Nice people, but at close to $10 per dozen (which sounded a little high for a non-boutique style donut shop) I expect something better than Von's bakery quality. The apple fritters had real apple, about the only good thing you could say. And the glazed buttermilk were both dry and doughy (I'm really not sure how they accomplished both). This... More

I awoke early, and I stopped for a quick bite. I had a Cherry Danish and two complementary Donut Holes, absolutely delicious. I returned later in the week with my wife. She had a Raisin Bun (the best), and I had a Glazed Donut. Everything in the case looks great, and the pastries are the best that I've ever eaten.

When we go on vacation, the diet goes out the window. And when we're in Palm Springs, that freedom starts at Swiss doughnut and their awesome pastries, doughnuts and croissants. We're always welcomed with a smile, and our bag always seems to contain a few extras, compliments of the owners. Fresh delicious treats, warm and friendly staff, and great value... More

When I am in Palm Springs I make a point of going to Swiss Donut. The donuts are fresh, tasty and reasonable. The variety makes it hard to buy only a few. The staff is great!

The donuts melt in your mouth, there's always a wait, but it is always short and you always get a donut hole with your order. How can you ask anything more from a donut shop?

Absolutely the best donuts in Palm Springs. Meet a cross section of the city: speed walkers (yes, they eat donuts), snow birds, gardeners, old guys reading the paper, and young families treating their children - those in the know get their morning pastry fix at Swiss Donuts.

I have lived in Palm Springs for 5o years and Swiss donuts are the best in town. They are made fresh daily and come in many varieties. Can't say enough about them.

Tiny shop with small donut case and serve yourself coffee. The donuts were very good but should have been zapped in a microwave to make them great. The coffee was various specialty types like Kona blend, Columbian choice, etc. A large size was generous. Small patio where you can eat outside.
