This is a place to get your baked goods and leave - things sell fast. The line can get long. Fabulous doughnuts - delicious when they are warm. Loved the cream horns as well. No place to sit and eat - it is definitely just serving to go. It's the south - they take their time with service - all... More

If you're in Lexington, Ky you have to make a stop at Spalding's Bakery! That is, if you're there before Noon. You may have to stand in line for a few minutes but it is so worth the wait! The original glazed doughnuts are so yummy, you can't stop with just one. They are entirely made by hand. They have... More

Very good donut but so sweet I felt like I needed to chug a gallon of water halfway through eating it.

We were driving by an decided to stop. There was a line for the donuts. We chatted with other customers getting their favorites. We each got two donuts an a cinnamon rolls. These donuts were so light. We wish we would have gotten more. Definetly try these donuts.

Always visit whenever I am in town. Expect a line, even at 11:00 a.m. The donuts are the best in town - I can only eat one or one and a half, but they are moist and great taste. The staff know their regular customers but are as friendly to new faces. Old school business model that works.

If you are a fan of yeast style donuts, this place has the very best. But be sure to get there early in the morning because they are so popular that the line can be out the door! But when you finally get them they are sure to be fresh, hot, just a tad doughy, and absolutely delicious.

If my wife is ever missing early on a morning, I just assume that great donuts are coming from Spaldings.
