Their new location on Ety Rd provides ample space for many patrons. Their made from scratch donuts are amazing and decently priced.

On a warm weekend night, this place is packed! They serve lots of varieties of hand-dipped ice cream and their freshly made doughnuts. (The Long John doughnuts are called Long Joe's in honor of the owners, Joe & Beth.) My favorite pastry is the Bavarian Cream-filled, chocolate-iced doughnut.

What a selection on ice cream flavors! Always good. They also bake their own donuts and pastries which are excellent. One of our favorite places.

This place is the best! My kids love it there! The ice cream is to die for, and I'm completely addicted to the doughnuts! Not only is the food good but it has the best atmosphere for kids, family and friends. It's colorful and the staff are always so friendly!

I've been a sold Donut World patron for 20 years. Always said they were the best donuts anywhere. However, now that Gypsy Joe's is serving up these delectable treats they are now considered the front runner in Lancaster for fresh, delicious donuts. Must try the maple bacon cake donut. Perfect combination of sweet, salty and decadent. Friendly family atmosphere. A... More

A very neat place to visit. We love different places rather than chains sometimes. They even have doughnuts! Service was friendly as well. We loved the cupcake flavor and Eskimo kisses. We will go back!
