Always visit whenever I am in town. Expect a line, even at 11:00 a.m. The donuts are the best in town - I can only eat one or one and a half, but they are moist and great taste. The staff know their regular customers but are as friendly to new faces. Old school business model that works.

Donuts are always fresh and so delicious. Lexington is fortunate to have such a great local donut shop.

If you are a fan of yeast style donuts, this place has the very best. But be sure to get there early in the morning because they are so popular that the line can be out the door! But when you finally get them they are sure to be fresh, hot, just a tad doughy, and absolutely delicious.

If my wife is ever missing early on a morning, I just assume that great donuts are coming from Spaldings.

Having worked in a donut shop for a few years I feel that I have the qualifications to judge a great donut. Spalding's is as good at it gets! The regular glazed are the stars of the show, they have the perfect combination of what a donut should be; not too sweet and light or too heavy and doughy. There... More

I was with a few friends before church around 10ish. It was very busy, but I believe it was worth the wait. I got the cream filled donut and the blueberry cake donut. The cream filled donut was different than the typical cream filled donuts from like Krispy Kreme. The blueberry cake donut was by far my favorite. I was... More

Busy, busy place! Sometimes there is a line out the door. (Bonus, if you have to wait outside, they process Jif peanut butter across the street and it smells divine.) My favorite treats are the warm, glazed donuts, but a close second would be the cinnamon twist. They also make cakes and cupcakes.

If you are in the mood fro a great glazed or chocolate glazed donut, then stop by here. They are closed on Mon and Tues and only open from 630am to 1230pm so get there early. The cakes and pecan Danish are also my favorites.

These are some of the best doughnuts I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. You need to get there early because they usually sell out before noon. There is usually a line... And the staff are in no hurry to rush you in and out as they enjoy talking with each of their customers... But do not be in... More
