Title says it all. I dont live in Denver, but if I did, I know what I would eat most Saturday mornings! Just plain old fashioned unpretentious donuts- cinnamon, sugar, jelly, icing, ahhhhhhh

“Consistently Superior”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Much can be written about favorite donut shops. But, no discerning afficianado would be doing justice to their opinion without sampling these delightful offerings.
Populated by an endlessly pleasant collection of employees and extremely loyal customers, waiting time is rarely more than 60 seconds.
Even if you are "committed" to another shop, your palate deserves at least one sampling.

“A Truly Great Donut”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2010

In a day and age when most dount shops are either all copycats of one another using the same old boring recipes or those trying to stand out from the crowd make their donuts so sweet that they are almost sickening, LaMar's is truly a breath of fresh air. This location is not the most inviting one in this chain to look at from the outside but the inside is certainly cozy. However, it is LaMar's great donuts and other baked goods that are the true attraction. Everything is flavorful without being completely overwhelmed by overly-sugared glazes and fillings. In addition, anything one gets is of a decent size and a very good value.

The various coffee drinks here are also very good and I truly believe far superior to Starbucks. However, that does lead to my one minor caution/complaint about this Aurora location. I have been in here on several occasions over the years and been unable to get my desired drink because the espresso machine is broken. Their regular drip-style coffee is very good but, sometimes, I want something more powerful or fancy. This does not happen all the time but it has occurred enough that it is noticeable. I mainly bring it up in the hope that somebody from LaMar's will read this and either fix that machine for good or replace it with one that is more reliable.

I have tried all of the other donut places in this part of Aurora. In my opinion as a life-long donut lover, going to any other place in the area is a complete waste of time. LaMar's is truly that much better and worth any extra drive to get there or time spent waiting in line.

Yummy donuts. Fresh and soft and warm. Friendly staff. Super cheap, like it's still 59 cents for some stuff. Good coffee, too.
