Mr. Melvin's donuts are always fresh and delicious! My daughter and I stop by every Friday for an end of the week treat and the variety never disappoints. Apples fritters are HUGE and the best I've ever had. The old fashioned donuts are good, as are anything else he offers. Great, locally owned business with a far superior product to... More

This is a family type little donut shop that makes donuts and coffee. Everything is plain and donut shoppy, but solid and exactly like donut shops do that aren't trying to scrape a bit of dough out that you won't notice. They make donuts the way they always have and probably always will. And they're good. And big. And worth... More

Melvin and his son run this family owed shop and have been for over twenty years. They are great people and they make a great donut. My favorite is the big one that is half croissant and half donut. Try one, you will like it.

This is not a chain store. This is a local business with friendly staff. I haven't had a bad donut from this place. The peanut butter donut or the apple fritter have to be my favorite.

These are truly the best donuts we have ever eaten. The prices are great and the food is excellent. If my teen has friends over or we have family visiting, this is a staple for the morning. After having these, the chain donut places just don't taste good anymore. The glazing doesn't coat your mouth here. Their hogs in logs... More

I love this place. If you want a delicious donut, this is the spot, but don't forget to try the other items. There are sandwiches, and freshly baked cakes and pies. You can stop in for breakfast or lunch and get a good meal at a great price.
