Great Donuts! Basic Pleasure!

There is nothing unique about this donut shop other than the fact that they make some darn good donuts. It is simple, basic, and unimpressive which means a positive sign for donuts. You should come here for the donuts not the atmosphere. I make a trip here at least once when I'm in town. The... read more

Great donuts and a short walk from our hotel. Each morning, we would get up and get our morning started with several donuts - not to be recommended on a daily basis, but great when your on vacation

Yes, this is the best breakfast spot around! The donuts are so fresh they taste like they just came out of the oven, and they probably did just come out of the oven! They also serve coffee, a wide variety of juices, and various breakfast sándwiches. Amazingly they open at 5 am every day, earlier in the summer!

Located in a strip mall on a major street (Sunrise) in Palm Springs, this shop is easy to get to. There is a great variety of donuts from cake style to fritters and croissants. They are well-stocked every time we have gone there. The staff is very friendly and patient even though it is usually busy. There is a small... More

Echo previous reviewer comments - donuts are huge, staff is awesome and you can't beat the value. I'm not a fan of donuts but someone convinced me to try a Swiss donut and they're a must have each day we're in the Palm Springs area.

Great friendly welcoming service, as big as the donuts themselves, and the smell of fresh baked enticingly wafting through. Located in the strip mall by Ralph's. Easy to spot it is the one occupied and filled with a number of personal sized delicious mom and pop eateries. Strip malling of America with ahigh count of to absolute total vacancies are... More

When I live on the East Coast, if you wanted a doughnut you went to Dunkin Doughnuts, Winchells, or Krispy Kreme. Even though they are all good, forget about them in the Palm Springs area. If you want a doughnut, a fritter, or a speciality role, Swiss Doughnut is the best place to go. Obviously made fresh every morning, what... More

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
