      FRIED..They way a decent donut should be ...crispy golden ..my first time visit..will return to try the different varieties..had the apple fritter and dipped maple..daughter had the Boston creme ..daughter tested , mother approved

        Fried!!! I am so there!!

        1. re: petek

          "Baked" doughnuts are technically not doughnuts at all, but just round cakes or muffins with a hole.

        2. lol, I'll check that out. That's right next to "Icy Spicy Fusion."

          1. oooh.. 24 hours? Hooray!
            Do they offer any other goodies? What about coffee/drinks?

              Yes..Coffee,drinks, sandwiches..a regular customer had suggested we try the coffee..we were in a hurry..so I will be back to try more of the cuisine

            2. Open 24 hours and made fresh daily is perfect.
              What hours do they dish out the freshest?

                definitely not at 1:00 am...lol. we went last night immediately after seeing this post and we were pretty disappointed as they were dry and a bit stale. that said, we appreciated that the donuts were not overly sweet. we will go back another day in the morning to see if they are better then.

              2. How long has this place been around?

                  I saw a review that says they've been around for 22 years! I guess I just don't get to that area much at all. Here is that review: http://www.yelp.ca/biz/the-donut-fact...

                    The thought of the Donut Factory being reviewed is almost more than I can deal with!!!!!!!!!!!!

                      LOL, though I pass it almost every day, I hadn't considered going in until this thread.

                2. I've seen this place and have wondered if it's any good. I'm not in the area much but will have to make a point of stopping.

                  1. Okay. Got a sugar-glazed and maple-glazed. Donuts are only okay - I feel like they're more solid than I like. Looks like they do make them on-site - though I only saw the giant mixer drying in the back.

                    It's like stepping back in time, going in there.

                    1. There was an article in the Toronto Star today asking what the next "cupcake" will be. There is mention there that OMG Baked Goodness and Sweet Escapes are doing fresh donuts on the weekends:

                      I just took a quick glance at article, not sure if other fresh donut places are mentioned
