They are all good, but our favorites include the sour cream, Boston cream, and the French Cruller...and anything with their fabulous chocolate frosting. Call ahead if you want to be sure they'll have your favorites!

The donuts are fresh and the people that run it are friendly. Best donuts around. The filled donuts have more filling than the other donut shops.

This may not be the fanciest place around, but this guy makes really good donuts and sells tem at a reasonable price. I highly recommend it.

Carlson's Donuts is a local icon for donuts! They are donuts that locals love to buy and eat. In the morning on the way to work, a couple of dozen Carlson's donuts will be a hit at the office.

This is our preferred place to get donuts. We've been buying them here for years and expect to continue to do it for many more years.

GREAT glazed donuts. Also a big fan of the apple fritters and bavarian cremes. Make sure you get there early, as I've shown up at 9am on Sunday and they were sold out of my favorites.

"Never getting donuts from Dunkin' Donuts again" is what my husband said this morning. He had been driving past it for so long on his way to work and wanted to try it this morning. So glad we did!
