the only place where a person can get salt rising bread AND pasties. yum! Wide variety of cookies, cake, and yeast raised donuts to choose from. The price is a bit steep but the quality is worth it.

We've passed the sign on 75 so many times advertising Cops & Donuts. Finally took the time to visit the bakery. The donuts were plentiful. So many varieties to choose from. A little costly at $14+ a dozen. Large donuts & quick service. Friendly staff,...More

The decor and theme are fun. We enjoyed looking around. The doughnuts were decent sized but they seemed a tad undercooked and chewy, with not much flavor. At $14.99/baker's dozen, they're wildly overpriced. We can say been there/done that, but we won't stop again.

Their specialty doughnut is the squealer- maple frosted, yeast doughnut with strips of bacon. These doughnuts are good, taste like French toast with bacon, but like the rest of the doughnuts in the shop, they are pricey. We stop a couple times a year as...More

Our friends talked of Cops & Doughnuts all day long so we had to see if all the hype was true. It is two store fronts and not necessarily a large choice of donuts but they are HUGE. The cinnamon roll was still warm and...More

The Rueben sandwich comes in two sizes, the big one is enough for two people and priced at $11. It is delicious. Lots of doughnuts and treats to choose from and a great souvenir shop.

I've lost track of the times I've been PAST Clare on the drive to and from "up north". "There's the exit into town...rest area is coming up...there's the rest area...okay...be quick...okay...all done...lets get in and get going." Maybe stop into a certain sporting goods store...More

There is a doughnut shop and bakery in Clare, Michigan that has been in constant operation since 1896. This foundation business was within weeks of closing when the members of the Clare Police Department came to the rescue. All of them. That's right, all nine members of the local police department banded together to save this historic business.Dubbed "Cops and Doughnuts," the business boasts handmade confections of all types. Join us for a warm fresh doughnut and a steaming cup of Cops Coffee while you enjoy the police decor and friendly, and very safe, atmosphere. Come and see the new store in Clare that everyone is talking about.Since opening as Cops & Doughnuts our business has expanded in to other adjoining store fronts allowing us to ad the "Cop Shop" our apparel and souvenir shop. And the "Traffic Stop Diner" featuring many American Diner favorites.
