Excellent Donuts! The vanilla creme filled donut was the best I've ever had. The overall quality, flavor selection and presentation is amazing. But be warned, the donut holes were a bit dry and just OK and the fresh squeezed orange juice was a bit watery. They are very proud of their donuts and have priced them accordingly. If they brought them down to the $2 and under range, I'd give them 5 stars. That said, I'll be back, just not as often as I'd like to go. When a family of 5 has to drop close to $20 for just 1 donut a piece, it puts it out of range for a regular destination. I WILL be back to try their more reasonably priced hamburgers and chicken sandwich someday. They looked delicious.

I've had donuts from 6 other local places in Birmingham and these are THE BEST I've had yet. They're quite large yeast donuts, very fluffy and airy yet they still feel substantial with each bite and not too greasy. It's fun to watch the donuts get glazed, sometimes one at a time for specialty flavors, and you can tell they handle each individual donut with care. The place is clean and has several tables, as well as very nice bathrooms. They have some other menu options such as breakfast sandwiches and different drinks. Staff was friendly and helpful. I'll definitely be going back when the need for a donut strikes!

There wasn't any reason why they just didn't make some of the items on their menu today. I had a lemon curd donut. it was pretty basic and not very tart. I didn't even eat the whole thing. And get ready to get everything covered in granulated sugar.
