“Sinful!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

This Mom-n-Pop donut shop makes some amazingly good donuts. Moist, sweet and melt in your mouth. Some of the danishes use cheap ingredients and I wouldn't recommend, but the raised donuts are amazing. Cake donuts are very good with homemade toppings that are incredibly rich.

Skip well advertised and over hyped VooDoo donuts in Portland try a real old school donut here!

“A mountain Icon”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

The checker board paint job is grandfathered in and doesn't have to meet the "Sandy Look" that the rest of the town is adopting. Fresh donuts daily - hard to beat. A must stop for those heading to the mountain for a day on the slopes.

“Good Dougnuts”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

Some of the best dougnuts around. It's a great place with good coffee and you can pick up your snow park pass there.

“The Best Around”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

These are the best doughnuts I've had anywhere in or around Portland. Joe's is a great stop-off if you're heading from Portland to Mt. Hood or passing through to Central Oregon. These are large, fluffy, doughnuts and all are absolutely delicious. Full of flavor, cooked right...not too little or too much, good quality ingredients you can taste and not overly sweetened like some places mistakingly will do (If you find a doughnut that has to use so much sugar you can't taste the doughnut, that's not a good sign). You can't miss the white and red checkered building on the right-side on the main route through Sandy as you go to the mountains. This is a great time of year for skiers and you would do yourself a favor to stop in. Someone told me they make a great breakfast burrito but I wouldn't know since my eyes are fixated on the doughnuts whenever I walk in.
