Best donuts in town

Whenever I want to treat people to a great treat, I go to Granny donuts for the best in town. The donuts are made fresh daily and when I tend to go there it is very early in the am, and they are very fresh. The owners are friendly and kind. I prefer the old fashioned glazed and my husband... read more

We've been here a handful of times, and while the donuts have always been good the service we receive is always rude and rushed. Even if the place is completely empty the owner or his son will always tell us to hurry up as we are placing our order, not even given the chance to speak. Last time they gave... More

I've been a customer for almost twenty years. The donuts are delicious and fresh. The prices are extremely reasonable. The owner is very kind and funny, and he always puts a smile on my face. His good mood is infectious. Between the happy service and the myriad of colored sprinkles on the donuts, you can't help but go away happy... More

Not at all pleased- heard the place was good so went to try it. As a first time customer, I asked the man behind the counter questions about what was in the doughnuts. He told me to figure it out. I was a bit off put, but went to ask about another type of doughnut that it was not clear... More

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

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
