These are some of the best doughnuts I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. You need to get there early because they usually sell out before noon. There is usually a line... And the staff are in no hurry to rush you in and out as they enjoy talking with each of their customers... But do not be in... More

The best Doughnuts in Lexington….hands down!! Prepare for a line, but they are well worth the wait. The glazed are our perfection, but try the cinnamon cake and whatever their special doughnut is that day….you won't be disappointed. We've even served their cakes for special birthdays and although they may look a little less fancy than other places…they are AMAZING!... More

There is more to Spaldings than just their famous glazed doughnuts! Try the apple fritters (if they are not sold out), gooey bars, brownies, cinnamon twists.

I wanted to bring some baked goods for a client visit that was close by where our clients were located. This place was recommended by the hotel. Popular enough that there are line out the door. Fortunately for us, we were a bit later in the morning, so the lines were not bad. Most baked good are $1 or under... More

These guys have the absolute best Donuts you'll ever eat. They are so good they usually close by late morning 'cause they run out of donuts and other bakert goods.

If possible to give more then then five stars I would. My family has been getting doughnuts here since my father can remember and he is 70. There is something secret in the oil to make these the best doughnuts in the country. Go early and get them while they last. When there gone that's it for the day and... More

Spalding's is well known for their wonderful doughnuts!! Outstanding and a must for any doughnut lover. They are not your average doughnut. They also have wonderful cakes and other pasteries too.

After hearing so many people go crazy over this place, we finally decided to check it out. We went on a Saturday morning. We purchased a variety of doughnuts and pastries. Everything was good but not nearly as good as we were expecting. A bit dry, actually. Won't be making any trips out of my way to go back. We... More

Best doughnuts in the universe! I always enjoys Spaldings. I wish they stayed open longer but I'll take what I can get.
