We live for these donuts. I've gotten custom donut letters for my events and everyone raves about the flavor. The kids love coming in and getting a crown and matching donut in the shape of a crown. They have a new coffee cup that is...More

An abundance of flavors and not expensive. The highlight of my Houston eating experience. Better than Shipleys. Although only open until 2pm. The cake type donuts are my fav and they have donut holes in almost every flavor so could try a lot. The devils...More

This place is so good!! I'm not really a donut person but their cake donuts are amazing. We tried blueberry, red velvet with cream cheese filling and powder sugar (tastes like there is a hint of 🍋) Their kolaches are awesome too! We had the...More

So, would I wait in line that long again? No! ROD is very good and I definitely am not someone who buys donuts often but this place is the hit of River Oaks and the surrounding neighborhoods. I tasted the Cappucino Cream which was delicious...More
