Here's what some folks have posted on Google Reviews...

Sarah Cherntinski: Always great! Order ahead if you want a lot because they go fast so don't think you can get a dozen zebras without that order ahead. They go so fast and very early.

Matthew Foster: This place is the platonic ideal of an old-school doughnut shop, and a visit here is, without question, worth the detour off of I-90 or I-29. These are real doughnuts made by real bakers who clearly have a lot of respect for both their product and their customers.

Robert Beringer: We celebrate all milestones with these donuts. Birthdays it’s the giant Zebra, so amazing. These donuts are worth the trip.

Jessica: Absolutely the best donuts around. Our family's favorites are Zebras, Maple filled, glazed twists, sugar, and chocolate cake donuts. Even just the plain cake donut is really good!

Here are the best ice cream shops and stands in Sioux Falls (in no particular order).

Here is what we have so far in Wyoming. Thanks to the South Dakota Secretary of State's Office for the info:
