We had a really fun time at this eclectic place. The donuts are one of a kind. They make up so many interesting combinations you won't find at DD. I think they close by 2 p.m., so if you are a late riser you can still get your sugar fix.

What better way to end your stay than to grab a few donuts on the way to the airport... we did just that and wished we had stopped by earlier in our trip. The maple bacon was a perfect sweet - savory mix... Reese's is a peanut butter fiend delight. The barista prepared a very good latte and both employees... More

After reading reviews talking about Mil Run running out of donuts, we planned our visit there for a day when we were planning an earlier start. We arrived at around 9 a.m. and all that they had were plain glazed donuts. While these were OK, they were nothing special. We would have liked to tried some of their specialty donuts.

Get here early! So many choices! Great sitting area. On a side street off of Main. I didn't have the coffee but I hear it is good.

We purchased three donuts to try; a maple glazed; a chocolate powdered sugar, and a chocolate with raspberry frosting. They were all fine. A very cool little restaurant, with comfortable seating. We passed this place twice in the week right after 11 am and they were out of donuts. The day we finally stopped in, it was 9:30 and they... More

Expensive, but excellent donuts. Counter service needs an attitude adjustment. Clean, typical donut shop decor.

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
