The donuts here are fluffy and delicious. It's definitely first come first serve. They sell out very quickly so you have to come early if you want a selection to choose from. There aren't a lot of options but what they do have is always yummy.

Papa Jakes has been around the Sedalia area for years...and there is a reason for that! The donuts are second to NONE! My favorite is the blueberry cake donut, but they are all delicious. Get there early before they sell out.

Not real impressed. sell out too fast.. not a big selection. .Try the donut palace... I think they have a better selection and they're cheaper.. the building is bigger and you dont feel so cramped trying to order your donuts...

Over the years I have watched this family operated local business continue to serve the best donuts available "anywhere" Since I now live 2 hours away I decided to share Papa Jakes with newfound friends, They could not believe the difference.

Hot, fresh, and delicious! Donuts are made daily. Kids love the donut holes! Its a iconic place in Sedalia. A must have! Better than Krispy Kreams by far!

Wonderful donuts! Best time to get them is at 5am. They are still hot, and melt in your mouth. The price is unbeatable!

They are worth the drive, usually sold out by 10am. When we are traveling through Sedalia we always make sure there is time to stop and have one of the best donuts around. they are the best!

I can't say anything but, really good donuts. Get there early because once they run out, the door is closed. This place is a little out of the way, off the beaten track, but well worth the trip.
