Wowww! Love the Sausage cheese rolls. Always a hit for meetings. Doughnuts are made fresh and toppings added when ordered. Great service

This place has the most amazing donuts. They fill the jelly filled ones only AFTER you order them. Not before. Don't leave there without getting the Cheese Hotdog. They are also majestic.

This evil place has added quite a few pounds to me over the years. From plain old glazed to the fanciest donuts, this place beats any Dunkin or Krispy Kreme. The family that owns it is always very friendly.

Doughnuts made fresh daily are light and fluffy (Well for a doughnut) Not dripping with ooey gooey sugar. Great selection! Sausage Rolls are the best - so fresh and tasty.

Donut Palace always has a wide variety of great and fresh donuts. It's hard to pick a favorite. But if you like good glazed (non-cake style) donuts, then you'll enjoy these.

I love these mom and pop businesses, I try to support them whenever I can. It is not a fancy pants establishment, it's a good donut at a fair price in a clean store. I hope they become super successful and compete with the national brands.

You can see them being made in the room behind the counter. Family owned and operated. Friendly staff. Better quality than the chain restaurants. Get their early. They only make a limited batch each day!

Family owned- Not very friendly, more like a Grab your stuff and please move out. Very Pricey for what you are getting and limited selection. The Jelly Filled Donuts are filled to-Order so, they are pretty fresh, but the amount you get is a hit and missed depending on who is filling them for you- Not a standard amount. Donut... More
