Not your super market doughnuts. Real doughnuts. Actually made on the premises. All the other franchises have frozen doughnuts heated up. The angel cream is stuffed in there. Once I had to actually take out some of it with a spoon. So fresh and nice...More

When you finally give in to those urges and want to just enjoy a donut, don't settle for anything other that a Paula's Donut. Dream BIG and you won't be disappointed.

Tastiest treat you will find in all of Buffalo. Coffee is as good as it gets as well. Cream filled are out of this world. I could not pick a favorite.

It was national donut day and we were passing through Buffalo. Looked up the best donut shop in Buffalo and found Paula's. Oh my those are some awesome donuts that put Dunkin to shame. Per companions report, the bagel sandwich was good too.

Not sure-but I think it would be hard for them to keep as fresh as they are at the shop!

I think Paula's is wonderful. But it is NOT a restaurant. It is a great donut shop. So why is TripAdvisor giving it a #5 ranking in Buffalo? It is because somebody is gaming the review system. Not good.

Established in 1996, Paula's Donuts(R) is a family owned and operated business. Our hand cut donuts are baked fresh daily on the premises, the old fashioned way.

Voted #1 Donuts by Buffalo Spree. Paula's has over 30 varieties of donuts as well as pastries, muffins, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, carrot cake, coffee, cappuccino, tea, hot chocolate, and cold beverages.


Excellence is not achieved by cutting corners. Using only the finest quality ingredients, we go the extra mile to bring you the very best in donut deliciousness.

Every Paula's donut has a very special ingredient, something you won't find in any of the big chain store donuts- we make our hand cut donuts with love!


Show your family, friends, and co-workers that you care enough to bring the very best. Our donuts are always fresh and they don't leave the unpleasant greasy aftertaste that you find in many mass produced donuts.

Donuts are supposed to be flavorful and are meant to delight your palate. If the donuts you buy now leave you feeling dissatisfied- it's time to see what a real donut should taste like. At Paula's we are always happy to serve you with the finest donuts in Buffalo.
