Established in 1996, Paula's Donuts(R) is a family owned and operated business. Our hand cut donuts are baked fresh daily on the premises, the old fashioned way. Voted #1 Donuts by Buffalo Spree. Paula's has over 30 varieties of donuts as well as pastries, muffins, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, carrot cake, coffee, cappuccino, tea, hot chocolate, and cold beverages. TASTE THE DIFFERENCE Excellence is not achieved by cutting corners. Using only the finest quality ingredients, we go the extra mile to bring you the very best in donut deliciousness. Every Paula's donut has a very special ingredient, something you won't find in any of the big chain store donuts- we make our hand cut donuts with love! SHOW HOW MUCH YOU CARE Show your family, friends, and co-workers that you care enough to bring the very best. Our donuts are always fresh and they don't leave the unpleasant greasy aftertaste that you find in many mass produced donuts. Donuts are supposed to be flavorful and are meant to delight your palate. If the donuts you buy now leave you feeling dissatisfied- it's time to see what a real donut should taste like. At Paula's we are always happy to serve you with the finest donuts in Buffalo.

We have been hearing about Paula's Donuts ever since our son started planning his wedding in the Buffalo area. So we knew we had to make a visit when we went up for the wedding. We were not disappointed. We actually went to the store in Clarence, but it didn't matter. The lines are long, and the donuts are worth... More

Tried Paula's donuts at The Taste of Buffalo and was pleasantly surprised. First, they were humongous...like a Goliath's fantasy sweet treat. Then, it actually was very tasty...uniquely tasty. We had the Cherry Stick, and I say we because 4 people at off it. It was very good. I'd definitely recommend them, however I wouldn't recommend an inquiry regarding their caloric... More

Never tried until a friend bought some and shared them at work. I'm not a huge fan of donuts but found them delightful. The icing on the cake(pun intended) was that my husband was impressed. He's the critic when it comes to baked goods. The proof is in the pudding. Try those too! They need to expand to the southern... More

We stayed in Buffalo one night on the way home from Niagara Falls. We were told there were two places we must visit while in Buffalo and Paula's was one (the other one obviously had to do with wings). Although it was a bit out of our way and we were tired, we were so glad we stopped here. The... More

You cannot leave Buffalo without having stopped and picked up a dozen of Paula's incredible donuts! A taste of jelly or custard in every bite-no skimpy filling in these donuts!!

If you're into Huge filled donuts, this is the place for you. Wow, they're filling. Some fillings include, peanut butter, chocolate, key lime and cherry. All were good but almost too much for me. About half of the filling would be about right. I loved the actual donut part. It was soft and perfectly dense and fluffy at the same... More

Fresh donuts made all day, fresh coffee always available as well. A large variety of donuts and pastries available, except they do not serve cherry turnovers, a favorite of mine. They do have apple, though.

I have been seeing pictures and postings on Facebook about Paula's Donuts so it was on the to do list when I made it home to Buffalo last week. It was a bit of a drive from where my family lives, but worth it! The donuts were fresh, tasty, and filling. Best donut I've ever had!!!
