I didn't visit this location, but I visited the one closer to our hotel in Seabrook, but they donuts are consistently great and worth the calories!

Ever time we are in Texas we eat breakfast at Shipley's. Being from up north we don't have the luxury of having kolaches to eat. There donuts are also excellent and never repeat on me. Everything is always fresh we never have a complaint about their food.

Good donuts! Only Shipleys can make them just right. But when you are treated rudely by the staff, it takes away from the breakfast. No restroom either had to go to car and open bottled water to wash glase off hand. Will never go back to this location.

Simply the best tasting donuts and collates in Texas. Get there early while they are still warm. We have never had any better in all our travels.

My wife and I are don't crazies. I stopped by about 8 pm at night and asked the lady when the donuts were made. She said this morning so I was skeptical about their quality. Omg was I wrong, they were fantastic.

Coming from NYC and having the indulgence with DD and Krispy Kreme, I would say that shipleys donuts are like and MNP shop, not well maintained. They have a lot of stores around houston but none of them are standard. I hope the management spends little more time in standardizing their stores and increasing the quality of their donuts too..

So in Portland, Oregon, where I live, folks gush about pretentious, over-priced, cleverly-flavored doughnuts. I find cayenne doughnuts extremely annoying, personally! A doughnut should be Sweet, man! Delicious, not shocking! I don't want to analyze it! Simplify, simplify. And what is more direct and honest than a glazed doughnut. Okay, maybe a cake doughnut, but I'm only addressing one thing...

Always good, fresh and consistent. From donuts to Mexican specialties it's always great! You can watch them prepare fresh items in front of your eyes. You may have to wait sometimes, but it's worth it!
