Description: Tobey's Donut Shop is a third generation, family owned business. All donuts are hand made fresh every morning using the same basic recipes and techniques as my Grandfather used at "Tobe's Bake Shop" on Franklin Street in 1952. We sell donuts made fresh on the premises daily, limited cookies and pastries. We also have breakfast sandwiches made fresh to order. Beverages are: Fresh hot coffee, cappuccino, hot cocoa, assorted juices, sodas, milk, sports drinks, energy drinks, bottled water, etc.. You can sit down and eat here, inside, on the patio, or at one of the small 2 seat tables on the 4th street sidewalk where smoking is,(for now), still permitted. Larger orders of 2 dozen or more should call and order 24 hours in advance, if possible, as we sell out quickly some days and may have a very limited selection remaining. This is a recommendation and not a requirement!

The food was good. Little cramped but the service made up for the tight quarters. Really not a bad place overall but there are better in and around WG.

Busy but we waited for a table rather than sit at the counter. We used the napkins to wipe the water left on the table from the wash cloth.Ordered tea and honey, no honey, lemon? no lemon. Should have taken this as a sign .French toast was three pieces of bread lightly dipped in egg. Nothing came with it. No fruits or potatoes. Ketchup bottles on the tables need to be cleaned when refilled. Hubby had 2 eggs over easy and bacon. Next time we will try somewhere else. This was our second and last time at this restaurant. Staff was friendly but it is not worth the price they charge. First stool at counter had a broken sign on it.

This was a great little hometown place. Nothing fancy, but good food and a good value. Home made donuts, too!

Tobes offers a wide variety for breakfast. Their pancakes were enormous but delicious. It's a great value for such large portions. No one went away hungry!
