If you are looking for donuts that are very sweet and double glazed, this is your place. For me, I prefer other places for donuts, but other places usually cost twice as much. Good if you have a ton of kids or people and they like their sugar topped with sprinkles. Their bread does usually seem a day to two... More

Cannot believe how good their donut holes are. And the glazed donuts are perfection, probably the best I've ever had. Friendly and helpful service too!

We found this bakery a short drive from our visit to Miinnehaha Falls Park. Among us, we had the carrot cake, rum-soaked walnut pastry, eclair, and mini cream puffs. All were amazingly delicious! Quick, friendly service, and very reasonable prices.

Located on Minnehaha Parkway in south Minneapolis, this plain looking Bakery serves up the best donuts in Minneapolis and St. Paul, bar none. The yeasty glazed donuts melt in your mouth. The chocolate is rich and creamy. The fritters are a meal in themselves. Great way to start the day.

The apple fritters here are wonderful. Beautifully golden brown and loaded with apples. Very good with a cup of coffee.

My wife and kids love the doughnuts from here. Whenever we are nearby we try to stop in for some fresh treats. It is an old school bakery and the staff is friendly.

This is our go-to for doughnuts and other morning pastries. Absolutely the best. So good, in fact, that we ordered up a car with them and served them at a recent family wedding. Many passed up the wedding cake for a couple doughnuts!

This is a very old unremodeled bakery located in a charming south Minneapolis neighborhood. The ambiance is poor but the baked goods are fantastic! Their donuts are enormous ($2 each) but wonderful.

I was craving some quality donuts and figured I'd try one of the few places that was open at 2pm on a Monday. Glad I did! Chocolate cake donuts are perfect, crispy outside and soft inside with the classic sugary chocolate frosting. I also had a custard filled Long John covered in chocolate. That was great as well! There's a... More

They have been on that corner for what seems like forever and have a great following. We have often gotten donuts and pastries there when we were visiting friends in the area. I would certainly recommend stopping. We have never ever been disappointed in what we have gotten.
