Great Friters! When I stop I get a dozen! I give them away to friends and co-workers. They all hate me for that! They are so good you can't just have one bite, next thing you know it is all gone! Only wish that they...More

Very good donuts and excellent service. I had a Bavarian cream Bismarck and it was very fresh and tasty. Heads up on the Long Johns - they aren’t filled which was both surprising and disappointing to my sister. The black coffee was excellent.

Easily the best and most fresh donuts in Des Moines. Try the Snowball Bismarck or the old fashioned! My favorites!

Owners are some of the nicest people you will EVER meet and the Doughnuts and Pastries are some of the best in Iowa. Non - assuming building, nothing fancy...but you will be glad you made the trip!

If you go there early enough you’ll have a chance to buy the old fashioned donut! What a treat:-) Anyway, you’ll love whichever donut you choose to get:-)

There is nothing fancy about Donut Hut, but the donuts and pastries are incredible. Friendly, local owners who greet you at the door. Very reasonably priced for a quick donut and coffee or for a dozen to go.

We get to Des Moines twice a year. We were told of this place 4 years ago. We never miss stopping in. Picked up doughnuts for a event Sunday. Everyone wanted to know about the place. Several friends are now customers.
