The coffee is so terrible. The lady at the counter wasn’t the nicest either. But.....our donuts were tasty.

24 hours of fresh doughnuts. Doesn't get much better than that! Very nice wait staff and clean storefront. I travel through Bowling Green once a month and this will be a frequent stop.

So these guys were the only show in town until the chains showed up. And they are still beating the big boys. They have the same decor as 35 years ago and the same sign and parking lot. And another thing that hasn't changed is...More
