Best when they are hot though. Got a dozen one day, which were very good. The next day got a dozen fresh sugar donuts. Those were the BOMB!

It was a bitterly cold day when we visited Grand Marais so the idea of a coffee and donut seemed like a good one. The long john pastries were good but the best was the simple cinnamon sugar donut. It was light and fluffy inside with a delicious crispy outer - just as it should be. The coffee was good... More

When we are in Grand Marais we walk up when the window opens (like 5ish) for some hot, fresh cake donuts. They have other options available and it's a must do if you are in Grand Marais!

Nothing to dislike here. They even had gluten free for me and the coffee was good too. We love that it's locally owned and has been for many years.

These really are the best donuts. We would never spend $8.00 on a dozen donuts at home but these are a great treat.

My favorite donut so far is the banana cream filled bismark with chocolate icing. YUM!! There are many more donuts I have not tried from there yet. Maybe next trip.

Finally stopped in here to check out their offerings on this trip. I normally stay away from donuts but wondered if they also made any breakfast sandwiches (they apparently do not, at least I did not see them on the menu). Hint, hint. I did try a blueberry pop over and a strawberry croissant. What I liked about both was... More

I couldn't resist having a donut with a name like that, and the line to get in the door told me it might have some merit. The case was filled with delicious looking treats, and I had my eye on some almond croissants. Sadly, the guy in front of me bought the last ones in the case. At the rate... More

I wouldn't necessarily say this is the world's best donuts at all (especially if you've tried Leonard's Bakery in Hawaii) but their skizzle is a definite must try. Nice & friendly staff. They have an International Board of Countries that have checked in at the bakery. Interesting concept.

Perhaps the best cinnamon sugar cake donut ever. Glazed are very good, but you may find a better choice -- I am partial to Krispy Kreme. This is a tiny place and the line was out the door on Labor Day morning. Worth a stop!
