Then (I think this will be a lucky day) we went to Lakeside Farms. The concept is unique! In a good way. You go up to the counter and order,... More

Some of the best donuts I have ever had in my life. Don't leave this place without a dozen. Brought some back to North Carolina and my employees couldn't stop talking about how great they are.

If you want to experience the ultimate cider donut experience, Lakeside Farms is a must. With a charming country store, full breakfast served if desired, an outdoor stand for fresh veggies and pumpkins, as well as those amazingly fresh and irresistible donuts, there is something for everyone.

This is always a great place to meet and greet new and old friends. The food is clean and fresh and the servers are always cheerful and have a way of keeping a long line moving along..... There is always something new to look at and its a must to leave there with fresh veggies!

Had lunch there and shopped. The sandwich was large and tasted good. I didn't like the German Potato salad but everything else was good. Brought honey at the store and got some small items at the shop next door. I would go back.

Thank BBVacation2015
