Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Loved this coffee shop! Coffee & donuts were superb & customer service was top notch! Wished I could’ve gone twice 😊

This donut place was walking distance from the AirBnB we stayed at in Lexington and we visited several times over our weeklong stay. They had great coffee choices and their donuts were really fun. I got a lovely decorated Shark Week filled donut that had...a beach scene and a gummy shark on it. And I got a few other offerings over the next few days. Staff was friendly, prices were a little high, but we really enjoyed everything we tried here. There was always a line but it was worth the wait.More

very good coffee and doughnuts.....nice building location and decor, friendly service, fun flavors to try.....the only drawback is the sometimes pretentious clientele but they have no control over that

Coffee is delicious and the donuts are fresh and fun flavors. My Vegan friend loves them too , they offer a daily special . And the Owl graphic is frame worthy.

They are priced a little higher than most--but are really good! Unusual flavors and menu changes often.

Moved to Limestone & Loudon. The shop was cute. We had the lemon, sugar, and Funfetti. The lemon was a bit sweet for me, but I like how the lemon was in the glaze to give it a stronger taste. The cinnamon sugar was great....It reminded me of my mom’s. The coffee was good, nothing to have twice. I paid about $20 for 5 donuts and 2 coffees. There are washrooms in the building attached. This is a fun find.More

Super cute place! The donuts are delicious! I love the funkfetti donut but seriously they’re all good. Great texture and taste. 🍩 Also: You can order online and do curbside pickup!

Always stop here on trips to Lexington. Homemade donuts that are out of this world and fantastic fresh coffee. You haven't had donuts till you eat here

Usually when I write a review it is based on one or two visits. In this case I have visited NLCD over 1200 times. Before I moved away from Lexington this was my go to place for morning coffee and donut! The donuts and coffee...are always top notch. All donuts are made from scratch daily. I have been back to Lexington 2 times since I moved and NLCD has been my first stop both times. A must if you are visiting Lexington. They also have a second location in Lexington in the Clay's Mill shopping center and a shop in Louisville!More

Let me just preface this review with the fact that I work in law enforcement so I know my way around a donut. I was lucky enough to stop in here before I left Lexington and sampled the regular glazed, chocolate glazed and French toast...(cake donut). Been to lots of donut shops but New Lime’s glazed was the best regular glazed donut I’ve ever had. And the cold brew coffee went perfectly with the donuts. They don’t have a full breakfast...just donuts and coffee but with donuts like what they offer, who cares about other breakfast items?!?!? Wow!More

When you bring them home. They only make about 1/2 dozen choices each morning, and two of those six are glazed and chocolate iced. But man, does the family love them all. Particularly the funfetti-ish choice. I have teenagers, and when I get a few...of those they always go first. The owners have two shops now, and they have a good thing going. I don't eat donuts, but the coffee is good, and you'll always have a good conversation when you enjoy your coffee and your mate, kid or bud is enjoying coffee and a donut. It's a win/win.More
