My son and I stopped in on our way back from a morning doctors appointment to get a couple donuts. The outside is a bit outdated and that continued on into the inside as well.

Because we owned/operated restaurant business more than 30 years before, we have enjoyed eat outside around since we moved to Shakopee area on 1999. Although our daugher does not like the dirty celling in dinning room, we enjoyed Donut Connection more than once a week because the preowner (a old nice lady) make you are so welcomed.

So I love cake donuts, but if you like raised or fancies, you'll also love Donut Connection! We've tried many different donut places and keep coming back to Shako for these tasty ones. It's not a very new or updated place but it's always busy with people eating in and enjoying the newspaper and a cup of coffee. The staff... More

We have gone in a few times for a treat in the morning, and have not been disappointed by the doughnuts ever. :) Coffee is just regular drop coffee, nothing fancy, but the taste is good. Overall very good!

Our family loves this place. The building is old on the inside and out, but they do a good job keeping it clean. The donuts are great, and reasonable. They have plenty of parking and the staff is very friendly. Will go back as long as our waistline let us.

Good donuts and cheap. Very classic donut shop...they don't make these like they use to. I usually do the drive-thru. They could use some remodeling inside.

What is there to say? If your kids think donuts are only found in convenience stores, then take them here for a special treat. It's like a timewarp into 1970 & that's what I like about it. Enjoy
