Ahhhh North Lime Coffee and Donuts. If I could go here every weekend I would! I'm a big fan of the monkey bread donut, because my mom made them as a kid. The blueberry cheesecake donut is also a good favorite. I always get gooey blueberry goodness everywhere, but I don't care, because they're sooo good! The place is a... More

Very unique donut shop! I am glad we did some research, as North Lime Coffee and Donuts is off the beaten path. Funky location, very artsy neighborhood. Funky flavors, as well as the classics. Good coffee. Great way to start the day!

We stumbled upon this donut shop and were greatly surprised at our good fortune. These are some of the best donuts I've ever had and will make a point to stop by any time I'm in Lexington. The glazed donuts are square rather than round but that gives them a little bit better crispness at the edges where the flavor... More

Went to Madness distribution and treated ourself to North Lime after getting up early.. OMG.. so so good. Had chocolate glazed, funnel cake, glazed and Key Lime.... will have to say the chocolate glazed was so wonderful. My husband had the Key Lime and felt it was dead on Key Lime. The coffee was delicious = YUM... keep it up.

Be prepared to wait in line on a weekend morning - this place is popular! Their square donuts are delightful, the coffee is great, and the space is pleasant inside and out. They always have a donut of the day, so there's usually something new to try.

I've been here several times and the donuts always taste very fresh and delicious. They have regular donuts such as the funnel cake, chocolate glazed, plain glazed, cinnamon sugar, and cinna-monkey, and then they have a special donut of the day that changes daily and is posted on Facebook. They've had some really creative ones in the past, such as... More

The coffee and donuts at this cute shop were great. The donuts have a sweet funnel cake taste. They had seating inside and out. The up-and-coming old Lime ( noli ) neighborhood is a cool place to visit. Don't miss the artist in residence right next door to the shop, Homegrown Press

Probably the best donut I've ever had. The coffee was good but nothing spectacular. But the donut. Oh, the donut. A must-try
