I love this donut place. You choose the donut you want, and then tell them what kind of filling to put in it- custom ordered. Their raspberry filling is fabulous. When I have gone, the donuts are always fresh and warm.

Good selection of traditional and delicious donuts. Good friendly service. Seating is sparse and cramped. Take the donuts home.

What an amazing find! This small, homey, pleasant bakery does everything just right.

Not only are the pastries amazing and fairly priced, the proprietors are every bit as amazing!

Choosing a favorite pastry is a difficult task - but if pressed, its has to be either the large, tender yeasty rings of joy or the smaller siblings, the donut holes. I am anxious to return and try one of the custom filled Long Johns or Bismarks.

If you want a real "shot in the arm" late in the day, stop by and grab a 1/2 dozen of the donut holes...your greatest challenge will be either sharing or resisting the urge to go back and get more!!!

Wow...just wow!

In this world of assembly line food, most chain donuts shops lack the flavor and selection of the old mom and pop bakery. Enter Daylight Donuts to the rescue! These are excellent donuts, both cake and raised yeasty style, as well as divine cinnamon rolls, fritters and the like. OMHO, so many modern chain stores make up for lack of quality with excess sugar, while Daylight's donuts and pastries sweeten excellent dough judiciously to bring out the best. Also, this is my new go to place for breakfast sandwiches as they offer egg, cheese and a choice of 3 different breakfast meats on a super, buttery homemade croissant for a VERY reasonable price.

It's so nice to have donuts like the old-fashioned mom-and-pop ones instead of the mass produced ones that seem to have taken over. At Daylight, the donuts are individually filled with the requested flavor just prior to purchase. The people at the counter in Johnson City were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
