Excellent Donuts that are huge in size. Most likely you have to cut them in half and share with someone else. Their claim to fame is there peanuts sticks but I happen to like glazed better. no matter what you choose you'll be satisfied.

Paula's is famous for giant, fresh donuts. It had those, and the usual greasy undertone that takes away from the taste of donuts (except maybe for Cronuts found in NYC.). These are big, fresh donuts that will please fans. The coffee, on the other hand,...More
