“If the "Hot Donuts Now" light is not lit, they're just donuts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

The Krispy Kreme is best if you get it hot off the conveyor. If not, the original glazed will do well with a 8-10 second shot in the microwave.

“You will love these donuts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Soft fluffy circles dripping with warm glaze come out of the drive through window of this place at 6 AM. They have amazing custard filled chocolate frosted orbs and lovely maple long johns. Their soda fountain does not work well, too much syrup and not enough fizz.

“Fresh Warm Krispy Kreme Doughnuts! But not so great staff.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Since a little kid, I've always enjoyed a freshly made warm Krispy Kreme Doughnut. I was in town on business and stopped in for breakfast. The doughnuts are everything you'd expect and the coffee was good as well.

The service was quick but not the friendliest I've seen. I soon saw why. I witnessed a verbal altercation between two employees, right behind the counter in front of all the customers. It was some of the most unprofessional behavior I've ever seen in a business. It didn't come to blows, but these two workers were anything but ladylike. Another employee (maybe a supervisor or manager) stepped in to put a stop to it but didn't separate the employees, immediately tend to the issue or apologize to the customers. That was a real let down.

“Mmmmmm donuts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

If you buy them fresh they are always good. I feel they are overpriced but it is sort of like some overpriced coffee. they have made a name for themselves so people will pay for it. i will return i am sure.
