If you love donuts, you'll love Paula's donuts

Paula's donuts are a sinful delight. They were "hot" items and I couldn't believe the size and variety of donuts and bagels. The box of a dozen weighed a ton which gives one a picture of how big they are. Even the donut holes are huge. If one loves donuts they couldn't go wrong at Paula's... read more

My daughter and I came in to Paula's and ordered a dozen to go. They are all rather heavy, rather dry and cakey, and sit like a lead weight in your stomach. Or at least they did in ours. My daughter said for her it was like eating a 2lb loaf of dense bread. I know they get rave reviews,... More

Well when Alton Brown comes to Buffalo, this is one spot he always hits up, so since he may be one of the smartest foodies around... On a personal note, my kids wife and I LOVE the ultra delicious REAL Fried donuts Paula's puts out. I don't think I've had a bad one to be honest but some fav's are... More

I like donuts- a lot. My favorite is chocolate cream and it is rare that I find a bakery that does this flavor well. I read an article somewhere that mentioned Paula's Donuts so I decided to stop while I was in Buffalo. This bakery was not only worth stopping while in Buffalo but was also worth a drive just...

Had to check this place out after I saw the ranking on Trip Advisor. I can vouch for the rating - the smell that emanates from this place is so good. And the donuts - GREAT. Love the Angel Creams, and Red Velvet. Have to watch the calories but these are a great treat.

A must-try! A friend was visiting from out of town, and I made it a point to stop at Paula's so she could get some to take home. The donuts are huge so I only go as a treat or when people are visiting. My loss! Love the peanut cream, and the Boston Creme is absolutely divine too! I have... More
