Tom and his wife make the BEST donuts around. Their chocolate is outrageous. They are open until the donuts are gone so come early eat often. You will only regret it on your waistline...and then maybe not😍

Great local shop. It's a small location, so don't plan on sitting inside, but the people are friendly and the selection is good. And the doughnuts we ate were yummy.

Donut perfection. I can't remember the last time I ate donuts two days in a row, maybe never? Well this place is that good you will definitely be back sooner rather than later!
