This little coffee shop is sort of hidden just off McGregor Blvd between downtown and the Edison complex. Great donuts and coffee. Had to try the maple-bacon donut. It was better than I could have imagined. Prices are reasonable and everything was good.

We have traveled here several times to imbibe in their home made donuts and coffees. Have never had a bad donut here, but found coffee to be a little strong at times. Get here early if you want your pick, they go fast!

Good coffee; however, menu options on coffee were limited. Guests that do not drink coffee but accompanied their coffee friends have too few options. Frappuccino and cold flavored coffee drinks might prove beneficial. Muffins were moist and great! A return visit is probable, but more diversity is needed on the coffee menu. Clean and inviting atmosphere.

We stop here when in town visiting family. Tip for a first timer is to go to the second door to enter...some locals can express annoyance if you're coming what is the unmarked exit. ;) Raspberry, glazed and orange crunch donuts for my wife and I today. Perfection. Coffee is great too!

This place must be good, considering we are willing to make the 20 minute drive just for coffee and donuts! The donuts are so fresh and never disappoint. We've tried their classic glazed, twists, the toffee one, and a few others, and they've all been delicious. The coffee is also great, a nice change from chained coffee places. I've never... More

A wonderful place to take family for a breakfast who are visiting from out of town. Fresh pastries and excellent coffee. Nice atmosphere and always popular with locals. Must see!

This place is off the beaten path - we never would have seen or heard of it if our sister who works in the area had not told us. We went around 9 on a weekday thinking it would be less busy. We were lucky to get the last parking spot and there was a line inside to order although... More

I had just returned from a donut and pastry tour of the Pacific Northwest (think Seattle's Top Pot and Portland's Blue Star) when I heard about this place in my own backyard. I took my mom along and we arrived around noon. They had already sold out of a bunch of varieties, so I recommend going early for the best... More

The coffee and dounuts were very good. Both were very fresh. You have to get there early, because it does get crowded.

This is a very simple place to review, Everything is Fantastic!! The donuts are fresh and very good, the coffee hot and everything is reasonably priced unlike some of the chains which think their coffee is worth twice as much as it is!! If you want a good place for coffee and to hang out with your friends, or just... More
