This is a great doughnut shop. Open 24 hours and a wide variety. They have stools and tables there also. Can be a tad expensive some times, but not too crazy.

Donuts were very good. Much better than your grocery store or chain store selection. I'd put them up there with your better donut shops. Some reviewers have compared them to buckeye donuts and I would say they are very similar in terms of quality. I will say my wife enjoyed the buckeye donut slightly more than the peanut butter filled... More

My family has been going there for years and I believe they are easily one of the best in the central Ohio area. You almost step back in time when you enter the restaurant. They wait staff is wearing older style outfits but they have plenty of staff on duty to help. Prices are better than any of the commercial... More

It is hard to find really good fresh donuts any more. There are Tim Hortons and Dunkin Donuts everywhere now. Jolly Pirate is one of the best around. Go on the weekends and get the "special" donut. You need to be early, though, they go quickly.
