Having heard about this police-office-owner doughnut shop for years, I was finally able to visit in August 2017. There was a fairly long line when we got there on a Saturday morning, but it moved quickly. I noted after we finished eating what we didn't...More

Ok... I'm local; it's great to have this tourist attraction in town BUT I much prefer the donuts at a Dunkin Donuts as the ones at cops and donuts are too heavy. I prefer the lighter dough. Come see the place, buy a souvenir shirt,...More

Good doughnuts. Really good doughnuts. Good enough that I'm glad they don't have a store within 2 hours of my house. I would be in hyper-glycemic trouble. Seriously, good bakery, nice staff, everything you'd want when indulging in a doughnut, or cruller, or fritter, or...

We try to stop at Cops & Doughnuts each time we are in Clare. The Doughnuts and coffee are always wonderful. Today we had freshly made cherry chip doughnuts. Yum! It's worth the stop!

Wonderful background story on how a historic bakery was purchased by members of the local police department. Saving the business and with creative sayings starting with cop themed apparel. Take a fun pic of your favorite child in jail... or on the street.

There is a doughnut shop and bakery in Clare, Michigan that has been in constant operation since 1896. This foundation business was within weeks of closing when the members of the Clare Police Department came to the rescue. All of them. That's right, all nine members of the local police department banded together to save this historic business.Dubbed "Cops and Doughnuts," the business boasts handmade confections of all types. Join us for a warm fresh doughnut and a steaming cup of Cops Coffee while you enjoy the police decor and friendly, and very safe, atmosphere. Come and see the new store in Clare that everyone is talking about.Since opening as Cops & Doughnuts our business has expanded in to other adjoining store fronts allowing us to ad the "Cop Shop" our apparel and souvenir shop. And the "Traffic Stop Diner" featuring many American Diner favorites.
