I like Boyden's doughnuts better than that Indy icon, Long's: Boyden's doughnuts are lighter and fluffier. All the other bakery items I've had there are the same way, light and tasty. Their service is quck and cheerful.

If you want to impress your coworkers by bringing in donuts, then come here. The cake donuts are delicious. Good assortment of donuts. Unlike another pouular hometown donut shop this place accepts plastic payment. Friendly staff makes it a pleasant visit.
