Blue Dot has excellent donuts and coffee!! Not too fancy but definitely not boring. The prices are great and the donuts delicious!

I personally believe there are better donut and pastries in the city. But this place has proven to be a local favorite. Its worth a try, just not somewhere I would go unless I had no other choice due to location or time constraints.

Blink and you'll miss it on a corner in Mid-City this tiny place serves great donuts and donut holes. There are a few tables if you want to sit and have a coffee too but mainly this is to zip in and grab to go....More

My husband and I came here every morning for coffee and a donut, while we stayed in New Orleans. It was in walking distance from our hotel and we smelled it wafting down the street. I love Apple fritters and they have a good one....More

The donuts are light,not greasy,or overly sugary. They offer some unusual and delicious flavors, like maple bacon. My favorites are the apple fritter donut holes, chocolate covered, and buttermilk. Yummy !

Hidden little gem! looking for donuts in New Orleans didn't find anything other than the Beignets. Been there done that. overrated to me personally. Stumbled upon Blue Dot Donut's online tried them on 07/16/11 what a find. They have a Long John that has Maple glaze on top and Bacon!!!!!!!!!!!! wow talk about GR8!!!!!!!! it was really good sweet and salty the donut itself was warm and soft I highly recommend. A large variety of donuts and followed up my exit of New Orleans with one more stop at Blue Dot Donut's for the road. You gotta try it for yourself. Venture out of the French Quarter and find hidden treasures its worth the journey.
