It's worth the trip to Tyrone. The donuts are being fried before your eyes, yummy, soo fresh it beats Tim's frozen stuff. You can buy various things maple syrup, preserves, fresh bread, ice cream, cheeses and a whole lot more.

The items I purchased were great tasting, but was disappointed not to see the mill itself ?. Or to see it work.

Great spot to stop for baked goods, especially their butter tarts and freshly made sugar doughnuts! Hidden gem!

If you live in the area or have been around Clarington for a while you don’t need to read a review. Great place for a variety of baked goods, baking needs, and an assortment of other goodies. Great staff!

Seems like all of the donut shops now carry mass produced donuts. You can really taste the difference. My mom took one bite and said, " I think this is the best donut I've ever had." She's 84. Seriously cute place with seriously great donuts!
