Stopped in around 5pm had a bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich with coffee and apple fritter, the service was fast a very prompt, food was very good and the selection in the bakery is amazing. They have a huge selection of sandwiches and burgers and more to choose from, super clean and friendly place to have a meal.

The donuts are great. The people behind the counter before 7 am HATE their job, HATE their customers and wish we would all die so they could eat the donuts themselves, which are awesome.

Lots of locals came in, like we did, for fresh made breakfast - real eggs, just cooked biscuits, crispy bacon - and the amazing donuts. Don't be put off by plain exterior, or sharing a lot with a gas station - this is a real find!

I visited this bakery yesterday, and thought it was ok. The doughnuts were good, but there's a better place in Monticello to get doughnuts. Give both a try...and see which you like better. Also, Amons does have a little lunch counter with breakfast and lunch sandwiches if that's what you're looking for.
