“BEST DONUTS EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We drove 40 minutes out our way to enjoy these donuts. Two words: WORTH IT!!!

We enjoyed maple frosted, cream filled, and a maple cake. Get a dozen! Try them all!!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Best donuts that we know of in Cincinnati. Made fresh everyday and it smells so good in the shop! Their coffee is good as well. Donuts are very soft and not too sugary but just right. They always have a variety and price is also very reasonable!

“Bestest Donuts Ever!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Homemade donuts at the highest level. Nice to see a successful family owned and oriented business doing things the right way! All of the donuts are GREAT, but did I mention they smash some of them into bacon! #donutlicious

“Engaging staff, super 'nuts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Bopped in after dining on Vine, and was greeting courteously by the staff. Amazingly appealing donuts even though I was full. Opted to return later for the goods. Apple fritters and long johns ~ ah...

In addition to Over-the-Rhine, there are also shops in Loveland and Williamsburg.

“Better than the other locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

These doughnuts are so good that we have them at least once a week in my office. The variety is excellent, everything from basic glazed to slightly "exotic" maple with bacon. You can't go wrong with any choice here. The only drawback might be that they close way too early for the crowd that hangs out in that area. They would probably double their sales if they stayed open past midnight.
