This place was highly recommended by my friends in Calgary, and decided to visit when I was in town. I was not disappointed! I tried their London Fog donut and it was utterly delicious. The only problem was that I ate it too fast and wanted more :) I can't wait to visit again next time I'm in Calgary.

Like another reviewer, I was surprised this place rated on You Gotta Eat Here, which was how we heard about it. The doughnuts are tasty enough, but for $2.75 each I was expecting them to knock my socks off, and they didn't. We tried four kinds. The maple bacon had only a paltry sprinkling of bacon on top, so you... More

Quite surprised this place landed on You Gotta Eat Here (the reason we visited). The donuts seemed original but weren't that impressive nor did it leave us wanting to hurry back here in the future. Something to try I guess but nothing to write home about.

I was watching the show 'You gotta eat here' and noticed this place. Since I am in Calgary for the holidays I figured why not try this. I thought it would be like a usual doughnut shop with some wild flavours. This was a great selection. Although, most doughnuts are just plain jane with a hint of frosting these were... More

I had heard about this place from several sources prior to travelling to Calgary and as I had some time downtown, I thought I should really check it out. My friend and I ordered a small sampling of the small size (yes doughnuts come in small and large) doughnuts to split so that we could try several different flavours. They... More

If you love doughnuts, this is the place for you. Depending on where you're staying in the city, this place can be hard to find....but once you do...it'll be the end of that! This is literally doughnut heaven. This is a must everytime we come down to Calgary. We always leave with a few dozen because we get requests to... More

Amazing choices! All fabulous! Bring these to a business meeting. Blow everyone away! 2 sizes of every flavor. Fantastic Birthday Special donuts. Showcased in a special box. How much better can it get.

Was given the tip to check this place out and definitely was disappointed. Doughnuts were excellent as well as prices. Specifically travelled into the city to check this place out which was an excellent investment in time. Definitely check it out!

We made a special trip to find the store and were not disappointed. Delicious doughnuts with the taste and texture of homemade and with clever twists. We loved the traditional jelly but the maple bacon is decadently wonderful!
