Great place for old fashioned donuts and sweet rolls. If you want an old fashioned place to sit and have a cup of coffee and a donut this is the place. Nothing fancy, but good old place that's been around forever!

We are fairly frequent visitors to the area and always make it a point to visit Swiss Donut for a guilty pleasure breakfast. The donuts are truly exceptional and worth seeking out if you're in the mood for a sweet treat.

I'm not a huge donut buyer, but these are some of the best. Great variety, really fresh. They had something for everyone I needed to please. If I need donuts, I go to Swiss donut, hiway 111 and Washington

My husband told me about the amazing doughnuts at Swiss Doughnut. I thought, how good can they be really?? Well, once he brought some home, I am a believer! So yummy. So good. Now if only they were calorie free :)

I have driven by this donut shop on many occasions, and finally decided to go in. While the woman ahead of me in line were discussing how good their donuts were, I ordered buttermilk and devil's food donuts, and found them tasteless, dry, and a complete disappointment.

We walked into the Swiss Donut and an Asian woman was behind the counter. The front door was wide open and it was quite chilly that day. I asked if we could shut the door. She agreed but was not happy about putting the customers needs ahead of hers. We ordered and she just set the donuts on the counter... More

The perfect place for me to stock up for a trip to LA. Apple fritters are my favorite and they rock. Everyone is pleasant, too.

Stopped there on our way to do the wine tour in Temecular. We had a little bit of everything. Love the fritter, more apple than dough. Yummy French culler. Plus the bakery lady threw in some donut holes in our bag for free:). What a nice surprised!
