Sandra's Bakery in Sanford,NC

Anyone know anything about Sandra's in Sanford? I'm told that their doughnuts are head and shoulders better than KrispyKreme and Dunkin Donuts. Before I drive down from Raleigh I'd like to get some opinions. They don't have a website so it's hard to find out anything about them. Thanks

  1. Where is this? I'd love to give it a try!

    Do you know of any other good donut places in the triangle
    region? Not Krispy Kreme or Dunkin, but local type places?

      2. I live in Sanford and love, love, love Sandra's. The donuts are fresh, yummy, and varied. Their bear claws are the best I have ever had, and they have awesome muffins. I am definitley NOT a morning person, but I get up early at least once or twice per month to stop by Sandra's on my way to work. When you consider I have to be at work at 7:30, and live an hour from work, well, that means I have to get up at OH MY GOD IT'S EARLY to get to Sandra's but it is totally worth it. They are only open from 5:30 or 6 until about 2:30 or 3, I think, so if you are soming from Raleigh, be sure to get here early. While you are in Sanford, there are some great antique places and coffee shops in the same area as Sandra's, and be sure to take the time to notice the brickwork on the old buildings.

        1. I made it to Sandra's yesterday. The doughnuts completely lived up to my expectations! I'm always after good doughnuts - not Krisy Kreme or Dunkin - and this is just the place. It's very down home. They don't have seating inside, so we took our doughnuts and wandered the streets of Sanford eating doughnuts. Coffee was so-so. I'll look for any opportunities to return. (I'm up around Chapel Hill)
