Friendly service and amazing cinnamon donuts await you at this "must be at" attraction in the Adirondacks. The donuts last a long time - unless you decide to eat them all in one sitting (which you might be tempted to do). Yes, they are that awesome. The coffee is also quite good and the price is reasonable.

Donuts must be a thing in the Adirondacks: I was on the lookout for the best; and we were very satisfied with the two types of donuts they sell. I bought a dozen fresh: 6 plain and 6 cinnamon sugar cake donuts placed in a bag, seperated by type, purchased in the morning for breakfast. Just right, not to airy... More

Love the plain donuts fresh in the morning with a cup of coffee. You must come here. You think you need a cream filled one...nope simple, tasty, you can't eat just one.

When the "open" flag is flying, we turn on the blinker. This is a "must" stop for anyone travelling nearby. Do not miss it. You walk up to a window and the smell of donuts is mouth-watering! Two choices -- cinnamon sugar or plain -- get some of each! Great coffee. Don't be surprised if there is a line. This... More

There is something to be said for good old fashioned home made donuts - and these are just special that way. Not the light, airy ones that come from the chain shops, these are hearty and with great coatings. My favorite is the cinnamon. A must stop if ever in the area.

The Donut Shop is nestled in the woods between Old Forge and Inlet...it's very much worth the drive! The atmosphere combined with the smells of fresh made donuts and coffee make for a perfect setting. Once you bite into one of the donuts, you'll be forever hooked! They are Amazing! We go every year, usually more than once...keep up the... More

Always enjoy stopping at the Donut Shop! They have two choices of donuts, cinnamon sugar or plain. Both are great, but I prefer the cinnamon. Good prices. They only take cash.

This wonderful little place has been here for many many years. They honestly have the best donuts we have ever eaten. We come here every time we are in the Adirondacks.

This is the stuff that American Road-Trip Dreams are made of. Nestled in the woods, just outside Old Forge NY, there lies a small place that cranks out the best doughnuts that your mouth may ever find. Enjoy them in the peaceful setting, among the pines - sit down on one of the perfect Adirondack boulders that line the parking... More
