Greenbush Bakery Reviews

My wife and I weren’t sure what we were walking into from the outside of this establishment but we are happy we did. We tried Greenbush bakery, and we’ve already been back multiple times since. That’s how good it is.

The inside of the shop is awesome. They have a huge selection of donuts to choose between. It’s easy to get lost in the amount of choices. Their prices are incredible reasonable. Their basic donuts start at $1.15 each and the specialties go up from tthere. We decided to try a wide variety to get a good scope of what they can do.

Since most of the donuts have the same base, we’ll start with their fried donuts. The donut vase is super fluffy and not overly oily. You can tell these are made fresh on a regular basis. Now to get into the types of fried donuts we tried.

The chocolate longjohn is a staple of any donut shop and theirs was no slouch. The chocolate was delicious and not overly sweet which was great.

The vanilla frosted ring donut was great. We really liked that they did the Packers colored sprinkles. It’s fun when there’s team pride food items, which we see again later with the cake donut.

The basic glazed was awesome. The best part about glazed donuts is they never disappoint and their was delicious. Sweet glaze, not overly sticky and very yummy.

Now for the cake donut base. Their cake donut was the best we have ever tried. It was extremely soft even though they’d been out for a few hours, they still tasted freshly baked. The outside has a nice crispness with a very soft inside. It basically melts in your mouth.

Their vanilla sprinkled cake donut is my favorite donut in Madison. I’m very particular about cake donuts, the frosting has to be right and so do the sprinkles. Theirs is the best I have tried and that’s saying a lot.

My wife’s favorite (which she didn’t take a picture of because she ate it too fast) was the plain, unfrosted cake donut. It’s not too sweet and has such a nice crunch on the outside with a sweet cakey interior.

We also heard they did old fashioned donuts so we had to try a few of those. The old fashioned donut base is very very good. A little crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.

The blueberry old fashioned is one my wife’s favorites it had a nice fruit flavor and the frosting was wonderful.

The cherry old fashioned was recommended by the staff, and it did not disappoint. Little bits of cherry running throughout gave a wonderful flavor and a fun color to the donut.

Per thenstafgs recommendation we decided to try one of their specialties, a blueberry maple donut. The employee who helped us said it tasted just like a blueberry pancake and boy were they right. It wasn’t overly maple flavored, very subtle and very tasty. It paired perfectly with the blueberry flavor. Would be great alongside a cup of coffee.

The vanilla old-fashioned was also delicious, definitely another donitnshop staple that they hit perfectly.

The showstopper at Greenbush Bakery has to be their Apple Fritter. It’s massive, looking more like a cake than a donut, this thing would easily feed 3-4 people. For size comparison we put it next to a cake donut. It’s super soft inside is packed with apple pieces and a cinnamon swirl that makes it taste more like a pie than a donut. My dad said this was the best apple fritter he had ever tried. It’s also a steal at around $5 for such a massive treat.

Needless to say we will DEFINITELY be visiting Greenbush Bakery again soon. They are nailing it across the board on donuts. Everything tastes incredibly fresh and their selection has something for everyone.

Found it about this place when my coworker brings in doughnuts in once in a while and they’re the absolute best cake doughnuts I’ve ever had.

The insides are so soft but they get the perfect amount of crispy in the outside, they got it down pat.

Prices aren’t bad at all and they got a pretty good selection. If you don’t see what you want just ask they have more in the back.

Donuts were fresh and delicious. Apple fritter was crunchy, BIG, and delicious. Usually big fritters are stale but it’s was fresh. The donuts melts in your mouth. Just the right kind of sweetness for me. The cinnamon bun 10/10!!

Been here a handful of times now. And I can’t say that I have many great experiences. Good luck finding a classic donut shop feel here. They ignore the basic donuts in favor of more fancy and “new age” donuts. Leaving the selection pretty small.

Alexis Countryman

Awesome donuts. Clearly fresh and if you’re looking for some for tomorrow I would get the cake donuts (crullers) instead of the yeast donuts. Definitely a must go in Madison!

I used to love the long johns. Especially the maple ones. It’s been awhile since I was at greenbush and today the donuts just didn’t seem to taste as good as they used to be. Was the recipe changed?

Steve Vujnovich

The quality of the fritters have gone down hill. The fritters used to be crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Now they are too thick and dry on the inside and the outside is soft. This may be due to higher humidity but not quite sure. The Regent street location seems to have a better quality of fritter. It will be a while before we go back as this is the second time that the fritters have been poor quality in the past few months.

I wanted to try Wisconsins best donuts. The staff was friendly, great variety, and the donuts were great.
Make it a destination. I took my cousin and we went on a road trip.. You will not be disappointed.

Apple fritters use to be great here. Not sure what happened. No apples in them and over baked, pretty much burnt. Sad to see places sacrifice quality to save money.

Marcia Becker

Reasonably priced nummy doughnuts.
Wish they had some gluten free.
Girl that waited on me was very nice.
