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!

These are the best donuts and coffee rolls I ever had and the cost is very reasonable. Also they have an "interesting" variety you can't get anywhere else.

This establishment has been in the Severn area for a long time. It is pretty easy in and out depending on the time of day but limited parking if very busy. Their donuts are probably the best I've ever eaten. They out do any donut shop around. They are first after Krispy Crème and they went out of business in... More

Yummy, yummy glazed donuts. My 6-yr-old is ADDICTED! Great cinnamon buns too. They could offer a little more variety, but it is a small shop. Owners are friendly and funny. Come support the locals, you will feel good about it! Come before 8:30, they sell out of the goodies fast!
