cake donuts made to order not sitting around waiting for some one to buy them. Once made you pick a icing then a topping of your choice, many to choose from and so good those hot donuts!

“yummy fun”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Kids enjoyed selecting their own toppings. Tasty cake donuts. Friendly owners who moved to AMI from the North to live their dream on the island.

“Tasty donuts”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

This place smells wonderful as you walk towards the bay on Pine! You start with a vanilla cake donut and add a glaze and a topping. We chose vanilla glaze with chocolate chips and plain glaze with cinnamon sugar. Simple and delicious.

“Must have when in Anna Maria”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We discovered Anna Maria Donuts on vacation back in March and I'm so glad we did! The variety of toppings and icing is fantastic. Staff was friendly, helpful and patient. Great coffee too! We made many early morning strolls down to the donut shop and were never disappointed. Highly recommend.

“Cute change of pace.”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Never been to a donut shop like it. Made to order with toppings like Fruity Pebbles and Butterfinger. It's pretty neat.
