Wow so many to choose from... gotta love the bacon and maple!! The donuts were just a little bit dry... but the coffee fixes that right up!

Delicious, fresh cake donuts with creative and fun toppings, in a fun and funky environment with wi-fi. What more could you ask for? I love that the main seating area is completely separate from the sales counter, making it a great place to hang out to surf the net and spend time with friends. And add to that their drive-through window is open 24 hours a day, to accommodate the insomniac donut craving. My only suggestion? The employees could be just a bit more cheerful and friendly. One of our favorite places!

We visit Wichita periodically where the street roll up pretty early during the week but were pleased on last trip to to discover this coffee place. We liked it so much that we ended up going there every night for 11 days because the coffee is superb. They also have a huge selection of donuts with unusual names but the ones we tried were very dry. The donuts may be fresh in the morning but after 10pm they're pretty stale. Since there's free wifi, we found the clientele to be mostly students studying or watching movies. Down and dirty decor but clean and serving a broad selection of great coffees and other drinks. We'll be back on our next trip to Wichita.

I loved it! My husband also loved it! The donuts were delicious, and the whole place felt nostalgic. We were looking for somewhere like here that is unique to Wichita. We had actually just left the Spice Merchant, and learned that the coffee they brewed was fresh from there.

And who doesn't want a tiny pin that looks like a donut? This is a fun and quirky place. I went to see a friend's band play. It was acoustic and we were able to still visit while we listened to the music. The beverage options are better than many coffee shops. Boba tea, loose leaf teas, fun bottled soda, fun hot chocolates, and your typical coffee drinks.

The customer service was excellent. I heard from one or two friends that they didn't have good service, but they were friendly and patient as we chose which donuts would make up our dozen.

I admit that I hated the root beer donut, but the bottled ginger beer was refreshing. All the other donuts were outstanding and so fun!

Nothing like some donuts, boba tea, and free live music with friends to start your weekend!
