What separates Paula's from others is the size of her donuts as well as the taste. With her filled donuts, you actually get plenty of filling with every bite. Non-filled donuts like peanut stick or glazed cruller are huge. When you pick up the box of donuts from Paula's, you know you got your money's worth!

Old school donut shop. Looks unassuming from the outside and feels pretty old school. HOWEVER it's super delish!!!! Peanut logs as i've been told are the same from when the parents were kids.. Needless to say they are huge and ohh so yummy! Definitely try these and go super early if you want to get donuts. They sell out pretty... More

The donuts are obviously large and tasty but if you're going in for coffee and a donut you'll be disappointed in the coffee. Would like to see a bit more emphasis on providing a quality coffee seeing as most people I see sitting inside are drinking coffee. Thanks.

The donuts at Paula's are the most amazing donuts! My favorite is the coconut ones. You can share the one donut because they are big enough for two.

these by far have to be some of the best donuts on the planet. Soft fluffy oozy deliciousness. And don't miss out on the glazed donut the size of a hubcap. the only problem we had with Paula's donuts was deciding which of the confectionery delights to eat first and which to take home. A dozen just did not seam... More

This place is GREAT!! I don't leave many five star reviews, as I feel most places can always improve something...but not this one! The people there could not be more friendly or helpful. If you call in advance they will make sure you have just about any kind of doughnuts you want! And their selection is HUGH!! As are their... More

We get Paula's Donuts all the time and bring them back home to Canada. This time I went in to get them, and I couldn't believe how busy it was at 9AM. There are so many different types of donuts and fritters, and they are a decent price. The staff was great and friendly, and that's what you want when... More

Everything is delicious and perfect as it supposed to taste... Even the coffee is pairs perfect with whichever dessert you choose. My favorite is the s'mores donut but the sizes and flavors please every tastebud out there.

Amazing selection of doughnuts. Always fresh and delicious. You just have to try them for yourself, words just don't justify on how good they are.

You can't get more bang for your buck than a Paula's donut. Better than many restaurant desserts costing five times more! Try the strawberry & cream but the apple cinnamon is the real sleeper donut. If you don't see it just ask, they will make it for you. The fillings are not only delicious, they're overloaded! I'm getting hungry for... More
