Went here late a night and it was packed. Line out the door. The employees are decently friendly. You will see some interesting characters around the area, especially if you go at night. I'd recommend getting at least a half-dozen. 2 buckeye donuts for sure and a mix of the others! GO BUCKS

The service is express. The donut varieties include classic staples and creative batches like the Red... More

This bakery located on the main campus of THE Ohio State University has the best donuts. Typically, I am not that much of a donut lover, but theirs are the best! Their Buckeye donuts taste just like a Reese's cup and are so good! They are open 24 hours I believe. Their powdered jelly and cream donuts are also amazing.... More

If you like donuts after dinner and are in Columbus this is your place. Open 24 hours when every other place closes at 7pm or before. Simple donut shop with killer cronuts!!

We promised our Grandson if he finished his dinner we would get him a doughnut. So with a recommendation from our OSU Grad we stopped and ordered 1 chocolate and 4 Buckeye. The Bucheye doughnuts were wonderful. We all enjoyed them.

Okay, there were 2 of us and we ordered 12 donuts. Yes that's right 12. We were driving back to New York. One rule on our road trips we can eat whatever we want. Hands down the best donut was the Buckeye (and we tried a few!). When we got home there was only half a Buckeye donut left my... More

This is the place to go after an evening in the bars on High St. Most of the donuts we had were very fresh - a couple not so much, but it's the place to go! Super friendly staff no matter the time of day or night.

We had a tour of the kitchen and watched them glaze the donuts. So many to choose from. They have breakfast sandwiches too.
