Huge donuts. Great prices. They win the perfect donut texture award. We have a family of 5 but had to get a dozen. The angel cream is not too sweet. The flavors are fresh. The donuts are really large and our girls couldn't finish one. A really great sweet treat!

Went to Paula's donuts for the first time last week based on a recommendation from a friend. The donuts were a good size and tasted great compared to the ones from the large donut chains. Service was good. I would go again.

If you don't like Donuts then this is not the best place for you.. .if you do then this is the mecca of this deep fried comestible delight. Generally there is a line, which keeps these nuggets of joy fresh and hot and has the advantage of allowing you to decide on which of the 30 plus sweetmeat temptress sirens... More

This is the best place for donuts. On occasion I pick up donuts for my co-workers. You should see the smiles on their face when I hand them their donuts. My personal favorite is the peanut donut with angel cream. They are with the trip.

I have gotten donuts from here many time and have never been disappointed. The peanut donut is the best. My wife like the key lime pie donut. All of the donuts are fresh and will keep for a day or two at home

some of the best doughnuts you'll ever have. The ones with cream are really loaded, so if you don't like a lot skip those. All are really good.

Donuts are always warm out of the oven and bigger than life. Coffee is excellent as well. Nice people. Every location is always crowded-always a good sign!

Forget the chains, Paula's doughnuts are the BEST! My favorite is the "Red Velvet Cake". Or, maybe the Peanut stick. Or maybe the Jumbo TEXAS Doughnut. So many to choose from. Seriously, their doughnuts are all fresh and if you want an alternative to a "Special Occasion" cake, try their "TEXAS Doughnut". It is a jumbo doughnut where you pick... More

Established in 1996, Paula's Donuts(R) is a family owned and operated business. Our hand cut donuts are baked fresh daily on the premises, the old fashioned way.

Voted #1 Donuts by Buffalo Spree. Paula's has over 30 varieties of donuts as well as pastries, muffins, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, carrot cake, coffee, cappuccino, tea, hot chocolate, and cold beverages.


Excellence is not achieved by cutting corners. Using only the finest quality ingredients, we go the extra mile to bring you the very best in donut deliciousness.

Every Paula's donut has a very special ingredient, something you won't find in any of the big chain store donuts- we make our hand cut donuts with love!


Show your family, friends, and co-workers that you care enough to bring the very best. Our donuts are always fresh and they don't leave the unpleasant greasy aftertaste that you find in many mass produced donuts.

Donuts are supposed to be flavorful and are meant to delight your palate. If the donuts you buy now leave you feeling dissatisfied- it's time to see what a real donut should taste like. At Paula's we are always happy to serve you with the finest donuts in Buffalo.
