I have been eating donuts from Spalding's since the 50"s. My dad would stop and pick them up for us before school. This didn't happen often so it was always a treat.

This is a bakery, not a restaurant. We get donuts there and sometimes the line is extended out the door.. They are very popular in Lexington, Ky. If you want to have some great donuts, stop in this bakery and try these. My favorites are the chocolate covered ones.

Visiting or live in Lexington? Do not miss a trip to Spauldings Donuts! These are the kind your granny used to make. They are simply wonderful! Got to get there by 10 am or Rick getting nothing! They melt in your mouth! I just cannot say enough about this place. GO!

The glazed doughnuts are unlike any other doughnuts that you may have tried. They are best when they are warm. Be prepared to wait in line but it does move fast. They are the best Lexington has to offer. Go early because they do sell out. I believe they are closed on Monday.

If you want to welcome someone to the neighborhood, school, business, state, city or town grab a box of Spalding doughnuts. they are the perfect WELCOME gift. They are a firm handshake or a hug depending on your preference.

This is a bakery that can only be described as O.M.G. Fresh, homemade donuts and pastries available each morning. I wouldn't want to count calories here. Bring cash, they don't take plastic. And come early. Yummy good. Makes me hungry just thinking about them.

Best doughnuts in lexington? My grandmother came here, my dad came here and now I bring my young ones here. It's a special treat when I get up early and come back with a box of hot, delicious spauldings.

These are the best donuts have ever had....and I typically don't care about donuts. I do not have them often because I can't stop at one.

Handcut, deep fried, glazed doughnuts that are the best on the planet. Only available very early in the morning but a warm Spaulding with coffee is a great way to start the day.
