I love donuts and the best donut I have ever had is the peanut butter filled donut at Plain and Fancy. I have had it both at the shop and at their boot at the Bloomsburg Fair. This place has great local character, they are also well known for a pre-lent treat known as fausnachts, a potato flour donut. People... More

Stop by occasionally when we're in the mood for a donut. They're made daily and always fresh and delicious, but get here early if you want a specific type, as they run out fairly quickly.

The variety and freshness of these donuts are amazing. Nothing like eating a donut that you know was just made earlier that morning. They are not thick donuts like the chain brands but burst with flavor.

Plain & Fancy is by far one of the best bakeries in the area. From donuts to Long John's to specialized cakes and almost anything in between this is the place to visit.

This is a wonderful pastry shop, we enjoy all the items we have tried so far. Their pastry are made fresh daily at the shop. Enjoy a donut today and stop on by.

This place has been around as long as I can remember. They have the best donuts and very reasonable prices. They not only sell at their store but at many of the local farmers markets. In this part of the country we celebrate fasnacht day on Fat Tuesday and this place makes exceptional fasnachts.

Plain & Fancy has been around forever. Great donuts and excellent prices keep customers coming back. The only real problem here is the shop itself. The location is somewhat random to begin with, but when you walk inside, you come across a poorly lit, overly outdated, somewhat gross place. Come for the donuts, but don't anticipate a nice location to... More
