“Have had their doughnuts...”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

OK, just to clarify, I have never visited this location. However, friends who I work with bring Maple Donuts from this location to work sometimes and they are very good. I am a big time pastry fan and am always disappointed with lousy doughnuts as it is so simple to make an excellent one. The icing on the Maple brand is not overwhelmingly sweet and the cake doesn't taste like a can of lard has been inserted. A fine doughnut can be had here if that is what you are looking for.

“Better than DD”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is a must stop when in York. I stopped in here on a Tuesday night around 11pm. I got the lemon cake and the peanut butter cake donuts. Great old fashion donuts. Reasonably priced. Got a chocolate milk to wash it down. All for $3.25!! Not too bad. They have a good selection too, especially during regular hours. Definitely stop and check it out.

“C'mon...it's all you make!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I have often gotten stale donuts before noon at this place. Also, the majority of the donuts seem to be made from the same batter with an addition or 2 ingredients to make them different. All of them are over-the-top sweet and heavy as lead. I like a good cake donut, but the texture of these is simply heavy without the finesse of a good crumb or delight of good flavor.

As a local specialty shop, I had expected much, much more, but after numerous stops and having had them when they were offered at meetings, I see no reason to return. The product that they put out is not to my liking.
