I visited Anna's over the weekend recently. I have been here many times before, however, this is my first review. Arrive early, because if you arrive after 9 a.m., there is a good chance that they will be out of their most popular varieties. Family owned (Greek, I believe) and operated. This place has the best doughnuts anywhere in the... More

This is not a trendy or pretentious donut shop -- no bacon or cronuts here. Just delicious, hand-made, old school donuts served from behind a small counter. Kind of like stepping back in time to the 60s. Regulars line the diner-style bar and I believe you can get breakfast sandwiches and other breakfast items, but I've only ever been for... More

Love this place. Found out its family owned and the donuts are hand made. Coffee is top notch and they remember your name/face. Pretty cool

Freshly made, delicious, light & airy. Old school doughnut perfection. No crazy concoctions here. Get there early, they often sell out.

I grew up in West Roxbury and remember going to Anna's Donuts on Sundays after church. Was back home visiting and brought my kids in for a donut. It was exactly the same as I remember it. I love how the outside still looks the same and the inside as well. Its clean and neat, but not new. The donuts... More

An amazing variety of donuts. Nice place to buy yourself a great breakfast with coffee and egg and bacon sandwich. Also, try the honey donuts!!!

Warm, hand cut donuts....what more could you ask for :-) Small, unassuming little hole in the wall, but the donuts are worth the hassle of finding a place to park.

So much better than dunkin donuts. Go here instead. Only open in the morning hours so get there early. The doughnuts are not as thick as normal doughnuts and are so much lighter and more delicious. The yeast-raise glazed are light and melty and the cinn-sugar coated cake are my fav. The chocolate frosting is chocolaty and can be overpowering,... More
