My husband and I were visiting the Lexington area and were told by some friends about this hidden gem.There is a small parking lot located on the left of the building and also parallel parking available on the street. We tried going on Saturday and got there 4 minutes after they closed. They closed at 4. We were persistent because... More

My Maple Bacon donut was surprisingly great. I have been here several times to try their gluten free donuts but they always sell out. Today eureka!!! It was great.... gone so fast I did not even get to take a picture! Got the last one.

The kids loved the huge chocolate donuts. The cinnamon sugar and funnel cake donuts were good as well as the coffee. Plenty of parking and kid friendly with helpful, friendly staff.

Several unique flavors. The doughnuts were delicious, however it was disappointing that they ran out if all but 2 flavors before 10:30 on a Sunday. Not sure what the issue was, but I would think they should be better prepared for a Sunday morning.

Oh, North Lime, if only you weren't blinded by your hipness. I feel that North Lime operates under the assumption that their customers are too concerned with image to buy a superior product down the road at Spalding's. This place is just too hipster for me; I don't like unkind, uninterested service. I will put up with that kind of... More

Not sure how I found this spot, probably driving around Lexington and lost, but be assured I have gone back many times since then. I'm not a big coffee fan but my daughter tells me it's pretty good. I like that they have a chalk board explaining all the different coffee options. The donuts are truly the best in town,... More

Stopped in on a road trip after reading the reviews and was worth the detour. Purchased a chocolate-iced and a sprinkle. They were not was I was expecting. Hearty and tasty. They weren't an average glazed doughnut-- more cakey? Hard to describe but delicious non-the-less.

Amazing donuts. Parking can be a little tricky on the street, and don't let the neighborhood turn you off. The taste and quality will compensate!

To cut to the chase -- outstanding donuts. Several locals call them the best donuts in town, and it's hard to argue. Very good coffee as well. It can be crowded but, on a nice day, they have ample seating out the back door, which really makes it great. Beyond the food, you will enjoy plenty of atmosphere. You can... More
