The home of the Original Cannoli Donut, Donuts Delite is a bucket list destination for anyone in America calling themself a Donut Lover. They have been at it since 1958 and have had some viral donuts including the "Dr. Fauci" but if eating someone's face isn't your thing, may we recommend a "Lobster-Sized" Apple Fritter?

Rochester's number one donut shop is Ridge Donut Cafe. Locally owned and operated for 45 years this Irondequoit, and serving up breakfast all day, Ridge Donut is the definition of a mom-and-pop shop. They have a huge selection of delicious pastries and are always featuring a new seasonal treat to enjoy. For example, for the holidays they had a Sugar Cooke Donut and for Halloween, they had a Peanut butter fluff donut. You really can't go wrong at Ridge Donut but our favorite around the office is the handcut glaze!
