This is a must have for your trip to Boston! My wife and I stopped here when we came for her first mothers day weekend. The doughnuts are HUGE! And they are incredibly good to match the size!

So good! We had 3 Kane's Donuts on a walking tour and they were amazing. The honey dipped and blueberry donuts were our favorite.

I was ready for my after breakfast snack (lol) and a doughnut was the trick. Honey crisp - I had this while at the shop and I enjoyed the sweetness of the doughnut. The doughnut itself was very fresh. I had the blueberry doughnut about...an hour later and I really liked how the doughnut tasted as if I just bought it from the store.More

Donuts are fine, customer service is shockingly poor. Don't bother. Go to Union's instead. I had a remarkably bad experience today. Read on if you're interested. I ordered about $50 worth of donuts for my office last Friday, 1/5, scheduled for pick up for today,...1/8. I go to the counter and tell the two staff members my check number and my name. They hand me a bag and I leave. I put the donuts down at my office and have to immediately begin work. Someone points out to me that this must be incorrect, as there are barely any donuts in the bag. I read the bag and it is the wrong order. I bring the bag back to Kane's immediately and explain that they handed me the wrong order. They say the bag I took was from yesterday and wasn't paid for. They asked me to cover the $18 cost of the wrong order, as I did not bring the food back because the office mistakenly took it to eat. I tell them that that is not my issue, and that I did not receive the order I paid for. The guy (bearded, middle aged) actually accuses me of taking the bag instead of him handing it to me. And he starts putting together my order, which means it wasn't even ready for when I originally arrived. I refused to pay for the $18 order they gave me. He even said "Forget about yesterday, this is about today, and I'm $18 short. Don't you have a company card?" Which I wasn't about to explain my finances to him. I left with my correct order and did not pay for the $18 order that was never picked up. I purchase $50 worth of donuts fairly often. I can't believe they would risk that business over one $18 order. They were shortsighted and rude to me, accusing me of taking a wrong order in front of other customers. I am very weary of returning. And I would like an apology in response to my poor review. I went to Better Bagels for lunch and told the cashier what happened in casual conversation. He tells me this is not the first time he's heard stories about this: he's heard of lazy employees and poor customer service. Guess the word is spreading about what Kane's is really like. God forbid they give you the wrong order. Expect to pay for it out of your own pocket.More

Delicious Doughnuts. The only problem is they were huge ! Also, tough decision to pick just one. Great experience and two minute walk from our hotel, the Langham.

Got here at the original Location store just as they were closing. Fortunately, sweet people let me order before closing doors. They were clearly done and I GREATLy appreciated the accommodation. Saturday shift,…give them a raise. Donuts rocked. Crème brûlée was good but the honey...dipped (recommended by staff) and the chocolate frosted were the stars. Thank you!More

Saturday morning-- the spot was crowded and there was a line, but it moved quickly and efficiently. As you stand in line you get to check out the amazing donuts! We had two egg sandwiches and split a caramel apple donut. Everything was really good!!...Definitely check it out!More

Wonderful donuts with a real homemade feel. Larger rings than made by the principal donut provider for the city. A good choice of toppings. And the coffee is great.

Probably the best doughnuts we've ever had. We got a plain honey glazed and a cookies & cream. They were both huge and absolutely amazing. It's not as flashy as some of the other doughnut shops in Boston but the standard of food was very...high indeed.More

The honey jelly and the Celtics donuts were really good and dense. The blueberry was just alright for us. The selection was low but we were a bit late. There were a couple racks to side that we should have asked about, the server didn’t...mention them so we assumed they weren’t for walk ups. I am unable to get my photo to load, it doesn’t show even show it when I choose to add a pic, sorry…..More
