There’s not much to the atmosphere but there is a fantastic choice of donuts and baked good. There are a couple tables for sitting and relaxing. The donuts have a great reputation. People order them by the dozen and come pick them up.

They literally open the back door in the late evening while baking for the next day- warm apple fritters were mouthwatering, we could not get home to pair with ice cream as we ate the whole thing immediately.
