Not what I expected from the third best-rated restaurant in town

This is number 3 of 175 restaurants on Trip Advisor? I will say this: I really liked the feel of the place. It is the quintessential, old school donut shop, complete with the diner-style counter and tables. Prices were reasonable. If you want a coffee and donut and little else, it's fine.

They have the BEST donuts ever! I might have to go get one right now! You can call ahead and they will have your order ready in a box for you at the drive thru! Friendly and the donuts are ALWAYS FRESH! Most of the time they are even warm when you get them.

Only one word will suffice in describing this place--unique. It's not fancy by any means. But, what it lacks in ambiance it more than makes up for in great taste. I highly recommend the apple fritters--they really are the best in the world!!! Give this place a try, you'll be glad you did. If you don't want to go inside,... More

I had heard good things about the doughnuts here and stopped by one morning to pick some up for my daughter's work place. The maple bacon doughnuts took a few minutes to prepare, but according to the girl's at her clinic, they were delicious. All the doughnuts looked yummy. I went around 8:30 am and the place was pretty busy... More

We were visiting Winter Haven and were looking for a quick dessert. Luckily, we landed at the Donut Man. I had a Boston Cream and a traditional glazed donut. They were delicious and left me wanting more. My wife raved about her sour cream donut. Besides being amazing donuts, they were also a bargain! We look forward to a return... More

Their donuts are undeniably better tasting that Dunkin Donut. No fancy design on the box or may not appear appealing to dine in, but it's always full, parking can be a problem. However, you can drive thru or park in nearby gas stations.

Who says America runs on Dunkin Donuts? Not, if you live in Winter Haven, Florida. I used to think Krispy Creme made some the best donuts, but Donut Man is even better! I'm sure Dunkin Donuts is good for coffee or other items, and Krispy Creme used to do a good job with donuts for fundraisers, but if you want... More

A man in our Sunday School class picks up these doughnuts every Sunday. Love to go in and get a hot doughnut with my grandchildren. Best ones in town.
