Description: Welcome to The Donut Experiment, where every donut is your creation! We start with a delicious, fresh-made cake donut and then you pick from our huge selection of icings and toppings. Yours can be as simple as plain or glazed or as crazy as key lime, maple bacon or Sriracha. Stop by today and begin your own experiment. We also serve premium, local roasted coffee and espresso drinks.

Short walk from our vacation rental and the perfect breakfast stop for the six munchkins. It took some arm twisting, but they all tried the maple with bacon. Will try again on a future visit.

We got there by 8 so no line, but by 8:30, line was starting. Got a dozen donuts to try...none were to die for. Fun for the kids though. Coffee was bland, but I'm a coffee snob who likes a strong brew. Overall, good.

It's been a long time since I took the SAT, but the order form for the donuts at Anna Maria Donuts was very similar to a question that vexed me oh-so-long ago...and I got it wrong. Again. This is a small shop, so be prepared for the wait...and kids, do your homework. The order process is extra confusing. Turns out you get one donut, one glaze, one topping...not everything you mark off on the sheet. But when you do get the donut(s), it is a near religious experience! I had a cake donut with caramel and coconut. Divine.

Totally worth the wait! The donuts completely melt in your mouth. Any donuts we ever have in the future will be compared to Anna Maria Donuts.
