Stopped in but left without buying. These are some smallish, sorry-looking donuts all in the same basic cake flavor and differing only by which sticky-sweet frosting is applied. For real baked goods, including great house-made donuts, go to Connie’s instead.

Right near the public parking lot near the sea, go here if you are a fan of A) donuts or B) coffee (e.g. espresso) or C) both. We went there twice during our visit to Provincetown, because everything tasted so delicious.

Cute little place for a snack. Had a simple donut, glazed with cinnamon sugar. Topping was good, but donut was nothing special for me. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Fresh coffee was delish.

My kids really enjoyed the donuts but my favorite was the ice coffee. They make it individually and not in a pot and it was the most amazing ice coffee.

I personally thought the donut itself was dry, wish it was more moist. I will say the fruity pebbles donut was enjoyable. My young cousins really liked the donuts so it maybe geared more for children.

My wife and I found this by accident. I'm so glad we did. I seriously had the best donut I've ever eaten. Made to order. You grab a clipboard and order sheet that lists specials or lets you choose the topping and/or icing. Then they...More

You customise your donut - what's not to love? You choose the icing and the topping, and they'll make it for you as a single or a batch. Good prices and wonderful donuts!
