“Oh, yes, worth the wait in line.”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Loved the donuts we got, worth the wait in line. Only thing that would have made it better is if they were hot!

“Great donuts!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Loved these donuts - we went there two days in a row while we were in Grand Marais. They are famous for their skizzles - sort of like an elephant ear - and they are worth it. The best for me were their chocolate knots - lots of delicious chocolate frosting. The building is quaint and charming. Great place to get homemade donuts! And they are really inexpensive....I would pay a lot more for what they offer.

“Great Donuts”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

I would like to know how many of these donuts I've eaten over the years.. Can't go to Grand Marais with out stopping... you must try the cinnamon sugar, the chocolate, and the plain... I always take some to freeze..

“Yum!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Busy place but worth it! It gets crowded so grab a couple donuts and eat outside. Make sure to take some home with you.

“Nothing like a fresh donut!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Scratch made every day. Too hard to pick one or two. We usually leave with 8 or 10. The cake donuts hold up the longest if you want to save them and eat them over a couple days. Eat the raised ones sooner than later. The mini jelly donuts are a perfect snack. And you have to try a Roly Poly. Looks like a croissant, but filled with lemon or strawberry and covered in powdered sugar. My favorite!
