Paul's doughnuts are delicious. The aroma is sweet and yes, alluring. The dough has a yeasty flavor that is so tasty without any icing or frosting. They are soft and moist. Really delicious and not too tremendously sweet or over-glazed. These are nearly perfect, large, fresh, hand-made doughnuts. Paul's offers many other delicious pastries as well, from cinnamon rolls to... More

Love Paul's donuts, but saw the cinnamon twists and they maybe better than the donuts! Will definitely be back soon. May have to get a dozen donuts AND some cinnamon twists.

When they are cooking you can smell them all over town. Their donuts just melt in your mouth. All I ever get is their donuts.

One look, one bite will tell you this place is the real deal. No machines here...just good quality donuts and pastry. Very nice young lady behind the counter was very patient with a first time guest. Got a donut for there and one for later. Both were excellent. They had other pastry and lots of cookies too. A real gem.

Take the best birthday cake u have ever tasted. One with the highest quality butter cream icing. Like at a $10,000 wedding. Well.............they take that kind of icing and stuff the donuts with it. Nuff said! well I will add this - theres a 50% off shelf - where you can rack up a good score without having to worry... More

Paul's is delicious, cheap and fast! Their doughnut is more "cakey" compared to Krispy Kreme. I recommend that everyone try a Paul's doughnut because it's truly the best Graham has to offer.

No kidding, Paul's donuts are to die for. Far better than those offered by the donut chain operations.

I called this fine Bakery/Pastry shop on the recommendation of my daughter, who is a Burlington resident, looking for a small birthday cake for our weekend trip to the city to celebrate my husband's 60th Birthday with our family. Oh, am I ever glad that I did!! For a mere $10, I was able to purchase, by phone, a scrumptous... More

After reading the reviews, we decided to try the donuts here. They were good but I was expecting more from reading the reviews. The selection was limited. I actually found much better donuts at Jelly Donuts down the road which are as good as krispy Kreme. The apple fritters could not compare to the ones at Jelly Donuts.
