Kane's will spoil you for any other donuts. They are big and delicious with many choices and lots of flavor. Their Honeydip donuts are fluffy, gooey and tasty. I highly recommend their Bismarks (which you cannot get most places). They are kept cold and full of cream and raspberry jelly - so huge you can share.

The donuts are awesome although they have gone too far on the gourmet side. You can no longer get a sugar crueller, sugar raised,old fashioned glazed. I've been going there for over 50 years.

Hands down best donut that I have ever had! I'm very popular at home when I come through the door with a dozen of these beauties. They are the best tasting, GIANT sized, and best selection of donuts that you could ask for. Home made on the premises but, get their early to get the best selection. Oh, and their... More

I have gone years without donuts, and the gluten free donuts I have found had various issues; too oily, too dense, too spongy, bad texture or little flavor. But today I was transported back to childhood. Today I tasted the most explosively flavorful, richly textured donut that had the qualities of the finest glutinous donuts I've ever had the good...

We return to Kane's whenever we are back here visiting. The variety of donuts is excellent and they are all wonderful One donut is a meal in itself but a dozen will keep for several days and be just as good. The jelly donuts and the cream filled with chocolate frosting donuts are unbelievable with a lot of filling. I... More

Great donuts...... great varieties and some constantly changing flavors. Would taste better if their prices were a little bit lower $4.50 for 2 Donuts is too expensive.

Growing up, my Dad used to work 3rd shift at the GE Plant in Lynn. Once a week as a treat he would bring home donuts from Kane's and they were soooo good. On a recent trip into Boston my husband and I decided to stop in and see if they were still as good. They have a huge variety... More

Kane's Donuts continues to provide some of the best donuts in the North Shore. They keep coming up with new flavors and inventions. Love the mom and pop atmosphere of Kanes- they lose a bit of that when the lines are out the door but I get why! Got Milk??!
