Best place in town for breakfast. If you want donuts make sure you get there early. They do sell out. Their hot breakfast is awesome and very reasonable priced and excellent service.

ok, my mistake. We have been going to Red River for 14 years and never ate here. My sister and a gang went last summer and stayed on that end of town. One of the locals told her to try it. They ate breakfast every day for the rest of their trip in 2014 and we hit it 5 days... More

We stopped here at about 9 am and we were glad we did. You gotta get here early and get in line for the glaze and chocolate donuts and very large cinnamon rolls! My brother in law calls the donuts life changing but I just call them the best glaze donuts I ever had!

I can't speak to anything beyond ordering donuts to go but they are my favorite place for donuts anywhere! They are always super fresh, amazing flavor, and just melts in your mouth. They are a "must" for us every time we are in town. But go early because they can sell out!

Very good breakfast and doughnuts. They have good coffee too. Perfect early morning stop. It was a little busy this last weekend, and only 2 waitress's They needed one more. That's my only complaint, but it won't stop me from eating there next time.

The first thing you smell are the wonderful donuts. The smell alone brings you into the restaurant. The entire staff are friendly and ready to fill your order. The Mountain Top breakfast is to die for. The cinnamon rolls are a must. They are wonderfully light and fluffy.
