“the best donuts within a thousand miles!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Dottie's donuts, baked there on the premises, are fantastic. Its like goin to heaven without the hassle of dying.
Breakfast and lunch are very good , and they do serve dinner there on weekends,

Come to Woodbury for a day of antiquing in Connecticut's Antiques Capital and stop in for coffee and donuts at Dotties.

“A must stop-in for donuts! The best!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

I lived in town for three years. Found Dotties. They make the best donuts I've ever had. Always bought them into the office and family requested when visiting.

“A Great Little Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

This place is small, and during the winter, if you sit in the booth by the front door you will really regret it (front door keeps opening and I couldn't feel my feet by the end of breakfast). Other than that, they have great food and interesting specials (Nutella French Toast!). I opted for a traditional omelette and was very happy. Good service and prices that are reasonable. Oh yeah, and the donuts are so great they bring tears to your eyes. Wow!

“Dottie's basic and descent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

Small local diner. Good value, good food. Occasionally a long wait because of these reasons! Pleasant workers and great cinnamon donuts. Have been there for both breakfast and lunch, both very good.

“Best homemade donuts ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Nothing to dislike. Simple diner style and atmosphere. Great menu variety and the donuts alone are worth the trip.
