Boutique/designer donut shops have cropped up around NOLA - but don't live in the same universe as the old school Tarrytown Cafe. Open 24/7 - serving constantly fresh donuts. Never disappointed.

Fantastic glazed donuts. Always fresh....unlike most donut shops they fry them several times a day. On Sundays, they can run out of glazed. But you get the pleasure of waiting for the next fresh batch. They also have cheap, Royal Castle / White Castle style hamburgers.

Open all hours. Perfect for that late night bite. The best donuts in the city. Catfish mini burgers, fries, breakfast, and awesome inexpensive chicken strip meal.

I enjoy either eating their in cozy home-style café or ordering to go and enjoying my low-cost delicacies at home. I have also purchased boxes of doughnuts in the morning and brought them to work for my coworkers to enjoy with me. I tried doing the same from other doughnut shop, but they were not hot and fresh as Terrytown... More

They beat any other doughnut shop by far!!! Sometimes I think there's not much to a doughnut, but then I get a doughnut from somewhere else and I'm reminded once again how good they really are! The servers will let you know if some fresh ones are about to come out. You can't ask for better service than that. Go... More

Saw this place on Google. Voted best donuts in NOLA. Very close to downtown. Loved the quaintness of Terrytown. The donuts are best we have ever eaten. We grew up eating Krispy Kreme. These put them to shame. Also the muffins and apple fritters are amazing. Only one complaint- the creme filled donuts have a Bavarian filling instead of a... More

Been coming to this donut shop for years and it is almost always great. Lots of seating and a large variety of delicious donuts. The only thing keeping their rating from a five is while most of the staff is friendly and helpful, they are a few that can be rude and inattentive. When a person asks for coffee three... More

This is a donut shop with counter service & a couple tables that just happens to serve a great basic breakfast. Eggs, toast, sausage & grits. Just the right size, cooked perfectly. I would give it a 5 star rating but hey.........it's a donut shop.
