What I’ve ordered:
Of all donuts, I think I love fritters the most. The Apple Fritter at Grandma’s is over an inch thick, with a decent amount of apples and cinnamon. The inside is soft yet dense and the outside has a slight crust and just the perfect amount of glaze.
They have a handful of Kruller varieties at Grandma’s, I have tried the glazed. Great, eggy texture while still being somewhat firm.
The Maple Long John with Bacon made my Food Spotlight a few months ago. This raised donut was light and airy, soft on the inside with a slightly crunchy golden crust. The maple icing was sweet and when paired with the crispy, salty bacon crumbles, it tasted like classic breakfast with every bite ;)
I rarely eat jelly or custard-filled donuts but was intrigued when I saw the bright neon green frosting and then sold when I was told they were Key Lime. The filling was tangy and delicious.
Another Donut Grandma’s offers is a Chocolate Cake Donut with Coconut (natural or toasted). Very good
Service: The ladies who work at the bakery are incredibly sweet and patient, your order is prepared with care.
Overall Impression: Great place to pick up any bakery item that you could want or need. I recommend stopping for breakfast and getting something sweet with a coffee.
