Really good donuts, but get there early as they seem to run out of donuts. One morning it was a full selection of great donuts and one morning it was just a few unusual ones. They are closed on Tuesdays.

Ok, I know this is not the image of healthiness, but we travel a lot and try donut shops in each place. We just tried a famous one in Vancouver, BC. But, I keep coming back to our Milk Run. It's perfectly in-between gourmet and down home. The maple bacon is my favorite, the green tea one is great too.... More

Don't rely on this place. Out of donuts by 9:45 am. C'mon - doesn't seem like a sensible approach to running a business. This occurred more than once. And to make matters worse, employees couldn't be bothered to express an ounce of regret or sympathy. It sounds like the donuts are great but I won't support this business after my... More

We were out shopping and looking for a cup of coffee when we literally smelled the fresh aroma of fresh baked donuts around the corner. We followed the smell and not only got a great cup of coffee but a few delicious breakfast treats as well - an apple fritter, vanilla sprinkle and maple bacon donuts! Adorable atmosphere - can't...

Just take one smell! They have the most delicious donuts ever! Our favorite is the bacon with maple sugar icing. Yum!

Not sure if it is because they do a lot less volume during mud season but the donuts were disappointing - either a little stale or a little over cooked. $4 for 2 donuts. We expected the quality they used to have.

Great donuts, less than average coffee. Make sure to arrive early before they run out of the good stuff.

The donuts were very good, served by friendly counter staff. The shop has a nice place to sit. Its a good place to spend time when taking a break from skiing or soaking.

Milk Run has delicious donuts... If you can get one. They have the most spotty hours of any place serving food in Steamboat. They close after they run out of donuts for the day, which makes sense, but you never know if they are going to have anything. It almost makes me not want to go at all because I... More

We ate at another restaurant that shares the same building and could smell the donuts baking down the hall. We had to come back the next day to try them. Most of the donuts are standard offerings, but the donuts themselves are dense and delicious. It was hard to stop at one! The atmosphere is kitschy and eclectic with a... More
