Great Donuts; Run-down Building

The building looks terrible inside and out. I was a little worried when we pulled in; however the donuts were excellent. We picked-up 2 dozen assorted donuts. They were VERY good! I wish they had a better coffee bar. All that was available was one pot of coffee which did not look fresh.

I'm a very satisfied customer of Shipley's. Their donuts are awesome. They have a pretty good variety also. I've never been disappointed with them.

I have been to this location many times over the last few years. Today, I went to get my son some doughnut holes and the guy asked how many we wanted because he had "some" in the back. He gave us 6 holes and after we left my son tried to eat them and I could hear him "crunching" in... More

This certainly beats dunkin or krispy kreme. Great when fresh.

The donuts are fresh, soft and tasty, but the coffee service needs to be improved significantly. A good coffee goes hand in hand with good donuts (think Dunkin, where in my opinion the coffee is much better than their hard donuts), and you really can't enjoy their excellent donuts because of the poor coffee quality.
