Donuts here are amazing. It will be difficult to get through the line without trying one. (Make sure you try the chocolate covered.) But, they have great cooked-to-order breakfast and lunch also. Great atmosphere - hang out with the locals - never leave hungry.

We went here while visiting with family. The breakfast food was great and the cinnamon rolls and doughnuts were out of this world, but the restrooms kept me from giving this place 5 stars.

Crowded Saturday morning but worth the short wait in line. Wide selection of bakery goods as well as cook to order breakfasts. Multiple coffee choices.

We never visit Lexington without a morning at Magee's! Their donuts and biscuits are the best. They have expanded their breakfast offerings and improved the seating. Everything is self serve but it doesn't diminish the appeal.

Another gem we came across in the city of Lexington. We were tipped off to Magee's Bakery by a friend in the know, so we came here for breakfast. Since it was our first time, the very friendly woman behind the counter gave us a quick tour of the "goodies". We ordered breakfast and I also decided to try one... More

So we had family weekend in Lexington for our UK students. We didn't get tickets to the donut trail thru the UK Family Association so we decided to make a real donut trail. But this was such a surprised that we have to figure out another time to come and visit and enjoy the lovely setting. They have more than... More
