Good donuts... But that's it.

Milk Run has delicious donuts... If you can get one. They have the most spotty hours of any place serving food in Steamboat. They close after they run out of donuts for the day, which makes sense, but you never know if they are going to have anything. It almost makes me not want to go at all... read more

The donuts were very good, served by friendly counter staff. The shop has a nice place to sit. Its a good place to spend time when taking a break from skiing or soaking.

We ate at another restaurant that shares the same building and could smell the donuts baking down the hall. We had to come back the next day to try them. Most of the donuts are standard offerings, but the donuts themselves are dense and delicious. It was hard to stop at one! The atmosphere is kitschy and eclectic with a... More

We were told about this place by a local. Per her suggestion, we got there early. I think we were there by 7:30 and we still had a decent selection. The place is tiny, and I don't recall if they serve coffee. It was perfect for grab and take home to everyone back at the house. These were donuts worth... More

Horrible customer service. My family and I have tried for the last month to get a donut from this place. The first three times they were sold out by 9:30 even though they are supposedly open till 12:30. Today we went at 8:30 and managed to get an average donut and an awful coffee. When asked why they don't produce... More

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.

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
