Paula's doughnuts us by far the best place to get this morning coffee companion in the greater Buffalo area. The doughnuts are made old fashion style and at old fashion size... It takes me three sittings to eat one peanut log. The bakery offers three convenient locations. Priced just right for the pocket book, means for 12 dollars you take... More

Paula's is an absolute treat! When my high school students earn a special treat, I go out of my way, about 25-miles, to get them Paula's. The peanut with cream is to die for. The white cream with chocolate frosting, again, to die for. The strawberry shortcake, again...let's face it, you can't go wrong with Paula's. Tim Hortons and Dunkin... More

Paula's is worth the trip. The donuts are huge and overfilled. You will never be disappointed. You may have to wait in line on Sunday's. They are very busy.

and extremely rich. Also fabulously good. If you have a hankering for donuts, this is the place to go. The only reason I don't give five stars is because my stupid Puritan instincts will not allow it. Paula's donuts are really good. Get there early on Saturdays and Sundays.

Truly the BEST doughnuts you will ever have! Friendly staff, small town feel. We live about 30 minutes away and stop here any time we go near the place. A family favorite!

Paula's donuts are the best. Still homemade like they should be. Puts Tim Hortons and Dunkin to shame. Very friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Try some today. You won't be disappointed. 🍩🍪

Established in 1996, Paula's Donuts(R) is a family owned and operated business. Our hand cut donuts are baked fresh daily on the premises, the old fashioned way.

Voted #1 Donuts by Buffalo Spree. Paula's has over 30 varieties of donuts as well as pastries, muffins, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, carrot cake, coffee, cappuccino, tea, hot chocolate, and cold beverages.


Excellence is not achieved by cutting corners. Using only the finest quality ingredients, we go the extra mile to bring you the very best in donut deliciousness.

Every Paula's donut has a very special ingredient, something you won't find in any of the big chain store donuts- we make our hand cut donuts with love!


Show your family, friends, and co-workers that you care enough to bring the very best. Our donuts are always fresh and they don't leave the unpleasant greasy aftertaste that you find in many mass produced donuts.

Donuts are supposed to be flavorful and are meant to delight your palate. If the donuts you buy now leave you feeling dissatisfied- it's time to see what a real donut should taste like. At Paula's we are always happy to serve you with the finest donuts in Buffalo.
