We randomly stopped in here and it was the best decision ever!!!! All of the employees were so friendly and helpful! They answered all of our questions and accommodated my special diet needs. The ice cream and donuts were delicious and fresh. I recommend this place to everyone!

Hads down best donuts ever! And the staff is amazing. How can you beat having fresh made to order donuts? TRY THE BEAST, OMG sooo goood! ?


Super yummy donuts. Love the selection! Great locally owned spot. It's awesome to be able to support a local business that also has fantastic food!

Delicious, yummy donut! Tried the apple pie, husband got a banana creme. I love that I can also create my own flavor/topping.


Found this little diamond in the desert in February and am amazed at how crazy good these fresh, made-to-order donuts are! You will never get bored with the same old same old cuz they have so many toppings & drizzles to choose from and if you can’t decide then pick from the wall - so many choices and flavor combinations!!! Oh, and they now offer gluten-free donuts. Their new hours are 7 am - 4 pm everyday!

These are the BEST donuts ever. I ordered 3 boxes of mini donuts for a celebration and everyone raved about how good they were! We couldn't stop eating them. Desert Donuts is also a very charitable organization. They provide donuts to the Trevor's Vision Charity every week which provides meals to the homeless population in Phoenix. Very happy with Desert Donuts.


This is definitely a place worth stopping to check out conveniently located off the I-17 and Carefree Hwy. Perfect for a stop out of the valley and heading up North out of this heat! The staff is enthusiastic and welcoming. The fresh, warm desserts are mouth watering delicious! There are so many varieties of toppings to choose from from sweet to savory to spicy! Each bite is like a playground in your mouth, especially the Poppin' Patriot Donut with Pop Rocks! I'll definitely be back to try the breakfast donut with eggs and bacon and also the donut batter hot dogs! Wow!!

I absolutely loved this donut shop. I was traveling back to Phoenix from Prescott for an early flight and happened to stumble on this gem when I was in search of coffee. They had just opened at 7 am and I was the first customer of the day. Monica handmade me three donuts, one that I had on the spot and the other two I brought home to NYC to share with my wife and child. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in the area!

I wanted to try it. They were good. Got the Beast', it was just ok. I didn't think it had enough toppings to be called The Beast. Also got a key lime donut, that was REALLY good. It was crispy and tangy. It's expensive for a single donut , they start at over $3 each. The Beast was $5+

I hate the times, why would you close at 1pm I get out of school at 2:15 and most people get out of work late. I think the prices are outrageous, $3 for a doughnut and it’s not even big. I’ve been coming to dessert donuts since it was owned by a friend and that was when I was 6 years old, I’m sad to see this is what has happened. Yes they are goo but they are barely topped, small , expensive and no one has time to get them between the 7-1:00pm schedule. Fix this.

I can’t say enough good words about this place. I don’t come often to this area but when I do I always try to stop by. Delicious freshly made donuts, fantastic customer service, very kind and welcoming owner. Donuts look and taste amazing, I highly recommend giving them a chance! I bring them to my clients and everyone is impressed and loves them. They make and decorate donuts in front of you so you know they are freshly made!

Absolutely the best custom made yummiest donuts EVER!! One of the best donuts I have had. Specially when they are all warm and gooey. They do an amazing job, their staff is polite and always wearing a smile. Store is kept clean. I will definitely be going back.

Decided for donuts and coffee and this place was just a bit around the corner from us.Made fresh with many customs choices. About as close to home made as can be without the mess or overhead.Got classic plain and a delightful raspberry. Was a bit disappointed that while crispy and fresh but too dough in the center. Actually our two donuts were just already made, they should / could have asked us and than made the donut especially since they say fresh and wasn't like their was a crowd. May give them another chance...Wow also a place I can come for a scoop of icecream,
