Description: Hidden little gem! looking for donuts in New Orleans didn't find anything other than the Beignets. Been there done that. overrated to me personally. Stumbled upon Blue Dot Donut's online tried them on 07/16/11 what a find. They have a Long John that has Maple glaze on top and Bacon!!!!!!!!!!!! wow talk about GR8!!!!!!!! it was really good sweet and salty the donut itself was warm and soft I highly recommend. A large variety of donuts and followed up my exit of New Orleans with one more stop at Blue Dot Donut's for the road. You gotta try it for yourself. Venture out of the French Quarter and find hidden treasures its worth the journey.

You have to get here EARLY if you want good selection-it's a DONUT SHOP! People stop in and order up dozens for work meetings and whatnot. I've gone in twice only to "rob" the people behind me from the Maple Bacon Donut experience by taking the last few. (Good for me, bad for them). The donuts are made fresh and... More

I've been on a donut kick the last couple of years, and ultimately I've settled upon this shop as my favorite. They offer a great variety in either the traditional or cake donut, though I would suggest arriving earlier in the morning to ensure you've got the full selection available. I've found it lacking at times after 9:30-10:00AM on weekends.... More

I had heard such great things about Blue Dot, but I wasn't super impressed. The selection was limited and the donuts weren't out of the ordinary.

Stopped here one morning to bring home a treat for my man. Too bad neither of us enjoyed our donuts very much. I'm not a big donut person to begin with but my man is and he was even more disappointed than me. They don't have many options besides donuts. I won't be returning any time soon

We read all the great review before going there and expected amazing things. Being for out of town, we weren't familiar with the transit system, and found it annoying to get a pass. You have to have exact change. They can't give you change on the trolley. We walked most of the way there because of how random the trolleys... More

I saw the Maple Bacon Long John on one of the food shows months ago. I live in north Louisiana so I made a mental note to try it the next time I was in New Orleans. So glad I did! My husband and I both got one and we both loved it. Would have loved to try some of... More

What an unusual donut shop! Owned and operated by 3 police officers and staffed by family members this donut shop is a really different. The first time I saw a Maple Bacon Cruller I had to buy it. Different but really good. Two of my favorite things combined in a very creative pastry.

I rode the streetcar out from downtown to try these donuts with bacon. Pretty tasty, but could only eat one. It was a nice day, so I sat outside in the little dining area and had a glass of milk with my donuts. Lots of business coming and going. At one point, the line was out the door. But they... More
