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.

The BEST angel cream filled donuts!

White powdered angel cream donuts are amazing! Way better than dunkin. Careful, you can't eat just one and I'm sure these have more than your average number of calories. Still. I'll be back for more. Yum!

They are decent sized donuts and come in a wide variety of flavors. But in my opinion I didn't really think they were all that great. I had a chocolate glazed donut and I actually found it a little dry. It's a place to try if you want a huge donut but other than that I've had better.

These are by far the best donuts ever!! They are bigger and tastier than any others. There are many favorites to choose from. And even some new flavored. You will definitely be hooked on these donuts.

By all means the best doughnuts in WNY. It is a family owned business that has expanded to several locations throughout WNY.

I love the Red velvet donuts- they are more like a log/loaf than a regular donut because they are so large but they taste divine. Very cake like and tasty!!

If you can afford to splurge on calories every once in a while, you might as well make it worth it. These are the best donuts I've ever had and I'm old enough to have had my share over the years. Love the cream filled ones, they make the most wonderful white cream in all different varieties. Haven't tried them... More

I walked into Paula's around 9:30 on a Wednesday. There were a few people sitting around. It is a large facility with plenty of counter help. I can see the rope off line up where people would form a line if it got busy, which I am sure it would be in the early morning. The staff was very quick... More

Delicious donuts and good coffee. My only regret is that this business doesn't expand into serving soups,salads and other fare (dare I say healthy) to compliment the wonderful dessert that the donuts provide.
