Based on other reviews I was expecting subtle flavors and soft textures, light and delicate - a rewarding doughnut. What I got had the texture of microwaved bread, tough and chewey, and just wet with fat, oozing and indigestible. The flavors in the dough were dead; no hints of yeast and sugar. I tried three of these doughnuts about a year ago. Their memory is unfortunately still with me.

Dense, cakey donuts with a "burnt" aftertaste...Toppings are great but overpowered by too much donut...Other offerings like occassional fresh baked rolls, juices are the real hidden secret..

I've been here twice now, to try and give the place a fair shake. I just don't understand how this place deserves its good reputation. Yes, there are many unique, interesting flavors. But not at all worth $2.00 - $2.50 a doughnut. The "cake" of the doughnuts (I've tried three now) has a dry, stale (I don't think the doughnuts I had were actually stale, as I got my doughnuts most recently at 7am) texture. The icing/fillings are tasty enough, however.

These doughnuts are pure heaven. Exquisite. I have had them several times and they are phenominal no matter what flavor I try. I have had the orange, passion fruit, chocolate, vanilla, raspberry, almond, and a few others I can't remember but they are always fantastic. They are light and airy with a slight crunch on the outside. Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme do not even compare. Highly recommeded.

First of all the energy of the owner and people here are sublime. Secondly the donuts are out of this world. Look...some people like to eat garbage or fast food and others want quality and have a higher sense of taste. If you want something more than junk food you came to the right place.

I find the doughnuts here wonderful. Get fruit doughnuts, some coffee and enjoy.

Okay, the donuts are like Krispy Kreme's on Steriods. They are a little pricey at two bucks a pop, but with a cup of coffee you have a meal. Okay the Valhrona were good, the blueberry were good - they are donuts. If you like cake donuts forget about this place.
