This is the tasty, tucked away local donut shop you're looking for. So glad I wandered in! It's not flashy, just good, fresh donuts. Ube donuts on the weekend are good, red velvet is really nice too.

Donuts! What more can I say? They have an excellent product here, and I always like to patronize local, family-owned business. The prices may be (very slightly) higher than the chain donut shop down the street, but they really do what they do in a great fashion.

We have been going to Gurnee Donuts forever! They make the very best donuts around.... they were missed when they were closed because of the fire and now that the kids of the original owners have opened it back up, everyone that I know that were original customers, we're all back!

I love donuts. To a detriment. These are donuts worthy of my love. And this place is way too close to my home. This place is loved by many. I have showed up many a morning hoping to get in and out and had to leave empty-handed due to a long line, as well as arriving mid to late morning... More

My understanding is that these donuts are made with butter milk. They are absolutely outrageous. We shared some with food aficionados, who said they were exceptional two days later. And our four and two year old grandsons, did not move while enjoying their treat. The lady who owns the store is a delight and if time permits is happy to... More

Tremendous comeback from a fire a couple years ago. My go to place for donuts but the Apple Fritters are big and flavorful. A Saturday morning treat are the Bacon covered Maple long Johns (mmmm). All donuts are fresh and hearty.

This family owned and operated donut shop sits in a little strip mall along Grand Avenue. Their award-winning ube donut is what brought us in (it definitely did not disappoint and is a must-try if you're there) but the red velvet and jelly donuts were also delicious and moist. We will try the other flavors next time we are in... More
