Donuts are twice as big and softer and tastier than Tim Horton's donuts. Coffee ain't bad, either. Nicely done! Great place to stop for a break during busy day.

One of the best places to get donuts. You get your money's worth. They're not stingy with the fillings. When you eat one, you won't be disappointed. I usually get 1-2 dozen when I go back home for my grandchildren.

Paula's doughnuts are fantastic. The variety, size, and overflowing filling is worth the $12.00 a dozen.

Excellence is not achieved by cutting corners. Using only the finest quality ingredients, we go the extra mile to bring you the very best in donut deliciousness.

Every Paula's donut has a very special ingredient, something you won't find in any of the big chain store donuts- we make our hand cut donuts with love!


Show your family, friends, and co-workers that you care enough to bring the very best. Our donuts are always fresh and they don't leave the unpleasant greasy aftertaste that you find in many mass produced donuts.

Donuts are supposed to be flavorful and are meant to delight your palate. If the donuts you buy now leave you feeling dissatisfied- it's time to see what a real donut should taste like. At Paula's we are always happy to serve you with the finest donuts in Buffalo.
