Best donuts in the Northeast

Delicious donuts. We get them every year on our Maine Trip. Not to be missed! Always a long line, get there early and expect a 45 minute wait.

We went here to pick up donuts for our grandchildren while visiting. When we got there the line was out the door. We thought it was to eat breakfast but this line was for donuts. It's like this from the time they open til the time they close but we see why now. The best donuts we've ever had. The... More

Only came here for the donuts, got here at opening at 6am and there was a line. Believe the hype, cause you'll look like Homer Simpson drooling over sprinkled donuts. Had a Belgian creame, honey dipped, maple cream, and sprinkled. My Belgian creame was not skimpily filled and dough was pillow soft, makes settling for dunkin donuts from now on... More

Congdon ' has the best old-fashioned, like Grampa used to make doughnuts. There's such a variety, it's hard to choose. Chocolate coconut is one of my favorites. I love to take a dozen and coffee to enjoy on the beach.

Excellent Breakfast. Great muffins, and pancakes. Wait staff friendly and fast. Donut/bakery shop has the best donuts in the area. If you're in Wells you should give this place a try. Check out the whoopie pies. They even sell a whoopie pie that is the size of a cake. I higly recommend Congdons. Get there early. Line forms, but well... More

This place is a gem! The fresh baked pastries and donuts can be smelled in the parking lot and keep you drooling until you get your table. Wait wasn't too bad; about 15 minutes on a busy Sunday morning. Free fresh and hot samples were passed out to customers patiently waiting in line for their orders. Breakfast was great, definitely...

If you love donuts than this is the place for you! As you can see by the other reviews, this place is very popular and well worth the trip!! There is a large selection of donuts, muffins and bagels to choose from...the only hard part, is deciding what you are going to order!!
