Great donuts. Very friendly owners. Cute and clean little shop. Arrive early though or pickings are slim! Their apple fritters are the best around.

I stopped in Donut Star on Saturday 10/1 at about 6 AM. Ordered 4 maple donuts, 2 sugar and 6 glazed. I got home with 4 chocolate but the others were as ordered. HOWEVER, they tasted day old. None were fresh! We have bought their donuts numerous times and never encountered this. Extremely disappointed.

Good doughnuts. I've come near the end of the day and there hasn't been as much selection. What I have had has been good but I'd like to come earlier in the day to see a wider selection. The owner had been very nice the few times I've been in recommending the best deals he offers. Very nice little, local... More

We like to stop in ocassionally on the way to school. Owners could not not be more friendly. Fair prices. My daughter's favorite is the Apple Fritter. We love Donut Star!

Always on the lookout for a great donut shop. Nope. Dry and conversely some things are greasy. Hole in the wall. Such a bad impression never going back.

Huge variety of donuts available. Service is very fast. We noticed the owner remembers what people had ordered in the past. He asked you if you wanted the same or something new this time. The donuts are a great size and always very fresh.

Great doughnuts. Have been when fresh made, very good. They always advise the best deals for customers. Very friendly owners. They always seem to know the people ahead of me in line.

I am from the area, and had heard that Donut Star is great for years. Finally stopped by the first time last fall, and have stopped whenever I feel like a donut since. The donuts are excellent, and the pricing is extremely reasonable. In addition, the owner seems like a great guy. Show up as early as you can -... More

We love Donut Star. It's a small mom-and-pop donut place and you really need to get there early to get a shot at the good selection but the donuts are always fresh and soft. The owner is incredibly sweet and friendly. There's always a lot of people in and out but there's almost always a place to sit if you... More
