Honestly we planned to stop here because of the amusing name and how retro and old fashioned it looks from the outside. We arrived here at about 9:30, and many varieties of donuts were already sold out for the day, which was disappointing. No donut in stock appealed to me so I just had a medium tea, made to order....

Brilliant staff, excellent breakfast (not just donuts, though they are wonderful too), and coffee that is made just right for you. I've visited twice now, both time before 7) and although the building isn't much to look at (undoubtedly many will drive buy without noticing or stop short and visit Dismal Donuts chain instead) it's locally owned and locally run....

Donut Circus has nice variety to choose from, Boston Creme and Coconut Cream were excellent. Sophia was very pleasant, friendly and knew the names of the locals that were present. In this case two Police Officers and no, no donuts, they were having coffee only. Price was reasonable and worth finding first early morning coffee. The fact that locals were... More

I have to stop in here at least once a week for an Apple Fritter. They are the best I have ever had. The coffee is great, breakfast sandwiches are good too. The service is very friendly, family run.

We were in search of donuts on vacation and found this gem! Great donuts even at 11 AM and really nice people! Told them we were traveling with a 3 year old and after we left one of the girls ran out with a bag of donut holes on the house! So nice!

i love doughnuts. i can name the best spots in the United States from California to Florida. This little place is quaint and bursting with local flavor. However, the baked goods themselves have a very greasy after taste. The first bite is not the problem. At first, it is beautifully tasting. Two bites in, however, there is a film of... More

The Donut Circus is three rings of yum. Drive right on by that "other place" and check them out. The donuts have that home town touch that the franchise places can't match - with some unique choices like a "blueberry stuffed." Breakfast sandwiches are VASTLY superior to what you get elsewhere in both freshness and taste. Coffee is excellent and... More

We stopped for an early morning jelly donut because we craved a sweet delight with our coffee. Greeted with a friendly smile and hello from the girl at the counter. The glazed jelly loaded donuts looked so good. They were calling our names! So delicious, we went back the next day for more. Donut Lovers--you won't be disappointed.
