“good donuts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

This is an interesting little place, because it's tucked away behind the museum on main street, we almost missed it.

Its plain chocolate donut covered with coconut and cream donut cover with toasted coconut were very tasty.

“Donut Haven in Busy Freeport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Finally gorged recently at the Frosty's Donut shop in Freeport, Maine and found the nirvana of deep-fried sweet dough which produces homemade-like donuts. I consider myself a donut aficionado as the son of the premier master of the donut craft in Old Town, Maine in the 1950's. My search to find the perfect donut to what my father made then, was finally found at my latest visit to Freeport. Had heard about Frosty's in nearby Brunswick, but never had the opportunity to stop there in recent years. When I learned Frosty's had opened an outlet in the L.L.Bean and shopping outlet-dominated town, I made four stops in this new shop on the main street of Freeport and sampled the chocolate and plain donuts along with the famous Twisty's and found them perfect. Perfect as in cooked just right with no fat residue on fingers, balanced sugar content, particularly on the lightly sugared chocolate offerings, and leaving a satisfied aftertaste. Another good reason to keep Freeport on my list of must stops for the annual trip to my native state of Maine.

“THE BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

A very quaint and special bakery. Locals were there and as I overheard must come daily. The young lady behind the counter was so helpful and patient with us. The donuts are quite big and absolutely delicious. I had a yeast twist and it was great! Took a few back yo our B&B. my husband had iced cake donuts and he said they melted in his mouth. Once again a few went back to our B&B. When in Freeport, try to enjoy a Frosty's Donut. You'll be glad you did!!
