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.
