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

I had the good fortune to stop-by when they were just bring out a fresh, FRESH ! I mean it was still warm (insert Homer S. drool here). Oh Nirvana! The fresh grease our Heart Surgeons pray for.

The old man and old lady became rude. and point to a price sign on far right of top case. Why not just put... More

Ok I'll admit it - the donuts are fantastic. But I groan every time my kids want to go there. The service is just terrible: - On a busy Saturday morning you can easily wait 15-20 minutes in line, even with just 6 people in front of you. Service is SLOW. - Donut availability is variable. They could be picked... More

Granny's is a West St Paul institution. Family owned, this local, cash-only establishment serves traditional donuts at a very fair price. $10 per dozen. A delicious way to start your work day and make your coworkers happy. Has surprisingly late hours for a donut shop.

They are so mean and rude I would not spend my money with them! I walked out! Cubs donuts are just as good and you don't have to deal with the absolute insults from the owner/Staff.
