They sell an assortment of breakfast sandwiches which sounded good. But I wanted a donut so I ordered a lemon filled powdered sugar donut. It was $2.25 and fresh. The donut had a better taste than supermarket bakery donuts.

I don’t write reviews often but when I do it is usually in the positive, unfortunately today I had a very poor experienced here. Now this is my local neighborhood donut store. the school across the street I attended in elementary school and would walk over after school to get a donut. but life took me away from this neighborhood and as chance has it, I have found my way back. this morning I was looking for a shop to provide my office with morning pastries and was hoping to make it a 2x or 3x a week routine. because I had not been there in so long and their menu was different and changed a lot, my friends family was not running the shop anymore which is understandable because 20+ yrs of running the same business….so I asked one of the 2 ladies working which I am assuming was the mom, was short with me. I asked how much for a dozen then she snipped and said 17 and up, almost like she didn’t want to be there. so I asked how much for a half dozen. she waved her tongs around at each donut and said what ever each cost I asked her how much was the chocolate bar. she was once again short with me 1.75. then I ask how about the original chocolate, once again snippy, 1.75 so I asked so they are all the same? being short again said no!
so I said give me two chocolate bar. paid my 3.50 and left I will not be returning. last note I got to the office, took a bite of the donut, doughy, and oily. re-affirms my decision to not go back there. what a way to destroy a company my friend’s family shed blood, tears, and sweat on. the usually old clientele that use to frequent the place was no where to be seen. I should have taken that as my first red flag.

If you’re looking for a place to make your drink completely wrong with a side of attitude this is the place for you.

I came in for a dozen donuts and a matcha drink. I believe I ordered #57 (can’t remember the exact number) it was a matcha drink over ice with NO boba. I got a blended matcha WITH boba instead.

When I went back to let them know and she told me they “did me a favor” by putting boba in my drink because she didn’t charge me, but her son still added it. Also, it was my fault for not specifying if I wanted the drink over ice or blended. Excuse me? If I wanted the blended matcha I would have ordered #41. I want whatever is pictured as #57. When they finally remade the drink I could hear them slamming things back there and my drink was 90% ice 🙁

I have been a loyal customer here for about 4 years. I always brought these donuts to all my company meetings and recommend so many people to golden donut.

My best donuts ever.
You have to pay by cash only,
but it is cheap and has fantastic taste

Very delicious donuts. high quality dough. I also highly recommend their fresh squeezed orange juice, although a little pricy, it taste far better than store-bought orange juice

Clayton Woodcock

Good prices, great selection. You have to get there early thou. Can’t give it five, I saw a fly once and that is really off-putting

Pre-pandemic, we used to come here for donut and coffee breaks while doing volunteer work. The owners are super nice and are always happy to see us. They have some amazing breakfast sandwiches as well, although I’m more of a chocolate donut person myself.

I’ve been going to this donut shop for a year now and it never disappoints. The donuts are great but I usually get one of the croissant breakfast sandwiches. It’s always delicious and has a very soft, flaky croissant. I also tried their iced coffee recently and it was fantastic!

Riley Jones

Just your average donut shop. They have the standard selection of donuts, lots of breakfast sandwiches, boba tea, and shakes. I got 2 donuts, a sandwich, and coffee and it was pretty good, nothing outstanding. It’s cash only, which I don’t really mind, just be aware or you’ll have to go to the RiteAid next door for an ATM.
