A very worthy doughnut shop in a quaint old house. The smell of baked goods and coffee in the morning hit you at the door. Before you sits a display case filled with delightful treats it's hard to choose. Doughnuts, rolls, and well I was in a hurry so Chocolate cake doughnut and a sour cream works! Bother were delicious... More

Hidden off of Route 34 in Oswego is another find!! They open early -- but also close early! Their donuts and pastries are fresh and tender. The fillings are flavorful. The customer service is top-notch! Now days, it is hard to find a good "mom" donut shoppe!! This is one of the rare finds!!

I go here quite frequently and the service and product are both off the charts! The quality of the donuts themselves is awesome. They also offer cookies, and other options as well. Their coffee cakes are a family favorite!

This little bakery is a hidden gem. Everything is wonderful , couldn't be more fresh . They were out of what I wanted and went in the back to ice a donut for me .

Donuts like they used to be. Good old fashion flavor. Freshly made and seasonal specialties. I love the quaint little shop. Nice convenient location in he downtown area. I stop there when I go to the post office since it is right across the street.

My Lil Sister's has the best donuts in the area. These are not mass produced, but made daily on the premise. If your grandma made donuts they would taste like these. I am sure these are the donuts Homer Simpson is thinking of when he says, "Mmmmmm donuts.." The staff is great and selection of baked creations ranges from donuts... More
