Tony's Donut Shop has been in the Libbytown area of Portland for years. Once you stop in for a Donut or a Pastry, you'll be hooked. They have a large variety of Donuts to choose from and the Baked Pastries are just great. Stop in once and you'll be back for more.

Tony's makes all kinds of donut concoctions, using the best old fashioned ingredients. The crullers are my favorite, with a nice crisp outside and soft inside.

Loved their chocolate glazed donuts. Had the molasses, was good but should have had it frosted. Still very good. Traditional style donuts and they also serve other pastries like eclairs and cream horns etc. It won't disappoint.

This hole in the wall clearly serves a LOT of donuts. We just happened upon it (and we're glad we did). Not fancy (especially not fancy coffee) and no hot chocolate, but it's really not much of an "eat-in" place. There were "regulars" sitting around, however, which gave it a sense of community.

Tony's has been a footprint in this Portland Neighborhood for decades. These Donuts and Pastries will Melt in your mouth, almost Addictive they are So So so Good! Easy to miss as they are set back from the Street- Coffee is Excellent also.

Dunkin' Donuts has great coffee, but for a real donut you've got to stop in at Tony's! A small donut shop, just off Congress Street. About 1.5 miles west from downtown. Just across from the Clarion Hotel. Nothing fancy here. A small sit-in area, coffee, and artery clogging delicious donuts! Presumably cooked in lard? The way donuts are suppose to... More

We eat it for breakfast whenever we're in Portland and bring dozen home for later. All flavors of cake donuts are delicious.

My family has had a summer place in New Gloucester for quite a number of years. The big treat was to get donuts from Tony's. My favorite, and they are all excellent, is by far the jelly that I ask them to powder while I watch. I could eat a half dozen in one sitting, but I control myself and... More

I love donuts and I was excited to try this donut shop. It was within walking distance to where I was staying. It is rather dark when you walk in. We ordered a variety of donuts to try. They didn't taste fresh and they were very dry. Even though we ordered different flavors-lemon, coconut, etc. they all tasted the same.
