Apparently, Lee's has been in the Market for years but I've been coming and going by the wrong door because I totally missed this place on prior visits. No more will I! Had the most magical coconut donut here last week. It was SO good that in fact I can't remember ever eating a better donut. The ethereally tender inside... More

Tried Lee's donuts for the first time yesterday. I'm not a huge donut fan, but theirs are so yummy! The raspberry jelly donut is everything it should be - fluffy, soft, covered in crunchy sugar, with the perfect amount of jelly. Their cake style donuts are moist and delicious too.

I have dropped into this donut shop two or three times now and they have always provided the same level of quality.

We went there based on all the reviews. We tried the honey dipped, which is their most popular donut. It's light and airy, not greasy and simply delicious. Lee's is located inside the Granville Market. They accept Canadian dollars as well as US dollars, but do not take credit cards.

The driver on the way to the Capilano bridge was raving about these donuts so I had to give them a try when I visited the market. They all looked delicious but I only tried the coconut covered one. It was good. Lineups were pretty steady.

Very good donuts worth the stop if you are at the market. We had the maple ring and butter crunch both were delicious. FYI they only take cash or local debt.

Jest the smell is irresistible. If you are going to spoil yourself with junk food, start here for the freshest and tastiest Doughnuts.

Recommended by a friend - good simple donuts. I only tried one donut but I can say that the Cinnamon donut was great!
