Dan's is off the beaten path, but worth taking the time to find them. They offer a nice variety of warm tasty donuts, and if you want to be the first in line, try their unusual but fun midnight hours.

Get there before 7 am or you will miss out on some super delicious donuts. I usually prefer filled donuts but even the yeast donuts are fantastic. But if you want ecstasy, eat one of their apple fritters.

I love cinnamon rolls, but most of the ones.from there don't get cooked in the center, nearly raw, if I am going to eat like that don't fry them, oh wait..that is the problem. Other donuts pretty good.

Best donuts anywhere! Worth the wait! It's a family tradition to stand in line for over an hour waiting for them to open at 1am!

They have the best donuts ever... And very friendly. Our favorite is the straw iced cream filled or the cinnamon roll donut with maple icing... Highly recommend you call in your order the night before as they're very busy place.

Dan's Variety Bakery sells the BEST donuts in the city of Kokomo, and in my opinion, the state of Indiana. A must stop if you come through Kokomo. Their yeast donuts are the best I have ever eaten. Their apple fritters are to die for. I stop by here quite often and they are my favorite donuts by far.

No words can describe these donuts. There is no one that even comes close to dans donuts. I can go into a Dunkin Donuts or any other bakery and not even care to get a donut, but these I cannot pass by!

I was in town for a funeral and I bought donuts with me from my new hometown. everyone liked them, but made it perfectly clear that nothing compared to Dan's! I have to agree, as I am originally from Kokomo. The best donuts ever!!!
