We stopped during a food tour and got to pick our choice of donuts. I chose Boston Cream. I had a chocolate frosted cake donut topped with a delicious cream filling.

Not worth going out of your way for. Headed over for coffee and donuts, and while donuts weren't bad, they definitely weren't worth making a trip for, and it's more like an indoor food truck than a coffee and donut shop. Not even a table or chair to enjoy your coffee in.

These are very small donuts, (I know thats in the name) but they are quite disappointing. They just put toppings on in front of you. Nothing overwhelming. They are pricey for what you get

"Yes" times a bajillion to this place! Just walking past this place and sniffing the air in its vacinity is heavenly! Perfect tiny and overwhelmingly decadent donuts = yes. My favorite at this moment is the Samoa donut, but this will change I am sure as they are always showcasing new and fun flavors!

Enjoyed some delicious treats from Peace, Love and Little Donuts! They were small but mighty. Great flavors. The coconut chocolate was yummy! Such a great concept. I definitely recommend tasting and enjoying these donuts. Great place! Enjoy the many flavors of mini donuts!

Stopped in because I could beat back the incredible smell emanating from the building. REALLY small place, small donuts, big selection, HUGE flavor. The maple bacon donut was a foodgasim.

We stopped here because we had a Groupon. The donuts are the perfect size to let you try a few flavors. Definitely a "hole in the wall".

We love going this location in the Strip. Lemon ginger and apple pie are awesome. The hole in the wall aspect suits this place well.

I reached out to PL&LD to make a special order 30-donut cake for my husband's 30th birthday. The owner quickly responded with a price quote and details about the order.

We have been going to PL&LD for years. The original shop is a tiny walk-through located near 21st coffee on Smallman. Our favorite Saturday activity is to get coffee and then fresh donuts to walk around the Strip. The cinnamon donuts are amazing - especially when fresh from the fryer. They also offer GF donuts from Gluuteny at their suburban... More
