I was surprised to see a line out the door, but the wait was worth it. Did not take long even with a line. This is a great place to go if visiting Cincinnati area- worth the drive. Lots of variety.

Holtman's has the best freshest doughnuts in town. It is a small hometown place and they quickly move you through the line and send you on your way to enjoy their delicious treasures. Pickup a dozen to service a couple breakfast meals or to have for a late night snack. Truly enjoyable.

We were a little surprised that the line was outside the ship. However, the line does go pretty fast The doughnuts were delicious and worth waiting for.

We visited for the first time, driving from the east side of Cincinnati. Totally worth the drive. All of the doughnuts were fresh and delicious. We did pay the up-charge for the bacon topped doughnuts and I was underwhelmed. I like bacon as much as the next guy, but I personally didn't think it added all that much. Definitely unique... More

If you have not tried their donuts yet you have no idea what you're missing. They are simply delicious with lots of variety and all freshly baked. Don't miss them if you're at all close!!!

The best donut around! It's a small place and the parking is terrible. Once you taste the yummy goodness you will forget about any inconvenience.

Other donut places don't compare to Holtman's Donuts. Fresh everyday made by the family. It was started because their grandfather said there were no good donuts around. They don't skimp on ingredients including the glaze and frosting. Yuk on those grocery store donuts. The drive is WORTH IT!

We don't live in the area but we drive through occasionally. Holtman's is always worth a stop, though I would recommend this one as opposed to the one in Over the Rhine that has a huge line, no parking, and often runs out. Pro-tip: the yeasted doughnuts are very good, but I think cake is king here, especially the blueberry,... More

Living in a neighborhood close to Holtman's is both a really great thing and a really tough thing. Great because once you figure out the hours of operation you can get one of their doughnuts as fresh as any you can find. Tough because my car has such a terrible time resisting the lure of their store parking lot. Their... More

Blue berry donuts are fantastic! If they don't have Blue berry any of their do uts are great. Bavarian creme are good as well.
