I guess I missed the hype with this place. It wasn't the best or nearly the best donut I've ever had. I would not go back but wouldn't stop people from going. The ingredients for the donuts are unique but that's about it.

The Donut Hole has the best potato donuts! They are a good size and not too sweet. We can't wait to go back!

I only had one (maple) and it was excellent. There were not lots of flavors (a good number) to choose from which is a good sign. Most were not covered with crushed cereal, or crazy designs. I take that as a good sign. The young...More

First of all I am not a huge donut fan. Which brings me to #2 I sure as hell would never wait in line for a donut. However if there is a long line that’s always a sign. So we waited. And waited. Finally got...More
