They make everything from in the store in early morning, they are so tasty. Go when they open! People who works there are very friendly, I so love their glazed and fritters and blueberry donuts, not to mention donuts holes. Soo good!

It's so nice to have donuts like the old-fashioned mom-and-pop ones instead of the mass produced ones that seem to have taken over. At Daylight, the donuts are individually filled with the requested flavor just prior to purchase. The people at the counter in Johnson...More

I love me some cake donuts. The selection isn't like DD but had everything we liked. I got a $1.99 Hawaiian Fritter (never had before) that has pineapple, coconut and pecans and was so moist, good and so large I couldn't finish it. The folks...More
