I can't rate it a 5 -- it's a donut shop!

We eat it for breakfast whenever we're in Portland and bring dozen home for later. All flavors of cake donuts are delicious.

My family has had a summer place in New Gloucester for quite a number of years. The big treat was to get donuts from Tony's. My favorite, and they are all excellent, is by far the jelly that I ask them to powder while I watch. I could eat a half dozen in one sitting, but I control myself and... More

I love donuts and I was excited to try this donut shop. It was within walking distance to where I was staying. It is rather dark when you walk in. We ordered a variety of donuts to try. They didn't taste fresh and they were very dry. Even though we ordered different flavors-lemon, coconut, etc. they all tasted the same.

We stayed across the street and decided to give Tony's a try. The donuts were good and coffee hot. Friendly non pushy staff. While munching our quick breakfast at least 15 people came and went. Very popular.

I think this is my 3rd trip to Tony's and I'm a sucker for their old school mom & pop shop. Lots of flavors but it surprises me they don't have any frosted donuts. There are other interesting ones like molasses glazed (or non glazed) and many other baked items to choose from. I was a little bummed that there... More

Been around a long time and locals as well as tourists love it there. Personally, I think the donuts are just OK. I prefer the cinnamon sugar donuts at another bakery located in South Portland. I will give Tony's another try and hope for the best. When they had a branch in South Portland (for over a year), the coffee... More

We visit Tony's every year (for past 35 yrs) and get mouth watering donuts. It's a must eat place to go!

The kids ask to go to Tony's every weekend, it is hard to say no when we all love it. We all have our favorites: mine is the molasses. The front cases are full of other baked goods including lemon squares.

This place is a local's gem, hidden away next to Congress Street. Old time Italian bakery, complete with smart older folks chatting at the tables - they know where to get the best pastries in town. Their cream horns are the best I've ever tasted.
