“Crispy discs of deliciousness!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

I've been here several times and the donuts always taste very fresh and delicious. They have regular donuts such as the funnel cake, chocolate glazed, plain glazed, cinnamon sugar, and cinna-monkey, and then they have a special donut of the day that changes daily and is posted on Facebook. They've had some really creative ones in the past, such as chicken and waffle, pulled pork BBQ, and cereal topped. They also have some delicious and creative coffee drinks as well. I've had a ky julep one and an Elvis peanut butter and banana one in the past and they were both very good. They've also started showing classic movies there on certain nights, which is fun! If you go around lunch time there are a couple of grilled cheeses you can try, but definitely seems like donuts are the main draw for obvious reasons!

“Great funky coffee house & artist studio next door !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

The coffee and donuts at this cute shop were great. The donuts have a sweet funnel cake taste. They had seating inside and out. The up-and-coming old Lime ( noli ) neighborhood is a cool place to visit. Don't miss the artist in residence right next door to the shop, Homegrown Press

“Amazing donuts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Probably the best donut I've ever had. The coffee was good but nothing spectacular. But the donut. Oh, the donut. A must-try

“SERIOUSLY GOOD DONUTS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Drove right by this place the first time as it does not stick out on the street. I am not sure about the neighborhood either, seemed a little sketchy but like Eddie Murphy said,,," LACK OF DONUTS MAKE YOU BRAVE"
In a word..AMAZING...we bought a few of all the choices to sample & had a little tasting party...
To me, the chocolate & cinnamon sugar were the top of the class but all were excellent.
Lots of coffee choices too, but we are not coffee drinkers so can't comment on that..I will say that I saw a bunch of people walking out with large containers of coffee's so assuming they are top notch as well.
