Granny's is a West St Paul institution. Family owned, this local, cash-only establishment serves traditional donuts at a very fair price. $10 per dozen. A delicious way to start your work day and make your coworkers happy. Has surprisingly late hours for a donut shop.

They are so mean and rude I would not spend my money with them! I walked out! Cubs donuts are just as good and you don't have to deal with the absolute insults from the owner/Staff.

Granny's doughnuts is a fantastic doughnut shop and a true gem on Robert Street. The doughnuts are fresh, moist, delicious, and the kids(and I) love watching them make the doughnuts through a window. The owners are a wonderful local couple who take true pride in their craft which is reinforced when everyone leaves with smiles on their faces. Kids usually... More

Donuts are good... and not badly priced. Guy that was running the place needed a course in customer service though... we couldn't tell if he was trying to be funny or if he was just a cocky jerk. Made comments like we should have known which donuts were what.... including the ones that didn't have signs. Then tried to make... More

if you want French crullers, get there by 8:30 a.m. or they'll all be gone. These are the lightest, fluffiest raised donuts you'll ever eat. So light, you may convince yourself that no calories are involved.

Good donuts-rude owner/son-standoffish and initially rude. Was just trying to engage in information exchange-first time visitor-employee pointed to news article on the wall and really did not care to talk. I understand maybe many "dumb" customers walk through the door, but what happened to customer service--oh well, not sure I'll go back-don't need fat pill that badly!

I was here thirty years go. The husband and wife team that own and operate the place have aged but their welcoming smile and doughnuts have stayed the same. By 10AM most of the cases were empty. Customers buy doughnuts by the dozens. The owner knew everyone in line but me. One duo has been coming here before they were... More
