Wow. This place lives up to the hype. Whenever we visit family in Ahmerst, we make sure to pick up a dozen for breakfast. If you like donuts, you need to check these out. The angel donuts are out of this world, and the key lime are a personal favorite. And the apple fritters are off the hook. If your... More

Wow. That's all I can say. The angel filled donuts are so satisfying to my sweet tooth I am already planning my return. Thank you for a wonderful treat.

If you want to go to the best donut place in Buffalo, Paula's is it! People complain that her donuts are gone, my suggestion is to phone ahead,go early, or plan on picking another incredible donut. Paula's peanut creme donut is so incredibly awesome.....totally heavenly......that I feel it a crime to leave without one. Unlike Tim Hortons, Dunkin, or the... More

really, seriously, how can such an iconic operation be practically out of donuts holes at 3 p.m. on a weekday afternoon... staff wasn't very nice about it, either... wonder if expansion of this chain is watering down the service element

my family came in from out of town for the holiday. It has become a tradition to have a donut breakfast. They love Paula's donuts. Service is very efficient except for the sandwiches. Rolls and bagels are great but the microwaved egg and cheese are rubbery and slow in preparation. Our favorites are the peanut sticks, cruellers and cinnamon cake... More

Amazing selection of huge and tasty donuts that barely cost anything. Plus, plenty of seating (could use more parking), and big staff to keep everything humming along.

This place truly has the best donuts you can find. The filled ones have plenty of filling and the plain types are light and not greasy. Great atmosphere - counter seats, extra tables, very well organized service and always smiles. I try to visit here anytime I'm in Buffalo. In addition, great breakfast sandwiches on bagels and hard rolls. Very... More

I am not a huge doughnut fan but these are just something else! They have 2 locations and trust me you will never want a tim horton, dunkin doughnut or store bought dougnut again. Its always busy and for good reason. Doughnuts are huge but even better delicious. I also find them to be less greasy than other doughnuts. What... More
