delicious cross between a croissant and a donut. Mmmm...

Ok It was a donut and it was big. Not the best donut I have ever had but above average. Not sure it is worth the wait in line though....

Holy cow, are these donuts huge! And they've recently added cronuts to their menu (though it's currently only available Thursdays through Sundays). As Marty Deeks described it on NCIS Los Angeles, it's like France and America made slow sweet love and had a pastry baby. :)
