“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were staying at the nearby motel. We bought donuts for breakfast which were delicious. The staff was very friendly as well. It was a pleasant surprise to find a bakery nearby.

“Best doughnuts ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

If you are visiting the Berkshires, don't miss the fabulous doughnuts at Home Sweet Home. They are the best kind of old-fashioned doughnuts in a wide variety of tasty flavors. Blueberry are in season right now. And, you can buy doughnut holes by the piece! The coffee is very good and the service is warm and friendly. Be sure to buy a box to take home.

“Delicious, old fashioned taste, lovely service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This is a great, old-fashioned type of donut shop. The donuts are fresh and they have some unique flavors (ie key lime) as well as all of the traditional ones you would expect. The service is SO NICE. Good iced coffee, too. Great place!

“Can a Doughnut Shop Really Be #1?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Great Barrington has such a wonderful selection of locally owned, quality restaurants. Great variety, and a helpful range of prices. But friends have told me that one of the best of the best is this doughnut shop.

A doughnut shop as #1 in a town with such quality restaurants?

Well, my friends have it right. This place is awesome!

Owner John and his wife serve up some unique varieties of doughnuts that are just plain "too, too good." Spice doughnuts, a key lime special, various chocolate concoctions...etc., etc.

If I lived nearby, I would be in serious trouble. John's doughnuts are delightful. We bought a dozen and the family enjoyed as we spent a day visiting local attractions.

What makes this place super special are the smiles served up by the staff. Just the friendliest, nicest people behind the counter.

So should a doughnut shop be #1 in a town with such fine restaurants? Still not sure I know, but I do know this gem deserves five star rating.
