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.

Donuts are the best around. The cream donuts are filled with cream the jelly filled with jelly. No other donut shop even comes close to Paula's Donuts. Coffee could use some help.

If you like donuts Paula's is the place. Paula's overdoes it, with large overstuffed and delicious donuts. I recommend them HIGH on the donuts list.

Paula's Donuts are the best treat I have ever had. Each one is a meal in itself. My favorite is the strawberry and cream. They are delicious and freshly made on site.

We went to the Main St location. It's sort of kitty-corner, so look very carefully. The store was not very big, but the donuts were. They tasted great too, although they were cold. Sandwiches and a little dining area was also available.

Since moving, it takes longer for me to get there but it is so worth the drive. The food is fresh and doughnuts are not greasy things. Fun and friendly service, too.
