Fresh Deliciousness

Donut Man is a WH staple so we get it when we have out-of-towners visiting. Of course the traditional glazed are wonderful and inexpensive. Only $7 something for a baker's dozen. We love the vanilla cream, Boston cream and cronut. The inside is old but always clean. But, we almost always use the... read more

We have passed by the donut shop nearly every time we went into Winter Haven. "Dying" for a fresh donut we ventured in mid-day hankering for a tasty treat. The shelves were nearly empty of anything that was tempting our tastebuds and no counter help was in sight. While waiting we had a chance to look around and noticed the... More

Best donuts on this side of heaven!!! I'm pretty picky when it comes to donuts. I grew up in Indianapolis and our claim to fame donuts there are from Longs Bakery (google them). I grew up on Longs donuts and I must say I have NEVER had a fresher donut than from this place! Seems like a family owned establishment.... More

Local owned small donut shop that is way better then the big guys. They have a small sit in area that is normally packed with regulars. The counter takeout and drive through service is fast. If there is a wait it is worth it. We go mostly for the sour cream donuts and the apple fritters, but all of the... More

Very few places to get fresh donuts here in Winter Haven, we have the typical commercial Dunkin Donuts, just not the same though. Donut Man makes the best fresh donuts in town.

Every time we get doughnuts from "The Donut Man" we are pleased. Sometimes, we even get a "bonus" doughnut when we order a dozen.

Love their donuts. They are different then the "big box" donut place, just taste better. It is a little far from our home to run and pick them up. My husband has stopped when in the area

They are yummy for your tummy! !! I have lived in winter have 26 years and today was the first time I stepped inside!!! I tried a simple glazed, sour cream cake, and maple iced. The only negative thing I can say is that the store is too close to my house......
