Description: Tobey's Donut Shop is a third generation, family owned business. All donuts are hand made fresh every morning using the same basic recipes and techniques as my Grandfather used at "Tobe's Bake Shop" on Franklin Street in 1952. We sell donuts made fresh on the premises daily, limited cookies and pastries. We also have breakfast sandwiches made fresh to order. Beverages are: Fresh hot coffee, cappuccino, hot cocoa, assorted juices, sodas, milk, sports drinks, energy drinks, bottled water, etc.. You can sit down and eat here, inside, on the patio, or at one of the small 2 seat tables on the 4th street sidewalk where smoking is,(for now), still permitted. Larger orders of 2 dozen or more should call and order 24 hours in advance, if possible, as we sell out quickly some days and may have a very limited selection remaining. This is a recommendation and not a requirement!

Years ago, Tobes was a wonderful fresh bakery and diner type place with scrumptious food. It sold a few years ago and the second team never quite got it together although low prices kept the tourist trade coming. Sadly, this is another lost restaurant to the area that did fill a niche.

Nondescript small town diner. I don't mean diner in the traditional formica and shiny sense. More like wooden chair and paneling. Nothing out of the ordinary here...that's not bad as it also means no drama or issues with our meal or service. Decent place for a quick breakfast. They also serve lunch and ice cream...not sure about dinners though.

The food was good. Little cramped but the service made up for the tight quarters. Really not a bad place overall but there are better in and around WG.
