These donuts are fresh and very, very good. Even better than "Longs". Only open in the morning however!

A classic donut shop, we arrived about 9:30 on a Saturday and there was a very limited selection. However they did offer to customize the frosting on the plain old fashion donuts. It is definitely a throwback & everyone was friendly.

I grew up literally right next door to Al's. I've seen multiple owners, all leaving their own mark on Al's. The current owners are fantastic! Greg and his son do a wonderful job and it's the same great tasting donuts that I grew up with. The shop is clean but dated. That is part of the allure I believe. It... More

Very good donuts. Friends have talked about Al's for a long time and I finally had them for the first time this past weekend. Loved them!

The donuts are amazing. So so good. We probably get donuts here once a week and the value is great. The line can be slow but it's a personally owned bakery. We haven't eaten in the shop but choose to take them with us. It's a traditional donut diner feel inside. We highly recommend Al's!!!

Fresh, hand cut, and made with love- if your grandma owned a bakery, this is how she would have done it! Friendly and inviting atmosphere, good company, and always the best donuts. Quality is a sticking point, and from what I've heard, always has been. Get there early, and watch the guys in the back make them! It's amazing how... More

Jelly Doughnuts are the best but you can not go wrong with any of the fine pasteries made here.
