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

Fall is the best time for my favorite pumpkin donuts. Unfortunately these were a let down - not enough spice flavour and overly sweet.

They have a variety of donuts and they are all yummy. I have 2 suggestions that might make this shop more efficient in the future: 1. can we do it in a self-help type of way, so customers won't wait in line so long? 2. Can we sell some sugar free donuts for the diabetic customers?

Don't miss these donuts - unless you're on a diet! The red velvet is to die for! And they make a "birthday cake" filled peanut that is scrumptious!
