“I love Paula's Donuts”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

These donuts are super fresh throughout the day. My first visit to Buffalo, and I wasn't expecting to be wowed by a donut. I was in heaven after eating a glazed twisted donut and sat down to wait for a red velvet. The red velvet donut could easily compete with any made in the Deep South. The service was awesome, too. I will definitely put Paula's at the top of my diet buster must-haves when I return.

“The reviews are right...great Donuts!!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

A million choices, huge delicious donuts. They also has breakfast sandwiches, and bakery items. There are tables inside to eat at, as well as a small patio. We bought a dozen but the four of us could only eat 7 donuts. They are stuffed with filling and quite plump donuts! We like dunkin donuts and country donuts, but these were way better. Loved it!

“Not a donut fan but these are amazing!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Not a donut fan but these are amazing! Went into the store in Clarence late afternoon. We were amazed at the hours Paula's is open but understood when we saw a steady stream of customers
Come in odor donuts! The freshest donuts ever! The powdered sugar strawberry jelly donut was unbelievable- so fresh like it was just baked!

“Best Donuts EVER!!”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

If you haven't tried Paula's (a staple of WNY for years) then you are missing out! Krispy Kreme tried coming here and Paula's ran them out of business shortly after the novelty and one hit wonder glazed donuts wore off! I have yet to have any flavor that was even mediocre let alone just good. Amazing donuts, great staff, great prices, and their new location on Sheridan Dr is spotless! Red velvet and their apple fritters are my favorite but all of their donuts are to die for!!
