Good selection and great taste. The apple fritters were worth the calories. The owner is super nice, friendly and outgoing, and it was a pleasure doing business with him.

I purchased a dozen donuts for my co workers. Which they all loved! But to my surprise the coffee was awesome and the service was even better.

Great place for sweets. Only reason it's not a 5 star cause no one is perfect. Other than that. Love this place. Cinnamon Twists are my favorite. Go by & give them a try. Very friendly place with great coffee.

This is a small family owned donut shop. The donuts are made fresh daily and are delicious. Go early because they sell out of many choices by the end of the day.

Was told we had to get donuts from this small Donut hut. They are the best...My favorite was the maple bacon donut-too yummy. The owner was a sweet lady who chatted us up and introduced us to her honey supplier. Such a great little shop,...More

Huge assortment. A little expensive. Paid almost$7 for 2 fritters. However, they tasted good. I am not sure if I would return or not. Maybe if they have a special or something.

Friendly staff and delicious doughnuts! I especially love the chocolate covered crullers! They taste like pound cake with a wonderful chocolate glaze. Closed on Sunday and Monday, so get enough for 3 days on Saturday!

These are the best non-chain donuts around. Many varieties to choose from, along with other pastries. Donut holes are available for small bites. Three types of O'Henry's coffee are served hot all day.
