“Outdated, quality is like a truck stop at best!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

with Brueggers, Tim Hortons and DD around the corner, why would you go here? The interior is outdated and tired, the coffee is bland (gas station would be an improvement) and the food items remind me of what you would see in a hospital. I hate to say this but I rate this a gross plus!

“Old school and perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

On the advice of my sister who lives in Rochester, I stopped by Ridge Donut one morning for some goodies and coffee. Very busy place which is always a good sign.

Great selection from french crullers to fried cakes (crispy and moist at the same time) to the best apple fritter I've ever had (still warm from the fryer). Decadent but worth an occasional splurge :-)

If you're the type who likes Krispy Kreme style doughnuts - don't bother even going. These are luscious, hefty gems that are packed with flavor....and calories!

Coffee was respectable, no iced options, but there's no way I'm knocking off a star for that! Small eating area. They also do sandwiches at lunchtime - haven't had those.

Go for the donuts and try those apple fritters, you won't be disappointed!
