I guess the only reason this place stays in business is because it's the only donut store in the area that people can find. Donuts were not very good and were expensive. $1/donut isn't so bad for a couple of donuts, but there is no discount for multiple donuts, so you pay $12 for a dozen donuts that don't taste very good. I will not go back.

Stopped in just to get a donut while the family was lagging behind. Ended up buying a dozen more for the rest of the family. The way they devoured the donuts means we will be back for the next few days. If you're in Orange Beach don't miss stopping here in the morning. My family agrees - absolutely the best donuts anywhere. Oh, and the coffees are great and pacman too.

Right on Beach road across from lots of condo rentals and on the way to and from where your beach front condo is! Donuts made fresh each day. Coffee made to your liking with lots of add ons. Also cold drinks. We had the apple fritters which were much lighter than the ones at home. They were very delicious. Go early or at least by 10 a.m. They have small indoor seating or several outdoor tables. Most customers were buying to bring back to the condo for family. Many choices in donuts-even with lucky charms on them!!

City Donuts has some of the best donuts around! I had the chocolate cake donut with peanuts and it was delicious! The store closes early if they sell out, so make sure that you go early.

On a trip to the south I had some of the specialty donuts, namely the Margarita and the Pina Colada. These are absolutely delicious with nuanced flavoring. These are fresh, nouveau recipes that I think place this shop somewhat above other donut shops. And I am a donut fanatic (don't tell my doctor.)
