The people and donuts are wonderful. Variety of items. But get there early if you want your favorite donut!

The restaurant is right on Main Street in an original shotgun house, so named for the narrow frontage and long length. It is very small inside but very cozy and decorated in German clocks and Christmas houses. My husband and I liked our egg and ham breakfast with hashbrowns very much with generous portions and tasty flavors. Our only disappointment... More

This is by far the best little donut shop around. The owners and staff are friendly, and the bakery items and breakfast items are fantastic.

I ordered the breakfast special which was corned beef hash with eggs. It was tasty, but average. The coffee was standard restaurant quality, and the server kept the cup filled.

Best donut I ever had. Downside is they're normally out of donuts at 10:30am when business hours are until 2:30pm. Please start making more donuts!

Friendly service. Great food. There are two locations and it best to get there early because the doughnuts go fast! The town knows and loves this place! Closed on Sundays. Great to buy large amounts of doughnuts from but you have order them the day before.

Thank CalistaKate
