They only do cake donuts here, but those are my favourite anyway. Quite a few varieties of glazes, toppings, sprinkles. Maple bacon of course. Prices very reasonable for an independent, non-chain/fast food place.

Good old fashioned recipes and great service. Always a treat to have. Also great service and smiles from staff. A must stop if you visit the Harbor Quay.
