Spalding’s Bakery Reviews

First time visiting Lexington, while walking from my AirBnB to Starbucks Saturday morning, noticed people streaming in & out of this place, so I suspected it was a local fixture that warranted attention. Proved to be an old-fashioned bakery with some old-timey charms. My family gave high marks to the 8-item sampler box I ordered. Order taker gave me a powdered instead of a 2nd blueberry I ordered. Enjoyable experience.

So glad I had a chance to get some Spalding’s cause it’s been a while. My favorite is the blueberry donut it’s good. Hopefully I catch them open again soon.


The donuts were amazing!! I have never tasted such delicious homemade donuts before. Most important thing is to take CASH with you and to go as early as you can due to them selling out pretty fast. I tried the glazed and chocolate donuts and my family absolutely loved each and every bit of them.

The do accept credit and debit now so that was a plus. However they just are not what they used to be. 1st time I’ve ever gone in and didn’t see a long line. Donuts and cream horns where simply no good. They tasted old and where not crispy like normal. This place used to be amazing a corner stone of lexington. It looks and tastes like it’s changed owner or at least cooks.

Well, thought I had been to the best bakery on the planet. Then I went to Spalding’s.

Cinnamon Rolls – best I have ever had
Glazed Donuts with Chocolate – best I have ever had.
Cinnamon Donuts – always sold out within an hour opening

Update: Looks like they now take cards in addition to cash, so I’ve changed my review to 5 stars. Thanks for listening, Spalding’s! 🙂 Best donuts in town — the original glazed melts in your mouth.

I grew up eating Spauldings Donuts. I used to walk almost 10 blocks to school in the sixth grade rather than ride the bus so I could go across the street from the school and get donuts at the old location on alarm stone. My last job for over 10 years was a doughnut fryer/maker so I know a little bit about donuts. Everyone always says spoutings is the best well I think That’s a yes and no answer. What is the type of donuts that you usually get from Spauldings they are the best around. The yeast donuts have that little bit of crispiness on them when you bight one and each one is like a snowflake. No two are alike. The problem is they have short hours and only take cash. You can get a donut that is just as good somewhere Else they will be just of a different kind of a donut. Only giving them two stars because they are closed for vacation

I rave about this place far and wide. The best glazed donut EVER!
Loving the fact that they now take debit/credit cards.

Caroline Murphy

Love love love these donuts. I brought so home for my family and now they constantly ask me to bring more! By far the best pastries in the eastern part of the country. Highly recommend the chocolate one. The ladies up front are so sweet highly recommend!


Nice bakery with a sweet assortment and staff.

But warning, CASH ONLY as of 1-30-2022.

Hopefully that changes.
