Great Donuts!

We got a dozen donuts and ate them in two days between three people. They are a perfect balance of freshness and flavour. Favourite by far was their peanut butter drizzled yeast donut.

lol! nice little doughnut shop and cute eating area. nice counter girl but we got there before 10 a.m. to find maybe 1 1/2 dzn doughnuts at most to choose from? place says closes at noon but sometimes closes a little earlier due to lack of product so we figured certainly they aren't out of doughnuts before 10 a.m. but...

9:30am arrival on a Sat. may have been our demise, but the place smelled like a wet, dirty rag so my first impression was yuck...then I looked at the selection of donuts. It was Valentine's Day so I thought there would be some fun holiday doughnuts - none to be seen , and the selection was terrible for a specialty... More

Honestly, these donuts are better than City Market and Safeway, but not by so much that I'm willing to drop $1.50 for one if I can get out to one of the markets. Others (friends with money) swear by this place. It's a matter of choice rather than taste, I think. Also beware the long lines in the AM. You... More

a tad expensive, but likely because they may use more "real" ingredients rather than just a mix. Slightly more generous portions than the average chains, and definitely more tasty. An easy morning pick up to go on the way to the slopes.

I understand that the morning is not the easiest time to be friendly. I also understand that it is difficult to be friendly to a dad and his five young boys at 7am. I understand all of those things, but this is a donut store and I would assume that most of your business is in the morning. Good morning!... More

I'm not sure if it's even fair for me to rate the donuts. I don't know what Colorado Donuts are meant to taste like. We were not impressed. The donuts are much more "bready/dry" than the donuts we have in Texas. They had some fun flavors that we wouldn't find at home, however, the donuts were not a hit with... More

After staying away from Milk Run for several months we decided to meet for coffee today with a group of friends. Arrived at 11:30 am, which is approx. 2 hours before closing time. Guess what? We were greeted with 2 signs in the window-1 saying CLOSED and the 2nd saying SOLD OUT. This place is the most inconsistent restaurant in... More

Having moved to the Midwest from the West Coast, I always jump at the opportunity to eat a maple donut. Milk Run's are delicious. The donuts are tasty, albeit a little pricey.
