Personable, patient staff. This place has a steady stream of customers and its no surprise because they offer doughnuts of generous proportions that are incredibly delicious! They're worth every last calorie!

Large, fresh, sumptuous delights. Paula started out in a small place and has grown to three stores. This is because of the quality of her doughnuts and word of mouth. Buffalonians drive for miles for these tasty treats.

WOW. That's how I would describe Paula's. Peanut sticks are a regional specialty, which most people from Buffalo take for granted. Paula's brings them to a new level, by making them larger, stuffing them with jelly or cheese! They are truly decadent!

I've found outstanding donuts on Cape Code, San Francisco, Brooklyn and now at Paula's in the Buffalo NY area. What a selection, with each donut treat being more exceptional than the next. The folks at Paula's Donuts use top-notch ingredients, only the... More
