“Can't get any better than this!”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Fresh, hand cut, and made with love- if your grandma owned a bakery, this is how she would have done it! Friendly and inviting atmosphere, good company, and always the best donuts. Quality is a sticking point, and from what I've heard, always has been.

Get there early, and watch the guys in the back make them! It's amazing how much hard work goes into each donut! And remember to bring cash- it's old fashioned. No credit cards, but they will take checks.

I suggest a lemon, or simply a plain cake. Even the small ones fill you up!

Oh, and call in for reservations- they will hold donuts for you! It's awesome!

Reviewed January 2, 2012

Jelly Doughnuts are the best but you can not go wrong with any of the fine pasteries made here.

“Fresh donuts, fresh coffee, and Al is wonderful to chat with..”
Reviewed February 27, 2011

I was here about 2 months ago, it was about 1 am, I couldnt sleep and had a "sweet tooth attack", my oldest son told about this donut place nearby and how they serve the best donuts ever, so we arrived there at 2:30am with my son and his friend, (they didnt have any school and I was off from work) and I tried the long john and took 1/2 doz of assorted donuts home for the younger children that were home and in bed, along with my husband, they loved them as well....

Best donuts ever! Get there early for the best selection. Al's is very popular. Support our local folks and don't go anywhere else, because there just isn't any better!!

“If you love donuts this is the place...”
Reviewed April 11, 2010

If you love donuts this is the place! Made fresh daily. Not the "melt in you mouth" mushy yeast donuts, these have a hearty, old fashioned texture...wonderful stuff...my favorite donuts in the Indy area!
