We stopped in for breakfast. The restaurant is usually crowded, but they do a pretty good job getting people through in decent time. Our server was excellent and the food is very good. We took home delicious doughnuts and bagels as well. It's a far ride for us to visit, but worth it!

Amazing doughnuts and a wide selection. They also have breads, whoopie pies and other desserts. The restaurant is very good. It is so popular that they are adding a separate entrance to the restaurant section. The lines are so long in the morning that people just going in to get doughnuts have a tough time getting through the crowd. If... More

We finished off our east coast trip grabbing breakfast here. Super friendly waitress and quick service on our meal. Again, way too large of portions.

In season, be ready for a line... but it's worth it. (and every place around there has a line anyway, right?) The apple fritters are a must!
