Pretty good for a laundromat even in a blizzard

In the ADK people and businesses need to be multitalented. In this case the business owners combined a couple very different but very compatible businesses. And I love it. If I lived nearby I would do my laundry there all the time. As it was, I was passing through in a blizzard but saw the sign and stopped. Was glad... More

I was incredibly skeptical about visiting a laundromat for a donut. I still don't really get it but the donuts were AMAZING. You have to stop here if you are in Tupper Lake. Cash only! So good!!!!!!!!

Don't think fluffy airy no substance doughnuts...think deep fried cakey heaven doughnuts and let your tastebuds rejoice. The hidden gem of the adirondack doughnut!!

This is a hidden gem! You would never think to stop here because it looks just like a laundromat, don't be fooled. These are the best fry cake donuts I have ever eaten. The best thing is that they frost or glaze them right in front of you. You have to try the maple bacon donut- simply amazing.

We spent the week in Tupper Lake and decided that one morning we would get donuts....and it was worth short drive and so many choices of flavors and sprinkles or nuts to the frosting put on them. they were cake donuts and not indigestion causing after eating, cant wait to go back.

Who would think that a Laundromat/souvenir shop/donut shop would have the best donuts around? The cake donuts, especially the Maple and the cinnamon are excellent, and at 75 cents each an easy indulgence

So you must stop in this quirky donut/laundry mat/gift shop if you are in Tupper Lake. Gt the donuts while they are still hot so before noon and you will find yourself, as we did, saying nothing but "ummmmm"

All the above, topped with friendliness. A nice place to while away your time while waiting for your laundry to finish. Very clean & safe environment. I wish I could have tried a delicious smelling donut, but had just finished breakfast...she makes the donuts all day long, so they are always fresh.
