Visited both locations at different times to try and get a specialty coffee with a donut. Both times the employees had to huddle to tell me the machine was not working. Really? Or was it because no one knew how to use it? May go back for donuts. Not looking forward to service. Why travel 10 miles when tim hortons... More

The doughnuts are what you would expect from other reviews - tasty and a lot of varieties. I don't know if these are the best doughnuts in Buffalo, but they're highly regarded by locals. It's crazy to call this the best restaurant in Buffalo, since it only serves coffee and pastries rather than actual food, but if you like doughnuts... More

Best donuts I have ever had. They are simply huge and filled to capacity with whatever cream, or jelly you can think of. Large selection to choose from. This is a very popular place, so be prepared to wait in line, but it's worth it!!

Paula's is a well-known and loved spot in Buffalo for some sweet, delicious donuts. When I moved here, everyone told me to check it out and I was not disappointed. The two most popular items are the red velvet and peanut covered donuts. The best part is they are cheap and you can get either as a full donut or... More

How can anyone eat at, let alone extol, a donut shop? Stopped in for coffee, and was persuaded to get a donut. Couldn't finish it. Would rather eat cat food.

If you're in the area and love donuts, this is a must go to place. Extra large and over stuffed delights!

These donuts are super fresh throughout the day. My first visit to Buffalo, and I wasn't expecting to be wowed by a donut. I was in heaven after eating a glazed twisted donut and sat down to wait for a red velvet. The red velvet donut could easily compete with any made in the Deep South. The service was awesome,... More

A million choices, huge delicious donuts. They also has breakfast sandwiches, and bakery items. There are tables inside to eat at, as well as a small patio. We bought a dozen but the four of us could only eat 7 donuts. They are stuffed with filling and quite plump donuts! We like dunkin donuts and country donuts, but these were... More
