Seriously, these donuts are awesome! Massive incredible cinnamon rolls, super fresh donuts. You need to get them early but you owe it to yourself to get your hands on the greatness. Super friendly people, this is the type of place that makes you love small towns like this.

This little place beats the chains by a mile. Better food and priced just right. These taste like they are made fresh here and not frozen.

We made a plan to have our breakfast from here on our last visit to Covington before our move to France. We saw the fritters (there were peach fritters, too) and couldn't resist. As we were paying we were told that a new pot of coffee would be ready in moments so we waited and had a nice chat. It... More

This is a "old School" bakery that reminds me of when I was a little girl and use to go with my Mom to get dough-nut holes. They have fresh made pastries and baked goods daily that just melt in your mouth. The staff is always welcoming and very friendly.

Peach Fritter is awesome. The donuts are great too... but I got addicted to the fritters and I blame them for the 5lbs I gained over the last month.

Donut King makes there doughnuts fresh everyday. You can tell the difference between the quality there and the Dunkin Donut up the road. Donut King beats them hands-down. I like the cinnamon twists and the pigs 'n blankets the best, but there are many varieties from which to choose. Once they sell out, they close. Very, very busy on Sunday... More

This shop is next door to my computer repair shop and my vacuum cleaner repair shop . The donuts and pastries are 1st rate and the staff are friendly. The only problem is that they sell out very quickly and are usually out of product 30 minutes before closing. The donuts and fritters are simple but really well made and... More

Donut King is always accommodating and helpful, willing to fulfill special orders for any occasion (giant glazed donuts for 10yr old's bday) Unassuming on the outside, deliciousness on the inside. Fritters are a family favorite.
