Best Donuts in the Twin Cities! Go early, they run out sometimes! You will not regret this visit! This is completely worth a drive!

Best donuts! They are always fresh and family owned and run! I was a frequent flyer when I was younger and stop going for a while. I started going back and the owner(Father)remembered me from when I use to go there before I had children. Now that is impressive!!! Get there early morning and the donuts are still hot!

His wife is the kindest shop owner I have met. She is likely to throw in some donut holes for free, especially to kids. I think she gets kick... More

I've been to Granny's many, many times since moving to the area three years ago. If you're looking for fresh, cheap, traditional donuts, look no further. A quick comment about the service- a couple reviews on TA have characterized the owners as rude or nasty. I never had a poor encounter with either owner and am always very pleased with... More

Stopped in for coffee to go. Noticed cash only sign. Had $ 3.00. Not to worry: coffee was $1.00 and donuts $ 0.85. Left change as a tip. I did not notice poor service, but service was not high on my list anyway. Wanted cheap and fast coffee and that's what I got. It was a Saturday at about 9:30... More
