Saw it across from the visitor's center and museum and decided to grab some snacks for later. Looks a little run down, but obviously busy so we decided to check it out. They had a fairly large selection, and we were in and out pretty fast with four kinds of donut's

Be prepared to stand in long lines if you want donuts from this shop. It is VERY popular and has a legendary reputation. Donuts were very good but IMO not worth 25 minutes waiting in line.

These people know how donuts are supposed to be made without having to be cutsie like their Portland competition. The downfall is their popularity and the long lines at peak times.

This is a very popular don't shop. My kids love it. We have had donuts here many, many times. I can only eat the cake donuts. Everything with glaze is way too overdone for me. This is most definitely a personal opinion. I have lots of friends that love their donuts, it just isn't what I like. Cake donuts are... More

After hearing rave reviews of Joe's Donut Shop for years, we finally stopped in for our sweet tooth "fix". It is truly a little place but the cronut was perfection. My spouse had the old fashioned and declared it "just as it should be". We definitely will stop again when we visit Sandy.

The donuts here are excellent! The shop is not near us, but we stop there whenever we are driving through Sandy, Oregon. The donuts will sit for several hours in our hot car, so we ask them to not stack them, either by putting them in a box/boxes or in separate bags (so the frosting doesn't melt from one donut...

At a dinner party, another friend and I agreed to bring Joe's Donuts and popular Portland VooDoo donuts for a taste contest. We placed a sampling of both donuts on plates and other guests voted on which ones they liked best. Joe's won! These are excellent donuts, like I remember from my childhood.

Everyone said "You have to stop at Joe's on your way to the mountain!" So we did. I bought 2 maple bars, that were placed in one small bag. I bought a cherry fritter and a croinut, which were place together in another small bag. The bags immediately started to become greasy. I put the bags in a zip lock... More
