“Fun place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Very good donuts but the process you must go through to place your order is a bit arduous. The wait isn't fun either! The bacon donut was delicious though. Kids enjoyed very much.

“only cake donuts”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Donuts are amazing but for me I prefer the raised type and I prefer a donut with some icing---
They barely brush the surface in frosting, also you must fill out a form and check off what you want for just one donut. I asked for extra frosting the 2nd time,,but then it was drenched. If you like plain donuts these seem fresh and if you are on vacation...give it a try but probably once is enough. They are $1.35 and for me I prefer publix or krispy kreme fresh from the fryer and cheaper. I would probably not go back again! They staff brings your doughnut to you and you give them your name like at Starbucks but the man who puts on the toppings is hardly friendly and the general vibe is just...ok! I would probably pass and go somewhere else.

“Donuts! As promised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

I'm usually not real fond of cake donuts, but these were wonderful! Maybe it's how fresh they are (MADE IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE!), or maybe its the toppings (CHOCOLATE WITH HEATH CANDYBAR!!!)... I don't know what the magic is, but this is a place you HAVE to go when you are in the area!

“Fun Place to try on Vacation!”

Cake doughnuts were hot and custom ordered toppings. Tried salted caramel and chocolate icing with powdered sugar. Big hits for our crowd!

“Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Warm, fresh donuts made to your heart's desire. What could be better? They close at 1:00 pm so don't wait too long to get there.
