The "HOT" sign is a landmark; a great place to meet neighbors, and the hot, fresh donuts are irresistible.

KK donuts are absolutely the best! And this store is very nice. It's a high production operation and you are almost always able to get a HOT KK donut right off the line! And with their drive-thru it's even more convenient. You can't go wrong. Enjoy 'em everyday. :-)

I come here almost every time I visit my family in the area and the donuts are never anything but hot and fresh, just as they should be. The staff is efficient as well.

The donuts roll off an assembly line here with a complex set of machines linked together to produce fresh, warm donuts in large batches. There are a number of choices in flavors and types, but the simple glazed donut is still the star of the show. Customers emerge from the front door with dozens in large boxes, off to families...

Seriously, Krispy Kreme makes the BEST doughnuts!! And the staff at this location is really kind. My kids love to watch the doughnuts being made, too.

If you are already a fan of the original Krispy Kreme donut, you know what I mean...if not, try it. The HOT button is almost always on as this is currently the only Krispy Kreme in the area. More are planned.

Love this place. The line is always long when the hot sign is on. Sometimes I wish they don't run out of doughnut holes

Who doesn't like Krispy Kreme?! They're SO delicious, and our closest Dunkin Donuts pales in comparison. I wish Krispy Kreme were closer, although my waistline is happy they're not. :) The staff at this location is generally very helpful and kind, and my kids love watching the doughnuts being made at the windows. Such a fun & sweet experience!

Yummy and hot and melt in your mouth. Sometimes I just have to stop. But I really wish they weren't quite so sweet. 2 warm donuts and cold milk. heaven.

The Krispy Kreme on Richmond Hwy is good and the same KK donuts you can get anywhere. I only give four stars rather than five for two reasons. First, the staff is not friendly and seems to be bothered when you ask a question. Second, the filled donuts are not has full of filling as other KK's I have visited.... More
