Best Doughnuts in Lexington

All I can say is WOW! This bakery has the very best Doughnuts of anywhere I have tried and I have tried many. Their chocolate covered Doughnuts are great!! I have never seen a line so long for Doughnuts.

There are no donuts like Spalding donuts anywhere on the planet that I have ever found. These are hands down the best ever - flavor and texture are perfect. Be aware that you need to arrive early to get them because when they run out, they close for the day, but these donuts are worth it!!

We were fortunate to live in Lexington for a number of years and this was one of the first places the locals told me I HAD to try if I liked donuts. Needless to say, didn't buy them anywhere else after one try. The original donuts or original with chocolate are amazing, as are their other confections. You can't go... More

I couldn't even eat past the first bite. The grease literally dripped out of the donut. The other thing that was quite irritating was the fact that they took cash only...in this day and age....not a good thing.

If you want a GOOD donut you have to try Spalding's! They are so good that they remind me of Lay's potato chips, I can't eat just one. The only problem is they are so good that everyone knows it and there is sometimes a line. Other than that they are the BEST.

This is the best glazed donut I have ever had. We had to wait around 20-30 minutes in line, but the donuts are so worth it. We also got a cinnamon twist, caramel bourbon cheesecake, cinnamon sugar donut, and raisin cookie and all were so good. Do not skip this breakfast place!

Stopped in based on reviews, very nice staff and baked goods. We got glazed doughnuts and cupcakes. All home made stuff here, can't be bought in a market. Very very good, worth the trip,

As a rule, I never pass up a place that people claim have the best donuts. I got there at 7:30 am and grabbed a dozen for our crew on a Friday morning. Probably no more than a 5 minute wait. They seemed to have plenty in stock still. Even got some warm ones. And they were great. They've got... More

Get there early, and buy the glazed doughnuts. They are the best I've ever had. Their other doughnuts and cakes are very good too. Bring cash, they don't take plastic.

Get there early because they sell out! Grab a grazed donut and milk and enjoy at the thoroughbred park. You can't go wrong to set you up for an afternoon downtown of cocktailing.
