The best donuts around! Old fashioned and great. They are fresh, crisp and just like donuts from the 50's.

If you are looking for a "little slice of heaven", then look no further than Holtman's Donut Shop. On route 28 in Loveland Ohio sits a very non descript little shop that if you were not looking for it, you would miss it..My advice? STOP AND SHOP!

join new to the game in OTR. Little did I know that this slice of donut heaven had been outside my doorstep for years! It says Loveland, but I'd say it is more Goshen--just a little over 10 minutes from old Milford, straight out 28. I don't know what Holtman's do but these are literally the best donuts I've ever...

These donuts are spectacular - so good, all others are disappointing. The huge selection makes it difficult to choose, but we've never been disappointed. The shop in Loveland is old school and special - but caryout only.

First, let me say I don't generally like doughnuts. Too often, all you taste is sugar and have a greasy residue coating your palate after you eat one. Not so at Holtman's.

Best doughnuts EVER! Try Mapke bacon or any with cream cheese frosting! OTR has a location now too but closes early. Be prepared for them to run out! Best local is Loveland

Best donuts I have ever had! Melt in your mouth. Loved the carmel bacon topped donuts. But can't go wrong with any choice. This was OTR location. Love to watch the donuts being made.

Been going to Holtmans since I was a kid. The pumpkin is soo good but then they are all just soo yummy!!! There are no bad donuts here! We've only been to the Loveland location but my daughter lives in St. Bernard & they go to the OTR location & those are just as good!!
