Don't go to a chain restaurant for your coffee, breakfast sandwich, or donuts. Way better here and just as fast.

Visiting Groton for two days and found this little shop the first morning. Went back the second day as well. Quite possibly the best donuts we've ever eaten! We tried the double chocolate, the crumb and their blueberry jack--similar to a hand pie. The cake donuts had a slight crunch, the perfect texture, and weren't overly sweet. Wish we lived... More

Went with my 5 yr old child to get donuts after a doctors visit. No one in the store but us. The lady behind the counter couldn't be bothered to be nice - even to a very well behaved kid - REALLY??? Word of advice: local family-owned businesses should have the ability to have nice wait staff - that's a... More

Everything is fresh. Best donuts and delicious apple strudel. Not your frozen goods like at the supermarket chains. This is the real thing!

Flanders Donut and Bake Shop has been in the area for many years and takes pride in all their baked goods. Their apple strudel is the best in the world. I wish I could have it all the time, but I would look like Jabba the Hutt if I did!

We are loyal customers for more than 40 years. Family living out of the area always ask me to bring Flanders bagels when I visit. Apple strudel, every kind of donut -- everything is outstanding.

Went out of our way to find this small but effective shop! it is clean, easy access in a small strip mall, and entices you from the moment you walk in! Apple strudel is the best ever-donuts light and have great fillings--danish big and generously topped with cheese or fruit--muffins are very good--want to go back as we just sampled... More

Hands down. The best homemade donuts anywhere. The best service. The best experience. If you are anywhere in the area and thinking of a coffee or donut, this is your place. My only wish is that they would open on Sunday's.
