They make the best. Be prepared to spend some time as they are always busy, but it is well worth it.

Congdon’s has the best donuts in New England! Believe me they are worth the drive and worth the wait in line. I grew up eating these donuts and they are still worth the trip and the calories.

I can't get enough of their scones. They are so moist and full of berries. Donuts and other pastries are good too but for me, it's the scones. The breakfast sandwiches are yummy too.

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
