These are without a doubt the best donuts I've ever eaten.....and I've been around a few years. You won't be sorry you stopped in to the little red and white checked cafe.

We were greeted by the original Spoonman playing outside the front door here. It was a wonderful experience all the way around. Doughnuts were excellent!

Saw it across from the visitor's center and museum and decided to grab some snacks for later. Looks a little run down, but obviously busy so we decided to check it out. They had a fairly large selection, and we were in and out pretty fast with four kinds of donut's

These people know how donuts are supposed to be made without having to be cutsie like their Portland competition. The downfall is their popularity and the long lines at peak times.

This is most definitely a personal opinion. I have lots of friends that love their donuts, it just isn't what I like. Cake donuts are... More

After hearing rave reviews of Joe's Donut Shop for years, we finally stopped in for our sweet tooth "fix". It is truly a little place but the cronut was perfection. My spouse had the old fashioned and declared it "just as it should be". We definitely will stop again when we visit Sandy.

The donuts here are excellent! The shop is not near us, but we stop there whenever we are driving through Sandy, Oregon. The donuts will sit for several hours in our hot car, so we ask them to not stack them, either by putting them in a box/boxes or in separate bags (so the frosting doesn't melt from one donut...
