Having worked in a donut shop for a few years I feel that I have the qualifications to judge a great donut. Spalding's is as good at it gets! The regular glazed are the stars of the show, they have the perfect combination of what a donut should be; not too sweet and light or too heavy and doughy. There... More

I was with a few friends before church around 10ish. It was very busy, but I believe it was worth the wait. I got the cream filled donut and the blueberry cake donut. The cream filled donut was different than the typical cream filled donuts from like Krispy Kreme. The blueberry cake donut was by far my favorite. I was... More

Busy, busy place! Sometimes there is a line out the door. (Bonus, if you have to wait outside, they process Jif peanut butter across the street and it smells divine.) My favorite treats are the warm, glazed donuts, but a close second would be the cinnamon twist. They also make cakes and cupcakes.

If you are in the mood fro a great glazed or chocolate glazed donut, then stop by here. They are closed on Mon and Tues and only open from 630am to 1230pm so get there early. The cakes and pecan Danish are also my favorites.

These are some of the best doughnuts I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. You need to get there early because they usually sell out before noon. There is usually a line... And the staff are in no hurry to rush you in and out as they enjoy talking with each of their customers... But do not be in... More

The best Doughnuts in Lexington….hands down!! Prepare for a line, but they are well worth the wait. The glazed are our perfection, but try the cinnamon cake and whatever their special doughnut is that day….you won't be disappointed. We've even served their cakes for special birthdays and although they may look a little less fancy than other places…they are AMAZING!... More

There is more to Spaldings than just their famous glazed doughnuts! Try the apple fritters (if they are not sold out), gooey bars, brownies, cinnamon twists.

I wanted to bring some baked goods for a client visit that was close by where our clients were located. This place was recommended by the hotel. Popular enough that there are line out the door. Fortunately for us, we were a bit later in the morning, so the lines were not bad. Most baked good are $1 or under... More
