“Its a Donut Shop, not a Religion!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Sunday night, about 8:30.. the red "HOT.." light goes on and traffic routes itself into the small parking lot. The line goes out the "This Door Must Remain Closed" front door. The women in front of us seem to be unsure why they are in line. Everybody buys a dozen or two and takes off. Its worship service for the faithful at the Sugar Temple. No, wait, its just good donuts, people ! Ok, great donuts that harden the arteries while you smell them. But that's it! No eating in - just Git 'n Go!
