We love Donut Man! It's our go-to donut place. The donuts are fresh and taste the best in Polk County! If you are visiting, you must go! If you live in Polk County and haven't been, go now!

There is no comparison to any other donut shop around. Up to now hole in one donut has been the popular shop locally. Not anymore!!! The Donut Man blows all others away... the buttermilk glazed is a must try!

Had been buying an assortment of the Donut Mans donuts for some time and one day happened to buy a dozen glazed only. These glazed donuts rival or surpass Krispy Kreme when fresh, melt in your mouth good. Drive through and walk-in make it extremely convenient to grab some of these delicious delights.

We chose to get our breakfast here while on vacation based on all the good reviews that were on trip advisor, & we were not disappointed. Absolutely melt in your mouth donutty goodness!! It was worth the wait in line & the wait for a parking spot....the wait was for a reason. Everybody loves these donuts!!!

I just bought a couple dozen for a morning office meeting and some coffee for the road. I'm pretty much a Starbucks fan so let me just rate the donuts. The fritters were fresh made are were the best item on the menu.

This family operated do-nut shop has great pastries and the prices are reasonable, but they pay less attention to their drive thru window than they should. I often drive to the window and they never respond. I often have to blow my horn to get them to respond. It's not because they are too busy. I know that because I... More

Forget the donuts! I don't care for sweet things in the morning, so when I would pick up donuts for the office, I would also get myself the Bacon, Egg and Cheese Croissant. Well guess what....my fellow employees now say "Forget the donuts, bring us the Croissants" They are super sized, super flaky, and super fresh! I highly recommend! The... More

Freshly made, melt in your mouth, old fashion donuts. Do yourself a favor and skip the franchises. They can't hold a candle to these!

This is a great place to get donuts from. There are many types and flavors to choose from, accompanied with quick service. There is almost always a line, but the taste speaks for itself.
