Good variety of fresh doughnuts. We loved being able to sit outside and enjoy our doughnuts and coffee at a picnic table.

Not a huge donut fan but the ones you get here are like the ones my dad used to get 50 years ago when the only place to get donuts was from a bakery. Huge and substantial. Their jelly donuts were so good.

We do not have any 'Dairy Free' Doughnuts...all of our doughnuts are made with milk, eggs and dairy whey. Thanks for inquiring! Congdon's Family Restaurant & Bakery
