Great mom and pop shop. Fresh, friendly, small donut shop. After a few visits they know your name and are so friendly. Has been in the same location for about 30 years. It has been run by the same family all these years.

Found this place on TripAdvisor when visiting Denver. Very nice selection of donuts. We tried the apple fritter and red velvet. All very fresh and reasonably priced. Coffee is good too. Will definitely be back.

I have gone to The Donut for years and years now. The donuts are incredible. Not your typical chain company donut, but warm and delicious hand crafted delights.

Have tried many donut shops; this is by far the best. Relatives visit from out of state and request The Donut. Have even mailed them to donut fans and they love these!
