the donuts were pre-made and pre-decorated so not as fresh as someplace like Fractured Prune who makes the donuts as you order. The staff were nice and the place was clean.

We saw the sign and needed coffee and a little breakfast, so we entered. Other pastries were in the case; however, when another customer ordered donuts, we understood that this was different. Behind the workstation glass, magic happened. There was a tray of fresh cooked donuts and pails of icings, nuts, sprinkles and toppings. The donut maker began to fill... More

Visiting lewes and had a donut at dormans dockside,it was so good we decided to go to their main location. As soon as we walked in we smelled the yummy smells of donuts and baked goods.

Fractured Prune wishes they were this good. Their donuts are large and full of flavor with additional toppings to accentuate the experience.

Good donuts and crumb cake! Baby Ruth was the favorite in our group of 10! Sort of in a weird area...but was worth the drive!

Nice donut shop with piping hot coffee. They have just about any kind of pastry, too. However, it is truly the donuts that shine here. Name your topping, and they will do it for you and serve it warm! Now, that's service! Soo good.

The expectation presented from this establishment is unique individualized donuts. To further this expectation it would be important to hide the Duncan Hines chocolate frosting used to ice the donuts. Expensive price point for grocery store toppings. While my children did eat them both said they would not want to get them again.

Loved the donuts - cooked fresh, and had a lot of specialty donuts to choose from. Ordered a bunch and split them up so everyone could try the different kinds - there wasn't a bad donut in the group!

Very unique donut shoppe. You wait while your donuts are cooked. They have every kind imaginable. I found the donuts to be very good, but perhaps a little small, but what else is new in today's economy. I would highly recommend stopping by.
