I know it's just a donut but most are bigger than normal, I made myself sick because I chose the apple fritter and ate the whole thing but it sure was good, many choices - hard to make decision - they all looked delicious

I love Ferrell"s because they make a maple bismark that is to die for. I'm allergic to chocolate and it's not easy finding a filled doughnut without chocolate on it. The service is always great and the doughnuts and sandwiches and top notch

OK, it's pretty unassuming inside and out, but the donuts are tip top and if you can get those that have just come out of the oven - seriously amazing. We just don't have anything like this in the UK. Really quite cheap too.
