I have probably passed by this place on many occasions and never noticed or stopped before a friend said I must stop on this trip. I was not disappointed. Their baked goods are magically delicious. Wish I would've picked up a dozen to bring home. YUM.

Can't make a trip to Grand Maria's without a stop for wonderful fresh donuts. Loved the skizzles!!! The line was long to get in but it was worth the wait.

The worlds best donuts never disappoints - they are truly a gem of this town. The people there are very friendly and the food is just outstanding - they truly live up to their name! Grab some donuts, something to drink, and enjoy them on the shore outside!

My dad was a baker and visiting WBD brings back so many great memories! The donuts are awesome. I especially love the Skizzle! The coffee is great and I now have a collection of mugs also!

If you have a need for a pastry in the AM, this is the place. Make sure you try the cinnamon sugar donut.

We've stopped here before and always have to have our donut "fix" when in GM. If you eat them fresh - yummy. If not don't leave them in the bag - they get very greasy/messy.

We stopped here 3 times in four days. The cinnamon and sugar donuts are just like the mini-donuts you get at the fair, but better. OMG these are so EXCELLENT!

The name says it all. These are super donuts of all varieties and an astonishingly low price. I think the raspberry bismarck is my favorite.

The line out the door (all day) tells you that you are on to something good. Basic donuts are a mere 75 cents, with fancy items running up to a few dollars. These treats are made with love daily, and they often sell out. Closed during the winter months, my kids have been talking about these since last summer !
