By far they have the best donuts in the area. Everything is very fresh and their prices are very reasonable

The donuts are great. The people behind the counter before 7 am HATE their job, HATE their customers and wish we would all die so they could eat the donuts themselves, which are awesome.

I asked for an unadorned donut and was handed two that appeared to have no sugary coatings. Later, I pulled one out of the bag to have with my coffee. What I found in my... More

Lots of locals came in, like we did, for fresh made breakfast - real eggs, just cooked biscuits, crispy bacon - and the amazing donuts. Don't be put off by plain exterior, or sharing a lot with a gas station - this is a real find!

I visited this bakery yesterday, and thought it was ok. The doughnuts were good, but there's a better place in Monticello to get doughnuts. Give both a try...and see which you like better. Also, Amons does have a little lunch counter with breakfast and lunch sandwiches if that's what you're looking for.

Doughnuts where heavy with oil, you could have squeezed it out. I was there 2 weeks before that, same way. A year ago they was excellent. I don't know what has happened.
