Anyone can stop at a D&D, but if you're traveling thru or near Hamden, CT, google Whitney Dounuts and stop in for good old fashion doughnuts. My 85 year old Dad says 'this is how they made doughnuts when I was a kid!" Enjoy

It is such a treat to stop at Whitney Donut and get a really good doughnut. Their chocolate coconut is large and covered with coconut. The apple fritters should not be missed either.

A coworker of mine brings in muffins and doughnuts from here once in awhile and I have to say they are the best I've had. The carrot cake muffins are amazing. Definatly hoping to try a sandwhich sometime.

When I absolutely need a donut that is loaded with jelly, the only place to go for me is whitney donut. Their plain crullers are the best according to my husband! Great flavored coffees too.

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 ?
