We love going here. Haven't had a bad donut yet. Service is fantastic and the iced coffee is yum. A busy place but they are so fast and efficient. I even bought a t-shirt

“Good donuts”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

I just joined trip advisor, and I saw this is the number one restaurant in Anna Maria. It is a coffee and donut store, and for that it is the number one restaurant?? A little confusing to me as it is not a restaurant. Having said that, the donuts are delicious. I have been here only once, because I like a little more choice...that's just me.

“Worthwhile stop”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed my maple bacon donut. Would be a nice ice cream shop alternative with kids. Nice space with seating and a coffee shop next door.

“"A taste for everyone in the family!"”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

A unique concept allows everyone in the family to satisfy their sweet tooth! Starting with a basic cake donut, everyone can choose from a variety of icings and toppings. From maple/bacon to caramel/sea salt to key lime to peanut butter to chocolate/raspberry and more...endless options lets everyone leave happy!

Complete your order form and watch them make your custom box of donuts in front of you.

Don't forget a freshly cup of brewed coffee. Rotating flavors of the day.

A definite "must do" (even more than once) when visiting AMI.

“Great little Donut Shop”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

I love donuts and this place totally lived up to my expectations. They make em fresh right as you order. Many toppings to choose from also. I had the bacon maple donut which was to die for. I mean bacon with most things are delicious. If you ever visit beautiful Anna Maria Island you must stop here. Will be back anytime we are in town.
