Very good donuts worth the stop if you are at the market. We had the maple ring and butter crunch both were delicious. FYI they only take cash or local debt.

Jest the smell is irresistible. If you are going to spoil yourself with junk food, start here for the freshest and tastiest Doughnuts.

Recommended by a friend - good simple donuts. I only tried one donut but I can say that the Cinnamon donut was great!

Came here twice.....took the same honey dipped donut each for the 3 of us.....crazy delicious. The texture of the donut is soft.....freshly cooked. What can I say more.....a must taste when you visit Granville Market

The opening hours are incorrect on here!! Lee's is open 7 days a week from 9am to 7pm!! The Honey Dips start coming out in small batches at 9am and the full selection is usually out by 10:30.....with hot donuts coming out through the day.

This place always has a line and it's easy to taste why! Super fresh, soft, fluffy donuts - they're highly addictive. We bought donuts in the morning and had to swing by on our way home in the afternoon for some donut holes because they just taste too good!

The woman at the bike shop was rhapsodizing about Lee's Donuts, so i was looking forward to trying them. Must have been a bad day- the taste of a donut is dependent on how long it has been out of the fryer and how many donuts went through since they last changed the oil. One or both were wrong on...

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
