Huge donuts.........go early if you want a nice selection. May have to stand in line when/during the snowbird season.........they are homemade and very good.

Amazing that a doughnut store that specializes in nothing but fried dough and lackluster coffee can be at the top of the list for restaurant reviews.
So many good restaurants in the area yet a doughnut shop is given top billing.
Doughnuts are OK, but there is nowhere to sit other than a parking lot with plastic chairs, shop itself is dirty and old, wonder if the health inspector ever stops by.
Not much you can screw up when dealing with sugar and bread so I wonder how many of these so called reviewers ever had a real meal or do they survive on insulin and bed care.
Some of the reviewers even admit to being friends or even suppliers and their reviews are full of s...!
Disappointed at the level that tripadvisor has been brought down by these kind of bloated appraisals that it makes the whole process suspect.
I have visited 5 times in the past year and disappointed more with each visit.
this is the last stop for me and I hope that someone at tripadvisor takes note and removes doughnut shops from the "restaurant" reviews and creates a new category for rodent infested whole in the walls.

In season you may have to stand in line but the donuts are worth it.. Old fashioned donut shop where they are bringing them out hot the biggest honey buns I have ever seen. Delicious

Traditional neighborhood donut shop. Old guys out front with coffee and donuts solving the world's problems. Doesn't look like much but that's not the reason to go there. That would be DONUTS!

A very small bakery with the best apple fritters in existance. A favorite of all the locals for years. Not for the diet shopper. It is just GOOD!
