“Funky little place- you need to check it out!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I've read so much about this place that I had to check it out. It is a cute little shop that makes the donuts and you pick the toppings. The donuts are far from unique, but are fresh and kids (plus adults) enjoy picking their own toppings and watching as they're made. We will be going back next year!

“Delicious & great way to begin our day!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Such an unique experience....warm melt-in-your mouth donuts made to order. Great topping options too; something for everyone. Our favorites were maple iced with bacon topping and glazed with Cin/sugar topping.

“Fresh and Hot!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Cooked, Iced, and Topped right in front of your eyes one order at a time. Very unique and very good. Huge selection, some traditional, some off the wall and some downright strange. I got the Vanilla and Sea Salt. Spectacular!!

“Awesome donuts”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

I tried Anna Maria Donuts out this morning and bought a dozen. I didn't need a dozen, but they looked great so I said why not?

Anyway, they have awesome donuts, and great service. You get to select your glaze flavor choosing from such glazes as chocolate, glazed, caramel, and even key lime. The toppings range from Oreo, peanuts, powdered sugar, just to name a few. The coffee is fresh and the owners are friendly people, and they take American Express!
