Went through the drive through, ordered three different types of pastries (donuts in Lancaster). Cream horn was not good, iced bavarian cream same. BUT, the apple fritter was the best I've ever had. One HUGE issue, they do not take credit cards, how is this possible in 2015????

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 grab a dozen donuts and enjoy... 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.

Donut World is not the only open 24 hours and staffed with friendly people but they also have an amazing variety very competitive prices and the freshest donuts you can even imagine. If you go there during the day you can go inside where not only can you place your order but you can also see the donuts in production.... More
