large selection of very good, not too greasy, doughnuts. Also serves lunch, mostly soup, salads and sandwiches. Good Coffee and attentive staff. Get the jelly stick if you are hungry or do not plan on eating a meal for quite awhile.

Looking to win a donut contest in your office? Stop by here and understand all that has been lost at Dunkin' Donut chains. Coffee isn't fancy, but the donuts have real character. A local favorite.

Been eating their fantastic large home-style donuts for years. Today was our first lunch visit and it won't be our last. We had the day's special corned beef sandwich.... so generously filled. Perfectly prepared. Very friendly staff. A small eatery, but fast, attentive service.
