General American doughnut is totally awesome. I went there three times in one week to get donuts. I guess I can say I’m a self proclaimed donut connoisseur. I like the simple donuts in this place does a simple right.

I'm a tad reluctant to spill the beans about the General American Donut's food truck at the Garfield Park Farmer's Market on Saturday's because they sell out of their great donuts in no time. The blueberry donut alone is worth the drive. I try to...More

Damn that’s a good donut. Saw this place, pulled over unexpectedly. I had a Boston creme and the coconut and both were excellent. Treat yourself, have more donuts, here is an excellent choice.

This was our second visit to GADC (the last one was about 3 years ago) and they were still great. The exterior of the building is unassuming but they've converted the inside of the building into a hipster haven with minimal rustic decor. We tried...More

I came in one rainy morning and it felt so cozy inside. The fireplace was going and the seating looked inviting. I came with the intention of getting my sister in laws favorite donut from there, the Reese's PB one that is filled with peanut...More
