They have the best maple donuts with bacon! If you want a full breakfast or lunch, they have it. Matt and Allen, the new owners are present and very personable. They also give back to the homeless, donating all donuts at the end of the day.

I love supporting local businesses and after eating at PT's we decided to get a sweet treat. When the owner found out we had never been before he gave us a quick run down on the joint. We went in for one donut but walked out with 4! The owner said your first visit donut is free, I thought he was kidding but he wasn't. We got an Apple Fritter, sour cream donut, key lime with chocolate frosting donut, and glazed croissant. All of them were AMAZING! The owner knew all the people coming and going. What a great place! AND they donate their baked goods at the end of the day instead of throwing it away. That's awesome!

We enjoyed the friendly staff, bagels, and Donuts. We hit this place two mornings in a row!

There is a local vibe with fresh food, check it out.

The husband and I made this our turnaround point when cycling the Cross City Trail. We enjoyed a delicious chicken sandwich plus a maple/bacon donut. The staff was super friendly and helpful and allowed us to refill our water bottles. There is a nice outdoor patio area where we could sit with our bikes while we ate. Highly recommend.

We have so many new donut places like 4 within a mile. I like this one best because it's a donut not desert. Most have so much goop to them there sickening sweet. But Donut inn has a very good cake donut with some sweetness that doesn't take away from the donut.
