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!

We dropped in for breakfast and the food was good and the service was excellent. The menu is a little limited for a breakfast place. It has the small town charm you might be looking for when traveling.

My adult daughter and I were passing through Watkins Glen for the first time and stumbled across Tobey’s Donut Shop just after the lunch hour. We ventured in and ordered a sugar donut to share; within minutes we were back at the counter buying a chocolate one to split between us. That wasn’t enough; we then bought an apple cinnamon treasure! So lunch became a sugar high of 3 of the most delicious (shared) donuts ever. If we didn’t live over a thousand kms away we would be back with great regularity. Oh! And the staff were lovely and so friendly! Highly recommend this shop; go super early for best choices.

This appears to be the hub of Watkins Glenn in the mornings. Friendly staff and excellent bagels and pastires. We took out but lots of people were sat in dining. Friendly and efficient staff. Highly recommend it as the affordable but great option.

Besides tons of yummy donuts, they also serve hot breakfast sandwiches. I had a bacon, egg and cheese muffin that was hot, freshly made (and fast) and delicious. The chocolate cake donut was also divine.
