My favorite donuts anywhere. Too close to our beach house so it is hard to limit myself to one trip per week.

Family week at the beach was made complete by Cathy's butter cake. Not too sweet, plenty gooey, with perfect yeast dough! Thank you again for making great memories!

This place has the very best donuts! Everything is fresh and has just the right texture and sweetness. I only eat donuts very rarely, but this place is one time I do. Go early for the best selection.

Hurray! I just visited Cathy's 14th St. Bakery for the first time this year. She sells the best doughnuts I've ever tasted. And they were still warm from the oven! There were also some very tempting danishes and a variety of other interesting baked goods.

Incredible fresh donuts made each morning. My preference are the vanilla cream, my partner tends to Boston Cream, but both agree some of the best we've ever had (and we've sampled many). Boston Cream sold out both days by the time I got there this weekend. No problem...Cathy simply fried up a few custom for me both days!! Talk about... More

We visited this bakery several times this past summer. The doughnuts are some of the best we ever had...fresh and delicious. The chocolate-covered Boston Creme is worth special mention...the only bad thing about this bakery that I could name is that they close for the season after Labor Day, so we have to wait until next season to go back!

The cream filled donuts are amazing, but my family experienced sub-par customer service when we stopped in to order a cake. The advertising of policies for ordering ahead aren't great and the "customer is always right" style of service should not be expected to apply here. Unfortunate because the donuts were good.
