The doughnuts were dry and I got them early in the morning. I thought they would be warm but they were cold. The service was also very slow and they did bot take customers in order of arrival.

I drive by the HOD every day and sometimes I just have to go inside...the maple bars we're calling my name! They didn't disappoint, they never do. All of the donuts are huge, fresh daily and oh so good. Don't drive by, stop in!

Unfortunately I arrived after happy hour so the pickings were slim. The donuts were very good but not much variety to choose from. I recommend going during happy hour for better selections...going to have to make a return trip to be able to give a more accurate assessment. 🤔

Not a restaurant. Best donuts in the area. Every kind of species you want and all very, very good. Coffee is excellent too. Excellent stop on the way to work best calorie free breakfast you can have.

good service, they get very busy at times, but they try hard to get to everyone. The donuts used to be bigger, but they are still nice and large and fluffy

We stop here every week from work, alternating whose turn it is t buy. The donuts are always fresh, and there is a great selection to choose from. The lines sometimes get long, but I think this is an indicator of their popularity. NOt to be missed.

Sweet bread snobs! I took my aunt here an hour before closing. Maple bars were all that was left.She tasted 1 piece. We bought a dozen for $6.50. My friends and family were 'I gotta go ther" pleased.

Regular donut shop. I heard alot of reviews and thought its a good idea to drive from Seattle for a couple of dozens. I was not impressed with the donuts. Good fresh old school donuts but nothing extra ordinary.

When you need a chocolate fix this is the only place to satisfy your desire. Head out for chocolate frosted chocolate cake donuts or creme filled Bismarcks or just get both like I do. You can't miss. Give it a go!
