Love the apple fritters and apple cider munchkins. I hate fast food. I have a all child who always falls asleep in the car. When I'm starving and he's asleep I need a drive thru. This place fits the bill. I can order delicious salads with chicken, sandwiches that are freshly made, coffee, bakery... read more

Whitney Donut Hamden Ct Whitney Donut is a wonderful place to stop for a morning cup of coffee and your choice of any donut, croissant, bagel or muffin you can imagine. It’s common to see the locals there discussing politics, sports or any other town news. But it’s much more than that. For those who know they also offer a... More

Whitney Donut and Sandwich Shop is one of my favorite lunch spots. I especially like the chef salad, the chicken parmesan sandwich, macaroni and cheese, egg salad sandwiches, and more. The chicken orzo soup is also very good. Waiters and waitresses are helpful and friendly. Sometimes I eat there, and sometimes I place an order to go. The only thing... More

Great spot we learned of when our daughter went to Quinnipiac for college. Every time we visit the area we make a stop. Really good donuts and very fresh, unlike the places like Dunks and other that serve donuts. No caparison. The breakfast sandwiches are fantastic, regardless of which one you get. Pricing is in-line for any budget...

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.

I've been going here since I started working in town about 8yrs ago. This restaurant was recommended by a co-worker and I am so glad I gave it a try. I don't get to go here as often as I would like. I recommend any of their homemade donuts, coffee, sandwiches, and great daily specials. It can get a little... More
