It's been around for a long time, now it's up for sale. I think they'll have a hard time getting a new buyer. To many hours to make it work. Plus the asking price which will probably be high. Wish them luck.

Owners just retired. I hope someone keeps the original recipe/business going. If you get there early enough to get a WARM honey dipped donut you'll experience what heaven must be like. Their coffee is always hot and delicious. Their other donuts are also good- lemon...More

Seriously. I've lived in 4 countries. NEVER had donuts like these. Fresh, delicious, flavorful- yet not heavy or greasy. Amazing. Jelly sticks, chocolate covered...even the plain donut is spectacular.

I've been hearing about Ma's Donut shop so finally decided to pick up donuts when the kids were visiting. Selection was not great but worst of all the chocolate and vanilla icing they use is not tasty. I recommend Friendly donuts. Yummm

We popped in because my Wife's Sister recommended the place. They didn't go overboard being very Friendly to Us, and for a minute I had 1/2 a mind to leave, but stayed because of her. Turned out the Donuts were very good, coffee, as well.

They sell Ma's donuts at the West Island General store on the weekends. I have never had them before. I live north of Boston so we go to Kane's donuts. These are just as good as Kane's and that's a tough donut to live up...More
