Donna's donuts are absolutely fabulous! There is no other way to describe them. Forget steak and lobster, these donuts are the bomb! I am also extremely fond of the chocolate icing she uses on her donuts. I think Donna's donuts improve my mental health; but it is more likely all of the exercise required to burn off the calories after... More

We always hit local donut shops when we travel...not chains, but truly local. My husband is a donut critic, if there is such a thing. We stopped at Donna's and picked up an assortment for the road. Moon Rock, Custard Filled, Peanut Butter ...and a few others. Our favorite was the filled long john with chocolate icing. This wasn't your... More

There is a reason Donna's has been around for a long time.... they offer the BEST donuts anywhere! I lived in California for 9 years and Georgia for 8 and have yet to find better donuts to replace Donna's. I always make it a point to stop in for a dozen when I'm in the Flint/Grand Blanc area.

If you find yourself driving on I 75 through Flint for any reason, make the trip to Donna's. You cannot go wrong with the long johns, especially the ones with white cream. However, this is the go-to place for less usual favorites like Moon Rocks and Date Bars. They are all culinary works of art. No exaggeration. Now, the staff... More

Visited this donut shop because of the reviews. We were not disappointed. Appreciated the fact that any donut chosen, big or small, was the same price. Don't expect anything fancy but casual is good. We even saw several little ones come in pj's. Go early, because we saw several types of donuts run out.

Donna's has been in business for decades and it's for a reason: just the best donuts anywhere, ever. Do not waste your time with the over-sugared, flavorless puffs of air at Dunkin, Tim Hortons or Krispy Kreme. Once you've had a Donna's donut, you'll know a good donut. This is one of the jewels of Flint; you can't find donuts... More

Today its hard to find a real bakery with real donuts....Donna's is no Starbucks, Tim Horton's or even a Duncan. Donna's is the real deal throw back donut shop. The coffee is fresh brewed, strong and bold but none of that Vente mocha machiatia bull crap....but the donuts are the real reason to go. Fresh baked, huge variety and always... More

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but what it lacks in appearance, truly makes up for in taste! Friendly staff, and great doughnuts. 10 out of 10! I always tell anyone who asks about the best tasting doughnuts, its DONNA'S!! I recommend without hesitation, no place even comes close to their doughnuts. Big sized, with lots of... More
