The building looks terrible inside and out. I was a little worried when we pulled in; however the donuts were excellent. We picked-up 2 dozen assorted donuts. They were VERY good! I wish they had a better coffee bar. All that was available was one pot of coffee which did not look fresh.

I'm a very satisfied customer of Shipley's. Their donuts are awesome. They have a pretty good variety also. I've never been disappointed with them.
