had high hopes - I've not had a good donut in years. Since Dunkin came on the seen all the donut shops went the way of the dinosaur. In Danbury we had this shop that make the most perfect donuts had hope to fine the same here. Nope- to heavy to greasy maybe I picked the wrong ones ?

If you want fresh and delicious donuts then you absolutely must stop by Whitney Donut and Sandwich Shop. A dozen donuts at Whitney does cost a few dollars more than Dunkin Donuts, but they are so much better and worth paying a bit more for. My kids are addicted. They ask for donuts every time we go to Hamden. I... More

Not sure why people go to dunkins when you have this place. It's awesome. Great donuts, pastry, bagels. Apple cider donuts are legit.

Donuts, pastry, muffins, sandwiches, soups, everything is top of the line. Faves? Apple Cider, Toasted Coconut and Black Raspberry jelly filled donuts and of course the Apple Fritters. Sandwich specials everyday. Great soup, especially the hearty bisque and chowders in the winter.

Whitney Donut & Sandwich Shop Yes, that's right. I recently, no I needed to have one of their GREAT apple fritters and it was 1:30, lunch time.

This place is great. Love the doughnuts, always find a reason to get a chocolate coconut one. Lines can be long and the staff can sometimes look lost. 8 out of 10 times I love the whole experience there.... recommend you try it on a Saturday morning.
