I've eaten Greenbush doughnuts throughout the past 32 years, starting during my school years and continuing into the present. Always fresh and tasty. The fritters are enormous, and well cooked - how they get such big fritters to cook through to the middle is a marvel. I've had fritters from other bakeries or grocery stores that were still raw in... More

We were looking for something sweet to snack on one night after going to dinner and doing a brewery tour, so my daughter recommended Greenbush bakery. It's located on Regent street near the University. It's not much to look at from the outside, but when we walked in, we found fritters the size of dinner plates; and not just apple,... More

Absolutely the best Fritters ever, huge and delicious. Especially if you get them just out of the fryer. All of their donuts are good though. Weird hours but open after bar time. Great place do visit. Get a fritter you will not be disappointed.

This place is so good late at night or in the morning. The people who work there are super nice. The yeast and the old fashioned donuts are all good. Can't choose so I usually get more than I plan before going. Their apple fritters are huge and delicious. They can run out fast, so you can actually call ahead... More

This bakery is located on the UW Campus. Get there early to get the best selection. It is a favorite of many! If you are visiting Madison, don't leave town with getting a doughnut from Greenbush. Many come here after a Wisconsin Badger football game. It is also near a pizza place. What could be better than pizza and a... More

These are the best donuts in Madison. Instead of a wedding cake, we asked Greenbush Bakery to cater our wedding in the summer. The staff were so accommodating to our special requests and even called me back to confirm the order about a week before the wedding. We ordered enough donuts that Greenbush Bakery delivered to our reception site, and... More

Super fresh neighborhood bakery. I recommend arming yourself with a large cup of Joe and diving into the fritter (with friends or family) it's huge and you will not find a better fritter!

After moving to Wisco the search for the perfect pastry was on. After many fails, I was told that Greenbush would have that perfect pastry. so, one morning on the way to work I stopped in for a treat. It was perfect. At $1.00 a doughnut, it is also fairly priced for the amazing goodness they produce in their kitchen.... More
