Yes, highly recommend. The donuts are really loaded up with toppings. And they have lots of baked goods on sale other than donuts. They even sell popcorn!

Their hours of operation are good for a donut shop too. They close at 6!

The gas station idea I hate; but I'm ok with this they're just rehabbing a building. And bringing a nice new venture to town.
