Country Donuts has been in Crystal Lake for many years and the donuts are still the best you can get! It is the only place to go for the freshest, most delicious donuts you can buy. We have been going there for over 40 years.

Voted as one of the countries best and I agree, Coffee is always fresh and so are the pastries. Country Donuts is very helpful with the community also.

Country Doughnuts are absolutely delicious. I love the buttermilk doughnuts because they taste just like the Buttermilk Drops I bought from McKenzies in New Orleans. The only difference is in New Orleans, they were were shaped like large meatballs instead of a doughnut. The twist...More

The best "boughten" treat for our Thursday morning Bible class. We cheer when Howard comes in with the familiar box. On other days, though, home made cookies from Nancy cheer us more. This is a great place to stop just for coffee, too.

We have been making the worlds best donuts in Crystal Lake since 1976. Scaled, mixed, bench rolled and handcut using the science of baking. We take great pride in doing it RIGHT! No shortcuts, just delicious donuts. Watch our bakers work through the kitchen window! Our coffee blend was developed by master roaster Mike Levinson, and it is roasted each week by Coffee Masters of Spring Grove, Illinois. A medium bodied all Arabica blend that stands up to cream and sugar. Our own espresso is used for our Lattes and iced coffees. We stand by every product we make with an unconditional guarantee: Love it or let us know and we will gladly replace or refund your money. We live and die by every sale. We want your experience to be a delicious one!
