Want a Doghnut? Get it here!

This Bakery has the doughnut you've always wanted. Whenever I say that, I get the "yeah yeah right" looks. but then someone has a bite and loves the doughnut. Can't go wrong.

People in Lexington talk about Spaldings as if it was something religious, but I just don't get it. They are good, but nothing special and there are better choices in the city.

Always fresh and hot. I stop and get a dozen every time I have the chance. There is usually a line out the door, but they have super fast service and great customer service. Get there early because they close when they sell out.

This is a family owned and operated donut shop. It has been around lexington for years. Probably the best donuts I've ever rasted. Get there early, as there is usually a line out the door, especially on Saturday.

The doughnuts are wonderful, I especially like the glazed ones. This place is an institution around here and you cannot go wrong by checking it out. My last visit I tried little cheesecakes (muffin size), raspberry and turtle. Both were delicious as well. Check the hours.

Spaulding's is a long time favorite Family owned Lexington Bakery. When you want a great tasty yeast donuts, this is where to go. The donuts are hand made with slightly oblong shapes. Every scrap is used, no donut holes to tempt your taste buds. Families and business pre-order dozens of donuts that are not part of the usual donuts for... More

Spalding Donuts are a Lexington institution. Limited hours (they close when the donuts are gone!) are offset by sweet doughy treats and service with a smile. Whenever we have out of town guests, we make sure they have the chance to experience breakffast food nirvana at Spalding's ... and they are never disappointed! Nothing fancy and limited options but what... More
