These donuts beat Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts. They are absolutely delicious and the owners are always very pleasant. Highly recommend.

We love Kay May donuts! The blueberry cake and apple fritters are the best donuts you will ever eat. They melt in your mouth. Only problem is they do run out.

My work companions and I stop in this place often prior to going to work in the morning. The woman who usually works the counter in the mornings is impeccable. Her demeanor never changes. She is always very polite and on point. The food is pretty good as well. I wish this place sold T-Shirts or stickers, so I could... More

Recommend over Dunkin donuts. More moist and fresh. I support smaller business over big chains. Recommend you give them a try.

K-May Donuts have some of the best donuts in Athens. I really like the pumpkin donuts and the cinnamon rolls. The breakfast sandwiches are really good too, but they are not cheap.

I love Kmay but something has gone wrong with the Harvest location. No one greeted me when we entered the store. When greeted the person acted like she did not want to be there. Display case was not replenished even though many donuts were on the rack. I'll save the best for last, the donuts were not fresh! The cake... More

Staff is not friendly or helpful. I did not like the donuts they were a little hard. I will not stop by there again. Just my own opinion.

K-May donuts is easily accessed off hwy-72. The donuts are delicious and not greasy-just very enjoyable. Other items we have had there are equally yummy.

Okay, I have been to several area doughnut shops thru the years and I have learned that not all doughnut shoppers are equal -- not even those with the same "brand name". The Athens location for K-May Doughnuts is outstanding!! Clean, delicious and run by a great family! They are a great community minded business that serves its customers well.... More
