Amazing Donuts

When looking for great donuts, go to Donut World. You could choose from a wide variety of donuts, plain and fancy, and my favorites, apple fritters the size of my face..... Walking in the door brings you into a wonderful world of aromas. The donuts are always fresh. There is no seating area, so... read more

This place has the best and freshest donuts. There is no place better. It reminds me of the old Jolly Pirate shops. No other place is worth going to in my book.

A family owned business located on a small little corner spot in Lancaster is a welcomed site for a sweet craving! Limited parking but worth it to go inside, at least once to smell the wonderful flavors! A drive thru is the most convenient way to get your donuts quickly! Coffee is nice also! Very friendly service!

The staff isn't the friendliest, but the donuts are good. Some donuts are fresher than others and can be a little pricey... But worth the stop.

My only complaint is with the drive thru.... they have never gotten my order correct once.... so I just park the car and go in for the most delicious doughnuts that we have found in the area.

Their donuts are good if they're fresh from the oven. If they sit for any length of time (which they usually do), they're terrible. I live down the street so we used to go there a lot. After getting rock hard donuts a few times, we gave up. Employees aren't that nice and they only accept cash. Wouldn't recommend.

I used to live down the street from this little corner place. Would walk here frequently to get my dozen donuts. This place tops ANY chain around. Even my beloved Jolly Pirates. I am a donut fiend. Seriously. I looooooooooooooooove donuts and here in Columbus we just don't have many places like this. So sick of the Tim Hortons and... More

I just found out about this bakery after living nearby for years. What a find!! My daughter and son-in-law told me about it. I've never seen donuts this large. The bismarck was very soft and tasted like heaven :) My daughter and son-in-law ordered apple fritters and cinnamon rolls knowing from past experiences how delicious they were. We ordered a... More
