I used to be a fan of donuts delight and I was happy when they came back. After trying this place I am not sure why I have been going all those years. Hands down the best. You WILL wait and they may be out of what you want but that's the price you pay for greatness. They don't line... More

Donuts, muffins, danishes, cookies, are made fresh daily! They have a great variety of anything you are looking for! They also have a frequent buyers program for free dozen of donuts! Great local family owned and family run business! Oh, the soup is homemade as well! You won't be disappointed!

picture this...a fluffy donut filled with amazing canoli cream and then the donut is topped with fudge icing. This is just one of the many unique donuts that Ridge donuts offers. I think I read somewhere that they have nearly 30 varieties of donuts. Every one of them is fresh and made onsite. It is a little shop along the... More

My husband and I were in the mood for a good donut. We found Ridge Donuts and were extremely satisfied. They have a great selection. We selected a half a dozen ( we were only going for two)and enjoyed every one of them. They are made on the premise and are perfect! You just can't have just one. We are... More

These are truly the very best donuts that money can buy. You will be brought back to your childhood with the amazing assortment of flavors, and the peanut (which a lot of chains no longer make these day) and coconut are coated so that there is not a spot without a nut on it. The filled-donuts are completely filled, not... More

I was referred to this Cafe by a visitor to the local hospital where I volunteer. I had known and enjoyed "the best donuts in Rochester" for many years but I wasn't aware they had added a 'Cafe' to their bakery. This happened on St. Patt's day and this young woman, who works at Ridge Donuts told me they were... More

Their peanut donut is as close to THE Scranton Krispy Kreme Peanut Stick as you'll ever find! When you walk in and take a whiff, you're brought back to the '80s/ '90s at KK; only better!
