“Old fashioned donut shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

It is a bit of a hole in the wall, but the donuts are out of this world. Best for take out; get a dozen. All the standard varieties plus an ever-changing array of new flavors. Try blueberry, or mollasses or red velvet. I love the cocconut covered chocolate.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We stayed at a hotel across from Tony's and read a little about it online before going. The line was out the door, which is always a good sign, but it moved quickly. There are any assortment of donuts, muffins, turnovers and pastries, as well as beverages. The inside is a little run down, but the food is great. The first morning we ate inside while scoping out a map of the city and we shared a red velvet donut, molasses glazed donut, and a chocolate sugar donut. It wasn't until we went back the next morning for breakfast that we realized the donuts yesterday had been a little dry because these were much better. All together we got 5 donuts, 5 pastries, and 4 cartons of milk for $14. A great value!

“Best donuts in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Every other Friday morning the principal of our school buys us all donuts from Tony's. On that Friday the teachers' room is the first place we hit. A very nice treat!

“YUM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Cream horns, pastry puffs, crullers, the list goes on. The donuts are hand cut and made so tasty they are impossible to resist! Prices are decent too! Always packed in the morning with the regulars, but I usually grab and go.
