Really any mention of other doughnut places only exposes your lack of understanding when it comes to these types of doughnut's. The cake doughnuts are good, but Stan's is about the raised... read more

So far we've done two dozen of these delicious little donuts. The only two disappointments were the desiccated coconut topping, just a personal thing and we didn't see two fat cops eating donuts and drinking coffee at the counter, that would have made the North American experience complete. But really good donuts

Stan's donuts is something of a local institution. Folks in the area all know about this place and come here. Even though I've moved more than ten miles away, many times on the weekend we go here specifically to get the fresh, sweet, still-warm donuts that Stan's has been serving for years. Or, even better, friends drop by on the... More

The best donuts in town! They are so fresh they literally melt in your mouth! The only downside is they only take cash.

I often stop by to get donuts for business meetings. It is not the closest place to me, but it is by far the best. Many time the donuts are still warm. This is simply the best place to get your donuts.

Better come early. There's usually a line. The plain glazed or sugared donuts are the best and softest ever. Great with coffee. No frills donut place and that's just fine with me. Closes early too.

I've lived near Stan's since 1973. While I can't eat doughnuts as often any more (health issues, sugar, etc.) when I want a doughnut, I always go to Stan's Still the best by every test.

Donuts that contain all the expected flavor. These are worth the waiting in line. Go early for best selection.
