Spalding's Bakery

We've found the best donuts in Lexington and we're excited to tell you about them.  Unlike some breakfast options, donuts at Spalding's Bakery don't require a payday loan.  In fact two of us loaded up for less than $5 total. 

These handmade donuts have been frying up since 1929 when Mr. & Mrs. Spalding began selling them from their home on Rand Avenue in Lexington.  Their business quickly grew as they settled into a new bakery at 6th Street & Limestone for the next 70 years.  Now the bakery can be found on Winchester Rd, still in the hands of the Spalding family and producing the most popular donuts in town.

When we arrived there was a line, but it moves quickly.  You'll find yourself leaving hungry if you don't bring some money.  THEY DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS, DEBIT CARDS, OR CHECKS .. <<BRING CASH>>. 

While in line, try to peek in the glass counter to see what they still have but also be sure to look at the shelves behind the counter to see what's back there too.  Not only will you see several common variations of the breakfast donut but they also have cakes and dinner rolls.  If you don't see something just ask.  If you get anything, and I mean this sincerely, you must try the glazed donuts.  One bite of the Spalding glazed donut and you'll throw rocks at Dunkin and Krispy Kreme when you drive past them.

If you're reading this post and its within the bakery hours (Wed-Sat 6:30am until Noon, Sun 7am until Noon), then first go down and "like" this post, tweet about it (follow us on Twitter while you're there) then grab some cash and go get some awesome donuts.

In fact, we're going back right now ....
