These are the best donuts ever! Krispy Kreme has nothing on these. Best and largest honey buns you've ever eaten. Love the chocolate covered long johns. Can't say enough. Great!!

It is very fresh and the staff is very attentive--primarily at the take out window. You can get everything here that would rival a Krispy Kreme which we don't have in Wilson.
