Driving by and a bit hungry... I bought the apple bear claw. Delicious, melt in your mouth cinnamon apples enveloped in raised yeast dough and blanketed in glaze. About 9" wide! Seating was not adequate for the crowd, but the deliciousness made the standing up...More

This place is always on my list of stops when I visit New Orleans. Look for a blue building on Canal Street. The donuts are cheap...a dozen donuts is about $9.00. There’s a few tables inside to enjoy your donut. There’s not much parking outside...More

This is our favorite donut shop in the city. The donuts are classic, not overtly fancy, delicious and well priced. The coffee is simple and great! If you like traditional donuts and coffee, this is your place!

I personally believe there are better donut and pastries in the city. But this place has proven to be a local favorite. Its worth a try, just not somewhere I would go unless I had no other choice due to location or time constraints.

Hidden little gem! looking for donuts in New Orleans didn't find anything other than the Beignets. Been there done that. overrated to me personally. Stumbled upon Blue Dot Donut's online tried them on 07/16/11 what a find. They have a Long John that has Maple glaze on top and Bacon!!!!!!!!!!!! wow talk about GR8!!!!!!!! it was really good sweet and salty the donut itself was warm and soft I highly recommend. A large variety of donuts and followed up my exit of New Orleans with one more stop at Blue Dot Donut's for the road. You gotta try it for yourself. Venture out of the French Quarter and find hidden treasures its worth the journey.
