The place is very busy, but very cool. The donuts are very fresh and everything is made right there. It's a great atmosphere.

I live in the town and it is very neat that a group of policemen saved our local historic bakery. Donuts are very good. Not the best I've ever had in my life but very good with a nice variety including their famous "squealer" topped...More

Cops and Doughnuts have by far the best donuts in Michigan. I will continue to test that statement via any doughnut shop that I come across, but in 68 years theirs are the best. There are a large variety of doughnuts but none are marked...More

There is a doughnut shop and bakery in Clare, Michigan that has been in constant operation since 1896. This foundation business was within weeks of closing when the members of the Clare Police Department came to the rescue. All of them. That's right, all nine members of the local police department banded together to save this historic business.Dubbed "Cops and Doughnuts," the business boasts handmade confections of all types. Join us for a warm fresh doughnut and a steaming cup of Cops Coffee while you enjoy the police decor and friendly, and very safe, atmosphere. Come and see the new store in Clare that everyone is talking about.Since opening as Cops & Doughnuts our business has expanded in to other adjoining store fronts allowing us to ad the "Cop Shop" our apparel and souvenir shop. And the "Traffic Stop Diner" featuring many American Diner favorites.
