Love these donuts. They are cooked to perfection! The chocalate long John is my favorite! All the donuts are great. My husband likes the jelly filled.

Read the title, then go get one. Great donuts! I have to enter at least 100 characters so I will make sure to also mention they have great coffee and other donuts, oh AND a Maple Bacon Donut!

I use to love going there with their donuts (not much for coffee), and they were tasty and fresh. New owners have to change the ingredient that leaves a funny taste in your mouth that I don't appreciate therefore since the summer of 2016; I have stopped visiting this place. I agree that their coffee has improved drastically, but this... More

I love a good donut. And Lee's has them. Wide variety. Good quality. The cinnamon sugar are light and airy. And they have ice cream too.

I read that Lee's had great apple fritters and they did. I scored one at the bakery and one for breakfast the next morning. There was another donut that I wanted to try but they told me they were out of them. They also were out of coffee, which was disappointing. It is true I was there the last 30... More

This is our favorite donut shop and we often stop by after mass or after martial arts as a special treat for their awesome ice cream. Our kids love it and they are always, always so nice and friendly. A real treasure.

Lee Donuts has some of the best doughnuts of anyplace! They have many options, plus they have ice cream! What place could get better than that? Doughnuts and ice cream. The only thing is I wish they put their nutrition information on their website or something.

I love apple fritters, so after some research we decided to try Lee's. This place does not look like much from the outside but the inside was spacious with tables to sit at and enjoy a donut (or 2) and/or ice cream. Tim was a pleasure to talk with and very helpful even though it was after 7pm. The apple... More

Visited for the first time this morning. The kids had doughnuts, which they thoroughly enjoyed, and I had a cup of coffee. So many times local doughnut shops have bad coffee, but not here! The staff was very nice as well. We'll be back to try the Homer's ice cream.

Now carrying Homer's ice cream -- Yes, that means seasonal peach flavour!!!! The donuts are really quite good. There's a slight financial advantage to purchasing 6 or 12 at a time. retro-themed shop -- don't forget to pick up your free "I like Ike" button (while supplies last).
