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.

I have been going to this donut shop since the 70's. I've noticed three things, the employees are very friendly but the service at busy times has gooten much slower and the prices have risen much more than inflation would account for.

As an East County resident for the majority of my life, I have patronized Mary's Donuts for a long time. The unassuming shop located in Santee on Mission Gorge (adjacent to the end of 125N), in an old house building, alongside the equally old gas station, may startle the novice. But if you want the best, this is it. You... More

Love their donuts, especially their blueberry burritos. Always stop here on way home from a movie for a snack to take home.

All of them are tasty some are giant, like the fritters. Santee. Land mark. You can't miss here. It's quaint, but a huge selection of wonderful things (A LITTLE HARD ON YOUR DIET, BUT WORTH IT!!!)
