Mustard on the veggi side of the sandwich instead of the meat side always puzzels me. Bread was really fresh and both doughnuts were amazing. I would come back for the doughnuts.

Stopped in after people said we should- glad we did! Had thought to see more of a creative selection of donuts but we tried 4 and they were very light and fluffy with a great whipped filling.

We stop here fairly often on our way through. Coffee is good, but I find the donuts are a bit dry for my taste. Over all, it's an OK place to stop.

The doughnuts are delicious! They taste like the ones I used to have as a kid. They have some modern as well as traditional flavors. Worth stopping in. The coffee is mediocre at best. Stick with just getting doughnuts!

I have driven past here a million times but we finally stopped for doughnuts. My kids were DELIGHTED. There is a HUGE selection, the doughnuts are fresh and very generous. It isn't fancy but if you are looking for doughnuts or soup and sandwich the prices are reasonable.

Thank HappyGeek75
