I have not been here for a couple of years and as I understand, it has new owners. I did like the donuts here in the past and decided to treat the family to some donuts this morning. I got a dozen donuts around 6am....When I got them home, I noticed ALL of the donuts were cold...not cold like from the weather (and it wasn't that cold out so it couldn't have been from that anyway) but cold like they had been refrigerated. I also could tell they were refrigerated since many of the donuts had that moisture/humid look to them like they were in the fridge. Note, I did not expect them to be warm, but I DID EXPECT them to be baked that morning=fresh. I assume they do have fresh donuts later in the morning, but apparently if you are early in to get them, you get yesterdays that did not sell and they pass them off as freshly made that day. Looking at the donuts and tasting them, they for sure were not made today, definitely day old for sure, no question. None had the fresh taste, all tasted stale. Also, the peanut donuts had little to no peanuts on them. Same for the coconut donuts, little to no coconut. The powdered sugar filled creme donuts had little creme in them too. Maybe this place used to be good years ago, but with the old donuts being sold and skimping on the ingredients I would go elsewhere for your donut craving. I will not be back!More

Yes, it’s small and dated, but what makes this bakery special is the warmth and friendliness of the owners as well as the customers. The donuts are very good—my favorite is the apple fritter—are very reasonably priced and the coffee is good. There is a...drive-thru for quick pick up if you need to keep going; however if you have time, you can chat with other people while enjoying your donuts. This place is under new management (almost a year); the new owners take great care to make their customers happy.More

I like to pick out my own donut selection. They also have fancy donuts/pastries. Delicious coffee as well.

I learned of this place when a co-worker started bringing me their donuts. I fell in love because they were so good, especially the Vanilla Angels. So almost every time I am in town, I have to get a donut, or maybe two ;) About...a month ago I came in late in the day and asked for my Vanilla angel. They were out up front but the woman disappeared to the back and returned with the donut! Then this Saturday I went in and again asked for 2 of my Vanilla Angels. They were out but the guy said, I am going to go make you some, I'll be right back. A few minutes later he came back with my donuts and wished me a great day. These guys are so incredibly sweet and treat the customers so well. And if that isn't enough, the donuts...yum. I am going to be back again and again!More

So was looking for a specific type of donut, cherry filled, or maybe a cherry filled bismark. Daughter likes them, I like a happy daughter. Kind of a win-win, right? And fortunately for me (I thought), Donut Connection has them on their menu. Yeah, they...weren't open when I found them on the internet, but they're open early, things are going to work out great! Maybe not... You see, if you go to their web site, and look under products, you'll see Donuts. And if you look under Filled Donuts, you'll find Cherry. And that's exactly what I wanted. But they don't actually sell cherry filled donuts. They sell raspberry. Hey, it's almost in the same color palette, right? And that's really all that matters, isn't it? Have no idea why they don't list the actual products that they sell, but to get up early, to buy something they don't have is disappointing. Won't be back, unless I can confirm they have started making these.More

Really, how can you go wrong? They are delicious.. .they are cheap... and they are right in a convenient spot in Shakopee. They have all the usuals... cake donuts, flavors like chocolate, blueberry, vanilla, they also have long johns, crullers, donut holes.. fancy donuts on...the Holidays. ( I bought one chocolate donut shaped like Rudolph on Christmas Eve) Just go and check them out. You really, honestly can't regret eating a donut.More

Just like Dunkin' only they're not. Get there very early for the best selection! Coffee is great as well.

As the other reviewers have said, the building is dated.. It gives a 70's feeling when you walk in the door. The doughnuts are awesome though, I've never not had a good one and we come quite often. Whether you eat in, or go through...the drive through, the service is great and things are served quickly.More

It's not fancy, but has a wide selection and fresh donuts daily. Love making a stop in for a dozen when I'm in the neighborhood. Much better than grocery store donuts!

Great selection of donut, fast and friendly service. Wishing coffee was better to go with yummy donut. Will come back when in the area.
