Hidden little gem! looking for donuts in New Orleans didn't find anything other than the Beignets. Been there done that. overrated to me personally. Stumbled upon Blue Dot Donut's online tried them on 07/16/11 what a find. They have a Long John that has Maple glaze on top and Bacon!!!!!!!!!!!! wow talk about GR8!!!!!!!! it was really good sweet and salty the donut itself was warm and soft I highly recommend. A large variety of donuts and followed up my exit of New Orleans with one more stop at Blue Dot Donut's for the road. You gotta try it for yourself. Venture out of the French Quarter and find hidden treasures its worth the journey.

As good as promised

We had heard of blue dot from a local, and made it our last stop on the way out of town early one morning, Young lady at counter quickly waited on 12 of us without complaint, and at the end said we were easier large group than most :).

This place's food is as good as promised, probably one of the best donuts I've ever had. However, there is no menu for what type of donuts they have available and the attendant that served me was very short and impatient with my questions about what they had.

Donuts were good, people were friendly. We got the last of the maple bacon, wow sweet and the bacon was good bacon. I would not drive a long way out of the way to go to it though.

You definitely have to get here early if you want a good selection of donuts. They do some fun flavors like "red velvet cake" and "king cake" but nothing revolutionary. There's good flavor but they're a little dense and heavy. If you're looking for good donuts in New Orleans, there are better places. But if you're craving a donut NOW... More

I work at a doggy daycare in town and the owner of this bakery brings us donuts every Friday to thank us for hanging out with the fur-children. The donuts are so good! They are really big and fluffy and I usually have to split one in half. They last all day, too (when they don't get devoured first). You... More

I saw the reviews and had to go here. It was way up canal so if staying near the water you will need a car, cab or trolly to get here. Expect to wait in a long line! The good news is the ride, the parking and the wait were well worth it. I got a sampling of their donuts... More

Well I love maple bars. I have had them everywhere. Add bacon? Even better! I have had them at Voodoo Donuts and other places, but never better than here! Beyond all limits of yummy goodness! We never miss these when we visit! Have one and you won't either! I just wish they had an outlet/ vendor in the Quarter!

We stopped here on our way out of New Orleans and picked up a dozen donuts to eat in the car, we were not disappointed! The donuts were very very fresh, absolutely stuffed with filling and were the best tasting donuts we have ever had. My son especially loved the bacon maple long john, I would recommend this place to... More

We got here a little late in the day. We had an almond donut. My husband said it was so good he could have cried. This will be our first stop next time in town. Really friendly woman working there.
