The only problem with this place is trying to decide ..... so many choices and all are just as good as the next one. Sandwiches are made to ordering again lots of choices. Hubby always goes for the chilli and a donut and loves it.

Doughnuts are bad for you. The sugar and the fats are just bad. We first stopped by this awful place about two years ago. Ever since, whenever we travel through this part of the world we always stop for a at least 4 doughnuts or maybe six. We figure if doughnuts are bad for you and you must eat them... More

I went to the Donut Mill as per a recommendation of a friend. I ordered a roast beef sandwich, a coffee, and an Oreo donut. It was delicious. Everything on the sandwich was noticeably fresh, the donut was to die for and they filled my travel mug with coffee as an inclusion of my combo. I'm glad I did. They... More

Offers sweet treats and/or fast, healthy food. Support the locally owned business! Best donut value is definitely the apple fritter - no chain matches its size! The service is fast and friendly. A line up should encourage you not discourage you! Had to give it a 4 / 5 because the donuts were a little on the pricy side and... More

OK the donuts are amazing! Large, fresh and delicious. Great flavors and neat flavors. They also offer sandwiches, soup and chili among other food. We go for the donuts. Best donuts in Red Deer hands down!!

This is a fun experience for people who love fresh made sandwiches to order. The food is extremely fresh and the staff are very quick and friendly. They also bake their own donuts if you are into this sort of dessert. The location is awesome right on Gasoline Alley and next door to a lovely boutique which sells top end... More

Best place in Red Deer for donuts and other quick snack foods. In my opinion much superior than Tim Hortons and better selection.

I've been to the donut mill a couple times on the trek between Edmonton and Calgary. It seems to always have a line no matter what time you go. The donuts are good but I think there hidden gem is the sandwiches! They are so good and make on fresh, thick slices of bread. Totally recommend getting a sandwich if... More

So the food is good, but the donuts - man unreal. The rolo with caramel whip cream inside, so fluffy! And the quality is always consistently good, been coming here since I was a child driving to and from Edmonton to visit relatives, worth the stop!
