Love donuts and really did love the ones at the Donut Friar. They have a wonderful selection and they are very fresh.

We came here later in the morning so the donuts weren't as fresh. It smells amazing and these are traditional donuts...had a slight crunch on the outside but the inside was a bit dry. I'm guessing if you go first thing in the morning it's much better. Kinda disappointed as I was expecting fresh donuts throughout the day.

I wish I could have had one of everything! The wonderful aroma draws you in and then everything looks so tantalizing. We got one and went back for another and brought home some delicious cinnamon bread!

We come back every trip. My son loves donuts and this is his favorite donut shop by far. Donuts are always fresh. Lots to chose from.

Good fresh donuts. Disappointed that Sunday morning they didn't have eclairs made and would be 1 hour wait. We chose other pastries instead. But the eclairs are delicious (we had them Wednesday morning).

You smell this shop before you see it. My husband and I had coffee and shared cinnamon bread. My daughter and her fiancé had vanilla and caramel lattes and cinnamon rolls. We loved our food and drinks and enjoyed them at a table in the courtyard with our dogs!
