When traveling I like to look for local spots. This one is about 5 minutes off the exit and is a great alternative to the same old chains. Do yourself a favor and stop here heading up or down 65!

These are the best donuts you will ever taste. The pineapple fritters are so good. You have to be there early or they are sold out of the favorite ones

These donuts beat Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts. They are absolutely delicious and the owners are always very pleasant. Highly recommend.

We love Kay May donuts! The blueberry cake and apple fritters are the best donuts you will ever eat. They melt in your mouth. Only problem is they do run out.

Recommend over Dunkin donuts. More moist and fresh. I support smaller business over big chains. Recommend you give them a try.

K-May Donuts have some of the best donuts in Athens. I really like the pumpkin donuts and the cinnamon rolls. The breakfast sandwiches are really good too, but they are not cheap.

I love Kmay but something has gone wrong with the Harvest location. No one greeted me when we entered the store. When greeted the person acted like she did not want to be there. Display case was not replenished even though many donuts were on the rack. I'll save the best for last, the donuts were not fresh! The cake... More

Staff is not friendly or helpful. I did not like the donuts they were a little hard. I will not stop by there again. Just my own opinion.
