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.

I come here for the best donuts. My favorite is the chocolate old-fashioned! They are $1, and soo worth it! They just kinda melt in your mouth. The old-fashioned donuts have that buttermilk batter flavor and the chocolate frosting covers the whole top of the...More
