I absolutely love donuts and there is none other than my hometown Mary Lou Donut shop. We currently live in Tennessee and when we return to Lafayette we HAVE to make a trip to Mary Lou

Mary Lou’s has always had great donuts but had not always been consistent in quality. This last visit, at a peak time, proved that they had plenty of donuts available and prepared to thief standards. They also have a donut truck.

We stopped for a treat on a dreary winter day. This was our first stop since their remodel, but you’ll find the A-frame still intact, a little brighter with white paint inside. There’s a new retro logo on the sign and a green/pink color scheme....More

Best donut anywhere! Fresh, great selection, friendly staff. My favorite is the chocolate iced, creme filled. A close second is the glazed donut. They have a great selection for everyone. Coff is wonderful, also.

Everything is good and always fresh bc they sellout daily. The iced cut outs are one of my favorites along with the apple 🍎 fritters. My daughter insists on going to Mary Lou’s EVERYTIME she comes home from Illinois

Periodically I'll stop by Marylou's for a treat. While their doughnuts and cupcakes are very good I always get an Apple Fritters. It's a special treat and especially good!

A landmark in Lafayette, this little a-frame building has donut making wizards! Everything is excellent. My favs are the Tiger Tails and the Apple Fritters.

When the whole family is in for the weekend we need a wide variety of donuts. Mary Lou's has it all. Selection, taste, and good price.

Excellent doughnuts at a great price. Very limited parking, but if a place has a wait to get into the parking lot, it's a good sign. They do have a drive thru, and you can call in large orders. There's room for about 15 people...More

I called the shop today, September 26, 2016; they do not sell gluten-free donuts.
