“Great fresh, donuts”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

I am reviewing the donuts. They are wonderful and there is a nice variety from which to choose. They were fresh and tasty, including the apple fritters. I like the chocolate-iced old fashioned best.
Unlike other reviewers, I found the gentleman behind the counter very friendly.
Actually, we had a nice chat.

“A smile could go a long way”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

There aren't many places in town where you can stop and grab a quick donut and a cup of coffee. They also offer kolaches, croissant breakfast sandwiches, hot chocolate. The apple fritters are sweet and yummy. All in all - not a bad place for what it is. The customer experience could be so much more positive, however, if only for one small thing - if the lady behind the counter would only offer a pleasant greeting or even just a smile. She seems personable to the regular customers she knows but I got a deadpan expression in spite of my cherry "Good Morning" and a smile. Her service was efficient just not welcoming.

“Never again”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

This was a poor excuse for a bakery. The very limited amount of baked goods were nothing great. The attendant behind the counter was not at all hospitable or appreciative of the business, as she shuffled around behind the counter in her stocking feet!
