While this is not the place to sit down and enjoy your breakfast, it is the best place to find a new food obsession. They make the donuts as you order them so if it's a busy day it may take you a little longer, but the wait is definitely worth it! They practically melt in your mouth. Every person... More

I can't believe what a difference fresh and hot makes with a cake doughnut! We tried French Toast, Margarita (my least favorite of our selection -a bit too salty), OC Sand, Orange Dream, Salted Caramel, Lemon-Lime, and Strawberry Shortcake (my husband thought it was too sweet, but I didn't try it). So good! The warmth made me forget myself, and,... More

Stopped in to check out this place for the first time and man was it worth the 40 minute drive! THESE are freaking donuts!! Donuts are made to order, with a variety of glazes, toppings and sugars to choose from so you can get creative. Where I live, all we have are crappy DD stores. My boyfriend said it was... More

This place has some very creative donut 'flavors', like mint chocolate or french toast. This was our first visit and it was fun for something different for breakfast. All the donuts are the same and the flavors (toppings and glazes) are applied when you order. The donuts are always warm when served, so they are best eaten fresh. I think... More

The place was a novelty when it first opened. My son's pre-K was right next door, so we would go often, and have to wait in line. Now, it's always empty. The donuts are tasty (yes, way better than DD), but very small and too pricey to be worth your time. Maybe if the staff was a little nicer, or... More

You create your own donut. The location is like a hole in the wall but you can create some great and interesting flavor combinations. You really must try it, I don't know of any other place like it. My favorite is caramel glaze with rainbow sprinkles.

We get these only when we have overnight guests so it's a treat for everyone! Recently we have noticed that they keep getting smaller and smaller every time we've bought them. Not sure if it's because of how infrequently we purchase them, but they're definitely a lot smaller than they used to be.

If you like Dunkin Donuts then you really haven't had a real donut. Fractured Prune makes each donut to order and has any combination of topping you can think of and will even custom dip any flavor you desire. They cook each cake donut after you order and dip the donuts in the toppings as you order. Try the OC... More

The most variety of donut flavors made fresh for you. The peanut butter is our favorite. Our dog liked them so much he pulled a dozen off of our table and ate them. Even with that hefty vet bill we still love this place.
