I love the fact that this store has the "old time--retro" look and feel. The donuts are always fresh and taste amazing. I love the maple yeast and the toasted coconut.

What isn't to like about these donuts? Nut rolls, sprinkled, glazed, iced, love them all and they have a lot of donuts. Drinks . . milk, coffee, soft drinks are also available. Has a drive-thru also. My favorite place to grab a donut or long john!

Always fresh and great selection. Love maple glazed the best. I could eat a dozen. They have a drive thru or you can go in. Always making more, not like other places that run out before you get there!

It had been a while since we last had donuts here because it has went down hill for the past few years. I got the cinnamon roll it was huge almost could feed a family and very good. Even though we arrived after 9pm and they still had a great selection of donuts.
