Donuts and coffee rolls are huge and delicious. Be prepared for the price. Donuts are $24 a dozen but worth it.Coffee roll can be cut into eight generous slices.

I live within walking distance. They make the best donuts anywhere. They are fresh and large. Their coffee rolls are like a full size pie. The jelly donuts are to die for.

The flavors of donuts, reminds me of Baskin and Robbins...it has truly come a long way; from a small donut shop in Saugus, to the newly expansion now in Boston as well.

They take donut making to a level of excellence. I have never seen anyone care so much about quality. Everything is tasty and fresh and well made. $2 a donut isn't bad considering how well made they are. They line up the donuts in front of you so you can really see them well.

A pleasant place to indulge in gluten free and gluten full tasty donuts. It is the best donut shop I have ever visited. My favorite is the Boston Creme filled one.Recently, I welcomed my new neighbor with an assortment of donuts. Now she's going there with her sister!

I first visited Kane's back in 2003 when I lived on the North Shore, but more recently Kanes has become a staple of any visit my family and I make to the greater Boston area. Kane's donuts cover not only the usual cake and yeast varieties, but myriad flavors, fillings, and toppings. These quality and taste of these alone would... More

My father and I stumbled upon Kane's quite by accident about six or seven years ago. My father is originally from Swampscott (a town near Saugus) and he and I had set out in hopes of finding a donut shop he remembered from the old days. We found out that shop had burned down years ago, but were referred to... More

This is a must have item whenever I travel to Boston. Kane's is full of friendly staff ready to serve up their amazing designer donuts. This is not your run of the mill donut shop. These donuts are bigger without compromising flavor. Decorated with anything from Pale Ale icing, real chopped up bacon, creme brule topped, tons of your favorite... More
