Amazing Donuts

I come here often and I love it all. As a local, they tend to get at least $30 a month from us, and that *might* be an understatement. We have not been disappointed yet with anything, Favorites are the chocolate knot, maple long john, and the raised glazed.

Okay this place is cute and quaint. Good donuts and good coffee. You do get a line that comes outside and down the steps. It moves pretty quick unless you Don't Have Cash. They don't take cards, so be prepared. There is a cash machine outside across the street. To me the donuts were just average. I was more impressed... More

Lots of choices, and their service was quick and organized despite two long lines heading down the street! The donuts were hot and fresh, and you should make sure to try a skizzle! Nice prices too.

Simply stated, these are the best donuts one will ever find. Friendly family atmosphere that continues to bring me back with my own family, after years of visiting while I was a kid. Summer '16, can't get here soon enough!

Having lived in many different places, some where donuts shops are on almost every corner- I've tried a lot of them. This place in my opinion is just average (depends on what you like). The donuts where hot and fresh, as they should be and the selection was ok. Service was good and quick. I'd eat them again, but wouldn't... More

My family and I traveled to Golden Eagle Lodge for a week and had to stop at The World's Best Donuts and the title fits. They are the BEST donuts around.

My daughter and I stopped in on Sunday am to buy doughnuts before we headed out of town. There was a short line, but not bad... and the doughnuts were great... they definitely lived up to their reputation. We sampled mostly glazed doughnuts. One word of caution though, make sure you count your doughnuts before leaving. I am NOT saying... More

We are not donut experts. We rarely eat them and are mostly disappointed when we do. Nonetheless, we stopped in and bought just one glazed donut. I thought it good, my wife proclaimed it as perhaps the best donut ever. For me, the best donuts are fresh out of the oil. These were not. But the glazed donut had a... More

Our annual review of Best Donuts is just a reaffirment of what an essential part of a visit to Grand Marais this place is. Warm (56F each morning outside), friendly, and killer bakery aroma as you open the door. The donuts are great, but there are a variety of other decadent offerings as well. Besides we found our picture with... More
