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.

What's not great about Paula's Donuts? I've been a fan for years and no one can hold a candle to Paula's. Made fresh daily, on-site (not frozen, then baked), Paula's Donuts are the tastiest in town.

Even though they are bad for you, one can't resist the temptation of a Paula's Donut (or two!).......met a childhood friend for "coffee" and oh, by the way, there are donuts! Always get a red velvet, and tried the cream filled peanut........not too sweet, but be ready for a sugar jolt-just what was needed while waiting for a flight! Great... More

If you are looking to find a delicious doughnut, you will want to stop by Paula's Donuts! Their donuts are wonderful and inexpensive AND huge! My very favorite is the coconut doughnut, it is beyond good! Also, they have specials which include a cup of hot coffee for a decent price. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

Paula's Donuts has the best doughnuts in Buffalo. The fillings are very generous and there is a wide variety of choices. Beats the doughnuts offered by the chains hands down.

I love Paula's donuts! They are fresh every time I get them and they are HUGE! One of the best things is that they do not skimp on the filling either! Getting a box of donuts is like picking up a box of heaven! (Sorry Lord!)
