Good coffee you can get most anywhere in WNY but to be able sit down and enjoy a great donut? Nowhere better. I can eat a half dozen somewhere else but I'm satisfied after two!

These are hands down the best donuts in the region. My personal favorite is the old-fashioned cinnamon. So good!

Great place for the largest, tastiest donuts around! Perfect place for a special treat. The cinnamon ball is a must try.

Paula's Donuts is a family run business with three stores in the Buffalo, NY burbs. Their donuts are famous for their quality, size, and no shortage of filling. The peanut sticks are a favorite. To me they are a local attraction that is akin to Buffalo Chicken Wings. A must try if you are in the area.

Can't beat their donuts. Great variety. Filled donuts are unbelieveable. Many choices with variety of filling. Donuts are larger than normal.

It's hard to describe Paula's Donuts, other than to say they are delicious, over-stuffed and sooo sweet. My favorite has to be the peanut coated with cream filling. You only need one!! Very excellent donuts.

Fresh, creamy, most yummy donuts in Buffalo. Enough parking space, access is excellent. The service is excellent and a cue is normal and the fare is always fresh. Strawberry cheesecake and blackcurrant donuts suit my taste.

This is a fabulous place for doughnuts of all varieties. I go for the chocolate cream; my wife for the sugar jelly. Both are terrific. The doughnuts are big, doughy and filled full with whatever filling you choose. Great coffee as well ! Don't miss it - two locations !

There's no other place like this! The cinnamon glazed donut is a slice of The Best Taste Treat ever! Warm, mmmm more delicious if possible! Picked Up a dozen for the nursing staff at Roswell and just one for myself! Nothing an hour of cardio and the gym didn't take care of! Well, maybe it diminished half of the calories!... More

Established in 1996, Paula's Donuts(R) is a family owned and operated business. Our hand cut donuts are baked fresh daily on the premises, the old fashioned way.

Voted #1 Donuts by Buffalo Spree. Paula's has over 30 varieties of donuts as well as pastries, muffins, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, carrot cake, coffee, cappuccino, tea, hot chocolate, and cold beverages.


Excellence is not achieved by cutting corners. Using only the finest quality ingredients, we go the extra mile to bring you the very best in donut deliciousness.

Every Paula's donut has a very special ingredient, something you won't find in any of the big chain store donuts- we make our hand cut donuts with love!


Show your family, friends, and co-workers that you care enough to bring the very best. Our donuts are always fresh and they don't leave the unpleasant greasy aftertaste that you find in many mass produced donuts.

Donuts are supposed to be flavorful and are meant to delight your palate. If the donuts you buy now leave you feeling dissatisfied- it's time to see what a real donut should taste like. At Paula's we are always happy to serve you with the finest donuts in Buffalo.
