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.

I love getting time to hunker down in this place. The space has a clean & fresh feeling and the donuts are great. Even when they are out of my 1st choice, anything else I get is surprisingly addicting!
