“Great little place”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

This was a great little find for a quick breakfast. We loved their "pillows" and the glazed donuts were so tasty. Great prices too. We all loved it, and the donuts definitely tasted hand made. Worth a taste if you want something fast!

“Yum, yuM, YUM”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

We'll duh! They freshly prepare donuts on site. So good. We got a mix and I was certain I'd love the chocolate cruller but it was the plain glazed that was the favorite.

Be sure to make this a stop (skip DD)

Do this!

“Worth the trip. ...”

It's tucked back in a quaint little corner well worth the walk best donuts in town reasonable prices great value excellent service. I've been here before because I alway manage to make it in every trip at least one morning for the chocolate covered cake and a glazed donut for breakfast the are exquisite

“Pricey”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

First of all they do not accept debit or credit cards. They conveniently have a atm on site that has a high fee for usage and for a donut shop the coffee was sub par. On the positive side good service and the donuts were good.
