Great donuts, get there early

The donut shop is a small, out of the way place. However, they seem to only cook once a day so if you get there later in the morning selection is low. What you do get, however, is always good and worth the early visit.

This is a hole-in-the-wall place with fantastic donuts! Light. Airy. The fritters are especially great and gooey and yummy! You will not regret grabbing a donut or a dozen here. Prices are amazing. But take cash; it's all that they accept. The folks here are very friendly and humble people. The only reason I almost rated it a 4 is... More

This place is off the beaten path slightly and in a very unassuming place in a small strip mall that half of the places are closed. Definitely worth finding as the donuts were excellent. Chocolate frosted were my favorite. Not a big place, but big on quality and taste and freshness.

These are some of the best donuts I have ever had. They open at 5am, plan to be there by 6am for your pick of the litter. Once the donuts are gone, they close for the day. Since these donuts are so good, you have to get there super early to get the best selection.

Stopped in after reading the good reviews and it was worth it! I got a mix for the office and everyone was raving. A great mix with light dough. $8 for a dozen and free doughnut holes to boot. Take a shot and taste for yourself. The chains have nothing on this small business. They only take cash, so hit... More

Fresh baked daily - hand dipped -- there is no lighter - fresher donut made anywhere. Don't go late and don't take a credit card; when they're gone in the morning the shop closes and they only take cash. But they do open at 5 am - and there are usually people waiting already. Great selection - and an office... More

We found this local shop when we moved here years ago, and we have never been disappointed. You gotta get up early to get the best stuff, but its worth it!
