These are simply the best donuts ever, and I've tried a lot. But don't take my word for it...my mom (who is an expert) agrees. If you are on the central coast, these are worth the drive into Templeton (if you're not already there). You...won't find any crazy flavor combinations or highly decorated options...just melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. Beyond the donuts? The coffee is good, they make quiches, salads and sandwiches, and they provide great service. You can take your treats back home, to the downtown Templeton park or hang out in front of the verrry cute Templeton Donuts building at one of their tables. In short? Recommended.More

Staying in Templeton for a week, needed to find a local coffee place. I found it. Coffee was great here. Big surprise was the pastries. I took some apple strudle home for wife. Big barn like structure. Super friendly folks. First-rate local place. I sipped...my coffee at one of the tables, outside.More

I don’t eat donuts, but have been here several times to get them for the crew. Finally couldn’t resist the wonder aroma while driving back to the winery and tried an Old Fashioned....OMG, it was so good. Started with a crumb, then ate the whole...thing...it was sooooooo good. I really like coming here for lunch, as the sandwiches are really fresh, tasty, and filling. A full sandwich is a lot, so I typically get a half-sandwich.More

I had heard about the great salads here, and came in for a just barbecued chopped chicken salad when I discovered the very extensive counter display of doughnuts, scones and other baked treats. Forget the delicious salads and tri-tip sandwiches! Just stock up on doughnuts,...the best I've had in years! Having re-discovered maple old fashioned and apple fritters, I've been sampling them at other shops up and down the Coast, and Templeton Donuts makes the best!More

Stopped for quick snack and coffee before driving out form the area. The place was clean and friendly but the food was not very good, dry, tasteless, stale. Threw away order of Danish pastry and tried a donut; not any better. I cannot understand why...this place is popular. Must be locals with no choice but get there donuts here as this is the only place in town.More

Templeton Donuts is yourMiddle America Donut Place that slipped and came to CA. Everything is fresh from the quiche to the traditional donut line. Tri-tip BBQ sandwiches are available mid-day out front and staff always is ready to accommodate sport, family, special event requirements.

Exceptionally flavorful donuts. How can I say that about a donut, but it's true. Always buy a dozen for my crew and they devor them in seconds.

While staying in Templeton I was looking for a place with good pastries and/or donuts and a good blend of coffee. Based on my experience, you find working guys and you'll find good donuts and coffee. So I drove through town looking for a place...with a lot of business trucks parked in front or in the lot. That turned out to be Templeton Donuts Plus. I had a fresh cherry Danish and one of the best cups of coffee ever. I didn't try any of their lunch items but there were two ladies at a nearby table commenting favorably on their salads.More

Templeton Donuts is a very small family owned donut shop with a big taste and even bigger and friendlier service. They have a large selection of donuts as well as scones and muffins. Stop there for lunch too !!!!! Great sandwichs and salads.

I kept on hearing about the salads at the local donut shop. Not a donut eater but went there to check out their signature salads. They are top quality and as good as the best salads any where including Greens in San Francisco.

There are a few doughnut places in and around Paso Robles, but this place is worth a few minutes extra drive time, as it is a real local family-owned business that has been serving up the finest donuts in the area for many years! Save...yourself the waste of time of going anywhere else, for doughnuts go directly to Templeton Donuts Plus. They offer a lot of surprises too!More
