Here’s Where You Will Find The Best Donuts In Buffalo

on August 26, 2013

Paulas Donuts Close UpThere are few quintessentially American treats, and none quite like the sweet and doughy deliciousness that is the donut. When you are in the Buffalo area, you won’t want to miss the well-known, decadent version baked at Paula’s Donuts.

Since 1996, Paula’s has been providing large (think soft-ball sized!), hand-baked, old fashioned donuts. There are over 30 different kinds of flavours – even some combinations beyond your wildest sugary dreams: key lime, red velvet, peanut and jelly, maple-frosted, black forest, strawberries and cream, yum!

As any good donut shop would, Paula’s Donuts also serves other pastries, breakfast sandwiches and bagels, and a variety of coffee drinks both hot and cold. And they also have even bigger donut-shaped cakes for special occasions! Birthday donut, anyone?

Paula’s decadent donuts are such a favourite with both locals and travelers, the spot has had top reviews for years on user-generated review websites like trip advisor (where they are currently ranked #2 out of over 800 restaurants in Buffalo), yelp, and urbanspoon. Definitely a long-time favorite with customers!

There are two locations for Paula’s Donuts. The main location was until recently on Kenmore Avenue, but has now moved to a NEW location at 2319 Sheridan Drive, Tonawanda NY. There is a second location at 8560 Main Street, Clarence NY.


  • Sheridan Drive (Tonawanda): 5am-9pm daily
  • Main Street (Clarence): Sunday-Tuesday 5am-7pm, Wednesday-Saturday: 5am-9pm
