These are really good donuts......locals are always there on Sunday mornings....If they weren't fattening, I would go there every morning.

Eller's has many different varieties of donuts to satisfy anybody's tastes. Everything is fresh the counter is and seating area is clean The service is top notch, quick and efficient. After 11 am they also serve Thai curries and pad thai, I have not tried any of the curries yet but plan to on my next visit!
