My wife and I happened to be in the immediate area of Neil's, okay, admittedly it involved a detour, so we stopped at Neil's for a pair of Bavarian cream donuts. Neil's version is large, melt in your mouth soft and sliced into halves in order to load the interior with Bavarian cream. We also spotted a couple trays of... More

Once you navigate the busy parking lot you are in donut heaven. The long, black raspberry filled crullers are tops. Just save some for me! Everything I have had here is great, from muffins to coffee cakes to flavored coffee. Although there's a line usually, efficient staff keeps it moving fast.

They are by far the best donuts I've ever had, a little pricey but well worth a try. I brought a box to work and they were gone in minutes!

Sorry about the Homer Simpson reference but you have to try the chocolate cake glazed donuts. Simply the best out there! They have a nice crispy outside while the inside is really nice and soft. I like the other varieties too, but always go back to these. Truly an experience, especially when they just come out from the kitchen. Awesome... More

I live in Texas and traveled to Wallingford to visit my dad a few times a year. I always visited Neil's. They are the best! No matter what time of the year I visit, their donuts are consistently wonderful. Fresh and flavorful. And - HUGE! Yes, they will cost more than a store bought one or Dunkin - but one... More

These are consistently the best donuts I have found! It is a drop in, take out kind of place- tiny and always crowded on the weekend. Their cinnamon rolls are HUGE! Everything is very reasonably priced and always fresh. One thing that is somewhat strange is that they cut their donuts to fill them, instead of piping through a hole.... More

Yes the donuts are too die for, they are made fresh, taste great the only downside is the price. A box of donuts is pricey but its worth it. The donuts are filled more than Dunkin Donuts. Go for the jelly donuts

We have gone to Neil's for several years now. Some of the other places make doughnuts where there is an aftertaste or they make your burp those doughnuts for the rest of the day. Neil's doesn't do any of that. His doughnuts taste fresh and are "different" than other doughnuts made in the area! We don't go anywhere else! Thank... More
