Try the date bar with coffee, very tasty. Start every day here open very early. Beautiful courtyard outside and located in the Village

These donuts are seriously delicious. I'm actually sad that the ones we brought back home are already gone. One item of note, they only take cash, but there is an ATM available in the store. We will be back for more!

It's a tradition to get donuts one morning for breakfast from The Donut Friar. They offer a wide variety of donuts but get there early for the best selection. Tucked in The Village and prices are reasonable too!

Some of the best donuts I have ever had! The chocolate cruller is a must and the glazed croissant just melts in your mouth.

Since grade school I have enjoyed the scrumptious offerings of the Donut Friar. There donuts are homemade and delicious. You must try the chocolate crullers. They are crunchy on the outside and melt in your mouth good on the inside.
