Better than homemade!

Mary has been making donuts for as long as I can remember and before that. The donuts are always in perfect balance and the staff is always kind. Mary is also very, very generous to the local community. A must stop and eat.

Having seen the very high TripAdvisor rating and having the pastor at the church we are visiting rave about it, we had to try Mary's Donuts. Turns out we'd been driving by it every Sunday after church getting on the freeway and had no idea it was a food establishment. This is yet another place that I would never have... More

All Marys donuts are great, but the apple fritter is unbeatable. They are almost always still warm in the mornings. Need a treat, stop here.

Oh my goodness - should you be in the Santee area you can't miss this spot. First to note is the line outside for fresh, home made donuts. My mouth waters to think of the apple fritters! May not need the calories but an occasional indulgence is ok isn't it?! Open 24 hours so even for late night munchies it... More

I have been going into Mary's since the late 70's when we moved to Santee. Many mornings going to my boy's sports, many Bunko nites and many mornings on the way into work. ALways fresh and yummy! But the place needs some rehab badly....spend a few weeks and dollars and bring it up to date. Keep the vintageness of the... More

The line was out the door, but I got in and out pretty quickly. The donuts were yummy and my husband and I really enjoyed them.

My parents live in Santee, so I have been making regular visits for many years. Every visit includes at least one morning trip to Mary's Donuts for a selection of Donuts to treat the family. I'm into Apple Fritters, Cake Donuts, Powder Sugar Donuts, Cinnamon Sprinkled Donuts and can attest, from extensive donut tastings, that Mary's Donuts delivers the goods,... More

I was first introduced to Mary's in the 70's. A landmark in Santee with about the best donuts around. You will find lines every morning but it worth it for these yummy treats!

Best donuts around. I have lived in Santee for over 20 years and this is the best place to buy donuts around.
