Quite expensive for the specialty donuts. The previous owner John Dough was a much better baker but he had to retire. It was a much better value for your money at that time also. Sad to say it but it was better back in the day and I don't go there as often as I used to.

New ownership took over Daylight Donuts some time over the past year and the changes that have occurred are all for the better. First of all. I finally have an old-fashioned donut done right! They have also added some new delicious donuts such as a peppermint chocolate and cereal covered donuts. They also have a discount box that you can... More

It's definitely your home town donut shop. Always somebody in there to chat with or at least pass the time of day. Owners are on task and extremely friendly. Product is as good as you will find.

Great selection of donuts (when you get there early) that are always fresh. I was surprised to see they have other menu items besides donuts. I highly recommend their biscuits and gravy; they are the best in town!!!

You can't go wrong with a daylight donut. The twist is my favorite with a little cinnamon spice. Open in the afternoon with bargain boxes.

My husband and I rarely agree on breakfast food and we never order the same food unless we come here. They have the best biscuits and gravy I think either one of us have ever had.

Arrive early for the best selection. The place is older, and looks run down. But the donuts are awesome. Staff is always friendly.

I get friendly service and delicious donuts from this locally owned and operated shop literally every Friday and Saturday night. The only thing that can compete with their delicious donuts is their impeccable service. Whether you're going in to simply eat a glazed donut or going all out and purchasing "just one more" chocolate-covered bow tie and their infamous baked... More
