General Porpoise Reviews

Best donuts ever, and we tried all the flavors available that day. I especially loved the vanilla custard one. And love that all the fillings all made with fresh and seasonal ingredients.
We got exceptional service. The baristas we’re super friendly and knowledgeable. We got 3 different coffee drinks and all were made perfectly.
Oh and this location in 1st St was super cute! Love the aesthetic.


I’m not a huge filled donut fan… but I do find myself coming back and back to general porpoise. The Chocolate Marshmallow is definitely my favorite, along with the recent Huckleberry Jam seasonal for August. It’s quite pricey, at 5.50 pretax per donut the last I went. but I heard the worker say that a batch takes multiple days to make, so maybe it’s worth it. Definitely reserved for special occasions or when I’m really feeling down though.

What a beautiful place! Delicious doughnuts, the chocolate- marshmallow is amazing as well as the blackberry jam doughnut! And look at this texture


When I initially tried the donuts over the years, I wasn’t a fan. It had a greasy aftertaste. However, this day it was good! They have 5 flavors each day. 3 standard and 2 specialty flavors. We liked the huckleberry best, then lemon. Chocolate and vanilla were good. Coffee was just ok. Beautiful space – surrounded by artist, Jeffry Mitchell’s famed elephants!

Yummiest donuts ever and great coffee too. I also love the location. It’s in a great area to walk around in. The inside of the shop is also dazzling with the beautiful granite floors and cute and minimalistic decorations. The floating elephants on the ceiling are my favorite. 10/10 experience. It is definitely a must go to place if you’re in the area!
Also kind and friendly staff especially that Jacob they have over there.


They were out of matcha so I got a different tea which was recommended, not bad. Their truffle quiche was yummy. Great space to work from friendly staff and super clean

Unfortunately no vegan action for me but my parents loved the lemon curd and strawberry jam donuts! Hey, coffee wasn’t bad. Staff was cool and answered our questions and apologized for lack of vegan option. The decor and interior is neat and uplifting. Nice open space with available seating.

The doughnuts and the coffee are exceptionally good if not expensive. The gap between how beautiful the interior is and how cold and unfriendly the staff are is really disappointing. They always assume I am getting things to go even when I arrive hours before the posted closing time and then seem put off when I ask if I can sit.

Great donuts, friendly service, and LOVE that we can order online beforehand. No waiting and no disappointment. I just wish they’d explore more with the flavors, and be more creative.

We loved this place! Started with one doughnut each and ended up getting a 2nd. They were super tasty. My favorite was the coconut and my husband’s favorite was the vanilla bean. Friendly service too!
