This place is a local's gem, hidden away next to Congress Street. Old time Italian bakery, complete with smart older folks chatting at the tables - they know where to get the best pastries in town. Their cream horns are the best I've ever tasted.

Purchased a dozen assorted crullers at So. Portland location in the morning as a treat for a visiting out-of-town guest. Tried them with coffee that afternoon. The glazed crullers were heavy, with a stale texture. Unglazed were ok, but still not as fresh as expected....More

Tony's is a Portland landmark. No frills, just great pastries and "sinker" donuts. The staff is great and the prices are very reasonable. Tony's does things the treid & true way--good ingredients, great recipes, and the end results are always a treat.

Went to Tony's Donut shop once. There was a line and the service was just OK. The donuts cost the same as the Holy Donuts. The taste of the donut though is in the same class of Dunkin Donuts. They (Tony's) don't even come close...More
