The best donuts I've ever had in Minnesota. None of the others reach this standard. The owner is gracious and funny. No décor to speak of, but who cares? The product is so good you don't notice. I wish they could be there forever.

This place is family owned and operated. The Owner is a character, always selling you one extra doughnut for a special price. We don't mind because the doughnuts are REALLY good - you don't mind buying one more than you wanted! Very fresh - there is always a line on Friday morning for all of those Doughnut Clubs...go early -... More

I'm kind of an Apple Fritter expert, not to brag. I always check the bakery section of supermarkets when we travel and stock groceries. I never pass up a bakery also. Fritters are why I'm 10 lbs overweight. A good "fritter"has a certain look (craggy and shiny). This doesn't always yield a good fritter, but it usually gets you in... More

Great donuts, great location, great owners. Local owners that sells the best donuts ever! It will be a true loss when this shop is closed for good. Until then..... YUMMMMMMMM! Chocolate old fashions ROCKS!

Live in town and patronize Granny's often. As said in other reviews, the owner and his wife seem to always be there. The fritters are fantastic and huge! They recognize the regulars and, I for one, don't mind paying a little extra "for a good deal". He's a local business and really appreciated by those who live locally and go... More

My son and daughter-in-law claimed these were the best donuts they have had. I was skeptical...what do children know?! Well, I guess kids know some things; I think they were right. (Please don't let them know I said so, it will ruin my image.) Granny makes delicious donuts, probably the best I have ever had. I had a raspberry filled... More

Driving down the road I saw this place and decided to drop in. I have had hit or miss experiences with mom n pop donut shops, but this was the best I have ever been to. The owner, who seems to get mixed reviews from others, was friendly, funny, and welcoming. I ordered two donuts and a coffee, he suggested... More

Yes, go early. I have been there some mornings and by 9AM there is slim to pick from. It is not because they don't make enough, it is because it all gets sold because they are so busy! I love the family that owns this place. Super friendly mom and pop type place and they are always giving free donut... More

The Good: Fresh baked donuts. Donuts are absolutely the best when fresh, and Grannys donuts are baked that morning. The Bad: When the owner tries to give you a "good deal" when buying a dozen donuts. DO NOT SAY YES. I can't tell you how many times I fell for this. He will say something about giving you a deal,... More

Great donuts! One of the places my kids love to go on the weekends. A nice variety of donuts - especially the classic ones.
