Papa Jake's has always a special occasion place when I was a kid, so when I was back in town, I made sure to go by. The selection is good, but of course, it's better the earlier that you are there. Prices are *very* good....More

So the first time I had Papa Jakes, late last summer, it was to die for! Then twice in November we went, and what a disappointment!! They all tasted like they were freezer burnt or stale or something. I'm afraid to go back!

Papa Jakes has been around the Sedalia area for years...and there is a reason for that! The donuts are second to NONE! My favorite is the blueberry cake donut, but they are all delicious. Get there early before they sell out.

Not real impressed. sell out too fast.. not a big selection. .Try the donut palace... I think they have a better selection and they're cheaper.. the building is bigger and you dont feel so cramped trying to order your donuts...

Over the years I have watched this family operated local business continue to serve the best donuts available "anywhere" Since I now live 2 hours away I decided to share Papa Jakes with newfound friends, They could not believe the difference.

Hot, fresh, and delicious! Donuts are made daily. Kids love the donut holes! Its a iconic place in Sedalia. A must have! Better than Krispy Kreams by far!

Wonderful donuts! Best time to get them is at 5am. They are still hot, and melt in your mouth. The price is unbeatable!
