Alvernon Donut Shop is making the best donuts in Tucson! You can get your cronut fix here, too. I love that this little shop has such creative bakers. They are always coming up with something new and delicious. The staff is friendly, happy to help you make a choice, and patient when you're having trouble making up your mind. Great... More

These people are friendly and they make real donuts (as opposed to what you get in some of those chains). We will go again next time we are in Tucson.

My husband and I went here last week to avoid the Krispy Kreme mess. We usually go to another family owned place on our side of town, but being over this way wanted to try out Alvernon Donuts. The donuts were amazing! The ones we got were even still warm... and SO good. The staff were all very friendly. Will... More

This restaurant has served Tucson for decades and continues with great, friendly costumer service and perfect donuts and fritters in a wide variety of flavors. There is indoor seating and it is indeed a place to go where everyone knows your name! PS: check out the picture from on the wall from the 1940's of the fighter jet and its... More

I have been twice and the quality is amazing. I am a skilled baker and cook and these donuts are as fresh and tasty as it gets! The guys that work there are masters at customer service as well! I especially like "old fashioned" donuts with the split crunchy top; they have three or four different kinds! Amazing variety! Well... More

A great little place serving up super tasty FRESH donuts! The buttermilk bars are amazing, the apple fritters are tender and full of apples and the giant cinnamon rolls are to die for. Can't wait to try absolutely everything else!

Despite having lived in Tucson for 30 years, I had never been to Alvernon Donut Shop. My visit there today was completely by chance, as I was driving to the Dunkin Donuts I was familiar with. A hole in the wall joint, this place could not have been more unassuming. The young man who took my order at the drive... More
