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.

Paula's makes the best donuts I have ever eaten. My personal favorite is the key lime pie. Any donut that is filled will be very filled. So you could even split one if you wanted. I have never been to Paula's when there wasn't a line...that's how you know it's good.

Great donuts, every kind delicious, especially the chocolate frosted with the custard inside. Yum! They have giant donuts for birthdays or other celebrations. A donut for everyone. Frosted jelly donuts are my second favorite.

Best donuts in western new york. Huge! If you don't eat them, you can use them as training wheels on a bicycle, but why waste them. Invite a few friends and family for brunch and coffee since you can not buy only a dozen with the selection that they have

Paula makes the BEST donuts! Her new location on Sheridan is so welcoming and clean. They always have a wide variety of donuts and pastries available. The help is very pleasant and the line moves quickly. Tables and booths available too. I would definitely recommend Paula's Donuts!

Paula's is by far the best donut/pastry shop. They have a huge selection, all you favorite like peanut sticks and angel cream. Their red velvet donut is amazing! They will also custom make giant donut cakes, you pick what flavor a you want and they will create it for whatever occasion.
