I was afraid the new Dunkin would hurt this place and it probably has. However the Dunkin donuts don't even compare. The donuts here are excellent, service very friendly, and the coffee is great. Give a local your business you won't be disappointed.

Best donuts in Citrus. Well, best donuts since I left Texas. There is something for everyone. Feeling basic get the glazed. Feeling a little extra, grab one of those huge fritters, especially the raspberry jelly one. Really good. They also do holiday pies.b

Finally, after living here for nearly 2 years, I have figured out where the locals go for coffee, donuts, and bagels. Everything I have had from here has been fresh, and up to my expectations. The staff is friendly, and the dining area is peaceful....More

The donuts are large, and very tasty. My favorite is the double chocolate glazed donuts. Get there early, because if you don't, your favorite might be sold out!

First, Fresh Start is not a chain, thank goodness. Their donuts and coffee are delicious and in my opinion put Dunkin Donuts and KrispyKreme to shame (unless you like to OD on sugar). I've never ordered a sandwich or a meal, but I've seem many...More
