Carlson's is the place for donuts! Highly recommend the potato donut. Once here you will never go back to DD!

A coworker told me of these donuts, so I bought a dozen and brought them to work. They were delicious. You have to get there early because they go quickly!

Longstanding favorite, with the best glazed (honey dipped) doughnuts ever. Made fresh every day and they sell out early. I rarely eat doughnuts with the exception of Carlson's which far exceed the other chain bakeries

Carlson's donuts are made fresh each day and are delicious. The family that run the shop are nice and friendly. Just remember it is cash only, no credit or debit taken. I believe this is to keep their cost down. When I walk into work...More

If you are up early and love FRESH donuts, this is the place to go! The earlier u get there the larger the selection. Really good and love supporting small local businesses that are better than chains.

LIke an old fashioned bakery. You need to be there early in the morning to get a good selection since they sell out early. Donuts made fresh every morning.

They are all good, but our favorites include the sour cream, Boston cream, and the French Cruller...and anything with their fabulous chocolate frosting. Call ahead if you want to be sure they'll have your favorites!

The donuts are fresh and the people that run it are friendly. Best donuts around. The filled donuts have more filling than the other donut shops.
