Great little donut shop. My 4yr son loves it. And they have the best coffee l've ever had. A great place to sit down and have a great conversation.

The Donut Man is my favorite stop when I'm over in Winter Haven! The inside is definitely retro, with wooden chairs replacing counter stools that disappeared years ago. I personally don't drink hot coffee, so I always order the ice coffee and it's delicious! Their donuts are always fresh and their apple fritters are out of this world! If you... More

Much better than the big national brand donuts, with the exception of Krispy Kreme! If you want the best donuts in Winter Haven, you have to visit The Donut Man!!!!

Hands-down, the best donuts in town. I know they aren't good for me, but I can't eat just one, they are so good. I never eat-in, I just take my donuts to go.

We all picked different donuts and all were fresh and delicious. My fritter was the best I've had. Very small place inside. This is a local hangout so don't plan to come in and sit as there probably won't be enough seats. Coffee was weak so maybe pass on that. Friendly locals to chat with though. Don't let the old,...

Best damn donut you could every dream of putting in your mouth. Just don't go in. Go through the drive through, get a dozen and enjoy. Just don't go in.

To look at The Donut Man shop in Winter Haven you would not think things so wonderful could come from there. Morning Breakfast sandwiches are the best anywhere. Donuts are fresh many times a day. For a special treat stop by around 7pm for hot glazed donuts. Bet you can't eat just 1.They are a busy place and everyone is... More

We stop at least every few weeks for our Apple fritter fix. You'll have difficulty finding a parking spot before noon but the place clears out once the seniors finish solving all of the world's problems...until the next morning, that is. We like to ask "what's hot?" and nibble on the way home. Cinnamon glazed....mmm, but can't walk away without... More

I heard so many good things about the Donut Man I just had to have a go at them and I was very disappointed. The first time the donuts were dry, hard and had very little taste, so thinking I had perhaps got a bad batch, I went back about a week later and it was the same thing all... More

These donuts and fritters are EXCELLENT! The Boston Creme donuts have fresh cream, the jelly donuts have fresh jelly. All of the donuts tasted fresh and didn't get stale after one day. The maple nut has to be my favorite donut. The apple fritters are so good I could eat a dozen by myself. The staff and locals are terrific.... More
