This place was awesome and must go to place for breakfast! Local donut shop with daily homemade donuts. The donuts we YUMMY! They also have regular coffee, lattes and more. There are only 2 tables so I would plan to eat outside, your hotel or...car...but don't let that stop you because the donuts are so worth it. We loved this place so much we went back the next day.More

The best part about Gurnee Donuts is that you know the donuts are prepared and made locally with love. I love dining at local establishments and this is my go-to place for donuts. They have some special donuts only made on some days so be...sure to check back often.More

Even with living here my entire life I had never been to this doughnut shop and I regret it so much!! Loved the old fashioned glazed, blueberry, and Ube coconut (that one the most)!

This little hidden gem is a must place to visit if you like donuts. This is a family owned business that was established in 1994. They make a variety of donuts, that not only tastes good, but donuts that you normally don't find anywhere else...at a donut chain restaurant. One of their popular donuts that is offered on the weekends are there ube donuts. If I'm not mistaken, they are the only bakery I know that makes ube donuts around the area. It's undeniably tasty and moist. My favorite donut of theres are called Twists. Its looks like a braided donut with sugar dusting on top and its unbelievably delicious! It's best served warm but if it's around room temperature, it's still great to eat! This is a must place to visit for coffee and donuts. You wont regret it!More

Stopped in to grab some donuts for my team on Wednesday morning. One of co-workers had suggested this vs. the usual Dunkin Donuts. The smell of fresh baked donuts hit my nose as soon as I walked in. Lots of good options. Personally I had...a Boston Creme and it was delicious. Great crunch on the first bite, followed by all the soft and creamy goodness you’d expect. My team loved them too. It will not be the last time.More

A friend told us about the apple fritters and said they were SO good. We felt it was our duty to check it out, since it's a local business and we haven't been there. I will say -- she was right! They are very good....And quite big. The two of us could have easily split one - but no - we each had our own. Everything is made there, so it's very fresh. We were there mid-day, so it wasn't crowded, but it's my understanding that in the morning, week-ends especially, they are very crowded with a line out the door. The owners are very nice. Since our first visit, we have already been back. It's nice to support small family-owned businesses - and this one definitely is worth the stop.More

The donuts are amazing. They are extremely fresh no matter if we visit first thing in the morning or around noon. The owners are very kind and friendly. My family is addicted to the apple fritters and the buttermilk donuts. Definitely worth stopping by and...trying !More
