The best donuts anywhere for many, many years! Cookies, cakes, pies, pastries and coffee, too, but you must stop in to this small bakery and try the donuts! You won't be disappointed!

I gained 10 pounds this winter. I couldn't get enough of their treats. The cream horns are huge, I mean, sharable huge. I haven't eaten anything this good since Memere's kitchen. The Cookie Jar is a household name now

The treats are great and a comfy sitting area is provided. The smell when you walk in takes your breath away as you pick from an array of assorted pastries, donuts, cookies, etc..... And everything feels nice

Every year visiting friends in South Portland, we make an early AM stop for our bakery goods. The selection is excellent early AM. I personally love the variety of jelly filled donuts. They are good sized and reasonably priced. Delicious. Service was terrific. Highly recommend

I stopped here on the way to Portland Head Light and was very happy I did. One bite into my glazed donut and I was in heaven. Everything else in their bakery cases looked wonderful as well.

We stopped here for coffee on the way to Fort Williams Park, and were pleasantly surprised! It was packed full of friendly locals, and it was nice to chat with them a bit while standing in line. Lots of tasty donuts, breads, and pastries. I had an apple donut and savored it piece by piece all day. Great old-fashioned place... More
