“Great donuts! Awful coffee. . .”

This little doughnut shop is tucked away at the end of a strip mall off the Tamiami Trail. Well worth searching out. They bake their doughnuts fresh in the shop and they are extremely delicious. Don't order the coffee though. It's just terrible.

Tiny place with a line out the door that makes delicious donuts and apple fritters. Cash only. Old fashioned favorites at 60 cents each are twice the size of Publix donuts. Fresh and warm apple fritters with real apple are worth the 3 hours to burn them off. A few small tables to eat in with your coffee, but it is always crowded.

I like just a plain donut. They are hard to find. But they have them here. Dunkin Donuts used to have their signature big "Dunkin Donut" with the little handle on it. But they stopped making them when they automated their process and the machines could not produce them. They not only got rid of the handle but they downsized it. I like a plain donut with a nice crisp exterior. Theirs is not this way. But... they have good donuts and I will return here when in the area and need a donut.

Usually love this place. Waited over 20 minutes, which is not unusual, but the quality just wasn't there to make it worthwhile. They had no lemon filling and said they couldn't even make any lemon filled...someone behind us asked for lemon filling too! They were out if regular glazed donuts...really? We had apple cranberry specials and couldn't taste either fruit. I also had a chocolate long John with loads of filling...it just tasted like loads of sugar and not much else.

We'll return based on previous positive experiences.

The usual guy with the bandana around his head was not there....I guess the place suffers when the boss is away!

The apple fritters are so good; I suggest a small size to start. The flavors are nothing like what you'd find anywhere else. These donuts are A+ and not for dieters!
