REVIEWS OF Lil Donut Factory IN Ohio

Tami Smith

I love this place! Best donuts in Columbus!

Cherie Khumprakob

Wonderfully perfect donuts! All the classics, with fun new recipes mixed in. Our absolute favorite donut place in Columbus!

Aja Dumas

There is a reason this shop has 5 stars! It's a cool little spot, delicious donuts with good variety. The owner is always kind. My little girls and i stop in once or twice a month to bring donuts to their grandma (three generations of love for this place), and even when they're taking their sweet time deciding he is patient. Also, the coffee its phenomenal. I'm glad he got large cups!

John Thompson

Superb donuts with a reasonable price! Expanded hours and they appear to not run out in the morning as they used to.

Chad Tassin

Simply the best donut shop in town. Great selection, friendly staff and good coffee. Come early as they sell out fast.


Not from around Hilliard. Was in the neighborhood getting gas and saw this shop, so we decided to stop in and see what they had to offer. Loved all the music posters, the Simpsons memorabilia, the Superman photos, etc. The donut holes were fantastic! Freshest donuts I've ever experienced. Will definitely have to make a habit of stopping out there now and again!

Justin Sauber

This Donut shop is small in size but large in customer service. My last visit the line was wrapped around the store. The employee fulfilling customer orders never stopped moving and filled all orders in a timely fashion. At this frantic pace he still managed to treat each customer as if the were the only ones in the store. On top of the great customer service the donuts are delicious. I highly recommend the maple bacon Donut.

Tonya Watkins

I love this place great Donuts excellent customer service. I decided to stop in this morning only to realize too late my money was in a different wallet at home after I enjoyed the Balloon Fest in Cincinnati last night so for all of you and decided to get donuts please enjoy one for me FYI they do not take Apple pay or any beam pay

Zac W

Selection was slim when I got there and it only had been open for an hour. Donuts were good and fresh

J DeWitt

Sweet Jesus I would definitely recommend their blueberry donut to any blueberry lover out there (inserts heavenly sounds from the sky). You might think the white powder covering the donut came from Columbia, but no worries, it's just powdered sugar, and the blueberry filling, yeah its just that good.

Levi Wilson

Nice little place with fresh donuts

Sarah Mercier

One of the best donut places in Columbus by far, and the owners are such nice people. Love this place!!

Allison Kristoff

Awesome coffee and awesome donuts, staff fun and friendly. Laid back atmosphere& kid friendly

Amy Fox

Now my mornings are more difficult as I try to resist the pull of a perfect cup of coffee at Coffee Mess inside this place as well as the yummy donuts! Best coffee and donuts in Hilliard.

Keith Caldwell

Packs a lot of delicious into a small shop. A large selection of freshly-made donuts. The staff is very laid back and helpful. Coming here for special occasions is now a staple for my family. Always a line of people waiting for it to open.

Mark & Carrie L

Decided to try their donuts because it was nearby. Friendly professional service. Check them out for sure

Micah Mcglone

Friendly service and amazing doughnuts, my kids love this place and so do I. Very easy and quick when getting stuff from here as well, would suggest this place to any doughnut lover.

Harry Kamdar

The best apple fritters in C-bus area! Cozy little place with a good variety of donuts and friendly service.

BuDKiLLeR7 ps4gamer7

Best doughnuts in hilliard

Douglas Plummer

Great small independent store

Mitch Snyder

Quaint little donut shop.

Michael Salsbury

Good donuts and coffee

Nirodh Jithoo

Best donuts in Columbus!!


Outstanding donuts. Best you'll find in Hilliard for sure, probably better than most in Columbus. Owner is a just chill guy on top of that. Support your local businesses! I really appreciate how he prices them which may sound odd. Half-dozen is $5. No tax calculations. Just hand the man 5 bucks and you're good. That's a smart business move by the owner which really I appreciate.

Alex Cleveland

The doughnut are fantastic and the service is even better

Adrian Valera

Great people, even better donuts!

Ryan Nickell

Awesome little shop with album art, stadium photos and movie posters on the walls!

David Thornton

Great donuts and the staff are great

Steven Myers

Awesome stuff. Cinnamon rolls, Bear Claws, Boston Creme my favorites.

MJ Lindamood

Great little donut and coffee shop. Love the Red Velvet cake donut. Coffee is brewed on location and the brewer is very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Ron Wallace

These donuts are AWESOME!!! Always Fresh, not to heavy, and the service is spot on. Definitely NOT a chain donut. I love them!! They often sell out, so others must love them too!

Matt Warner

A spectacular donut shop with great coffee. My favorite in Columbus area including all the suburbs.

chad tassin

Great local business with the best donuts

Angela Smith

I stop here probably once a week to treat the office. Everyone here is amazing. I'm not articulate enough to give the multitude of kind sentimate they should hear. Very deserving of my patronage.

tony randall

Did not make it in time to partake was sold out.

Kimber Haas

We literally live less than a mile from this shop and cannot get enough of their tasty, fresh donuts. Weekday, or weekend, make sure to get there no later than 9am, because their selections sell out FAST!! If you think of it, call in your order a day ahead and they will have your order ready for your arrival, The staff is great and always friendly, even when you're struggling through a slloooow selection of what you want, because your having a mind melt to just not order 1 ea of everything!! But, been getting our donuts from these guys since they opened, which if I remember correctly, they opened in 2008 at this location. We also really appreciate their on-going support to the Hilliard community.

Ashlie Frazier

Fantastic fresh doughnuts and very friendly people! I love the selection! There is always something new!

Eric Shalosky

Delicious fresh tasting donuts. Great little coffee shop inside as well.

Dawn Fudd

Fast, friendly service from a locally owned and operated donut shop. Not to mention their amazing donuts are always tasty. My favorite are the Apple fritters. The geeky decor and Bernie signs are a plus.

Stacy Clark

The coffee was really incredible! Donuts were good too!

Danielle Ashbrook

Great donuts, with a friendly owner. Get there early because they do sell out! You can put in an advance order and Jordan will set aside what you want.

Kessashun Arthur

This place has a huge variety of donuts with new and rotating flavors quite often. The cake donuts have an amazing texture with a nice outer crunch; the raised donuts are nice and fluffy. Their cream fillings/toppings are what impress me the most. You can never go wrong trying one of their signature "bloops" or buckeye donut. I recommend getting there early to have the best selection available. Lil Donut Factory has great service and is all around great place!

Sam Croarkin

Swanky decor, tasty donuts, awesome coffee. If you're not impressed by the sheer variety of donuts, then the fresh taste will win you over. No donuts? No problem! The owners run a coffee shop in the store where they roast all of their own coffee and can whip up any specialty drink you can want. Still not satisfied? Drink in the nostalgic posters and memorabilia (all donut related of course) and even play a concert if you're so inclined. The apple fritter is probably the best traditional fritter in Columbus. It was fresh, apple-y, cakey, and just the right amount of sweet.

Troy Carlson

It probably adds another 15-20 minutes to my morning commute if I have stop in here to grab some donuts in the morning. I totally don't mind. Worth the extra drive to get the glazed sour cream donuts, the apple fritters or the maple frosted long john's. (Those are my favorites, at least) The service is always super friendly. I think the only complaint I've had in the past is that the coffee is only adequate, but recently that's changed, as another guy has set up shop in the back of the store from time to time selling what I think is home roasted coffee, rather than what's usually brewed. It's been hit or miss, but usually it's pretty good! I'd love to see these two local businesses team up so I can stop and get the best donuts in town and still leave with a really good cup of coffee with which to wash them down!

James Gant

Best Donuts in Columbus! The staff is fantastic and really care about the community and what is going on.

Robin Shah

We found this place after some searching, really small place but their donuts are fresh and good variety. They are tasty and one of a kind. You can even order in advance.

Cari Dombrowski-Stork

I love this place. They always have a good donut selection, but make sure to go early. Apple fritters are amazing.

Scott Peachey

They absolutely have some of the best donuts I've ever had in my life. The owner and the staff are outstanding, super personable and very willing to help out. If I could give ten Stars I would.

Laura Dennison

Absolutely delicious and fresh! Wonderful variety of unique donuts at an amazing price! Yes, they're practically giving these gems away! Looking forward to trying the house roasted coffee next trip! Heard it's terrific!

Kelly Johnston

Delicious, fresh and full of flavor

Jacob Pierre

Very good donut shop. They always have a different coffee when you come in. One of my favorite coffee shops with great donuts! I had a sour cream donut and a long John which were both awesome.

Daelann F

Just visited for the first time and they had almost sold out of donuts so they gave us a few for free. We will definitely be back and earlier so we can get our selection.

Ben Smith

Super friendly owner and staff. Amazing doughnuts!

V Gall

Best donuts in Columbus, hands down. I have had DK Diner, Buckeye, Der Dutchman donuts but nothing compares to Lil Donut Factory. Friendly service, excellent donuts. Go there now!

Renea Dunmire

Tim, Jordan and their staff are always helpful and friendly! Best coffee and donuts in town

Mike Eddington

Great variety, small bakery feel, excellent service, best tasting donuts around!

Andrew Foster

Favorite donut shop in Columbus. I hate when people try to get fancy and the base donut sucks. Not here, everything from the traditional glaze is done right

Nathan Van Allen

Great place! Wonderful donuts and coffee, staff is always friendly. Just make sure you get there early on the weekends because they can sell out quickly.

Kevin Dickens

Friendly Staff, delicious coffee, tasty donuts. What more could you ask for?

E'yen A. Gardner

Was pleasantly surprised by this donut shop. Affordable prices but most importantly great donuts. If you are in the Hillard area you will not be disappointed with their glaze donut or pumpkin glazed donut. Update: Sour cream cake donut is really good.

Aislin Marue

Love this place. The owner is such a nice man and the donuts are fantastic. They sell out pretty quickly, but that just shows you how awesome they are. Highly recommend.

Angelina Creighton

Service was nice and fast, the donuts were okay, but not the best

Jason Bragdon

Great donuts, if you get there early enough.

John Lammers

Great, tasty donuts! Get there early, they are known to sell out because they're so good!

Nick Bolen

Friendly staff greeted us right at the door. Super welcoming, delicious coffee and good price on donuts. Definitely a worthwhile stop with tons of information about the Hilliard area!

Brian Thomas

Best donuts around!

Brett Nydegger

The Lil Donut Factory is my favorite place to get donuts. They are freshly baked the day of and are delicious. This place is locally owned and the owner is very nice and provides great service. They also have a great selection.

Angela Holland

Was a great find on our donut expedition

Justin Sligh

This is bonkers. Really nice attentive staff, really bad donuts. Not worth it at all.

Melissa Espina

Yummy donuts!

Carrie Woods

Today is Father's day and the Little Donut Factory is open until 1pm. We went in at 9:30am excited to have dad try the donuts! They had maybe 15 donuts and only 3 different types. The woman said sorry that's all for today guys....I am confused as to why they would be open until 1 with only that amount of donuts. We drove 30 minutes for nothing! It did let us find another donut shop that had a variety and isnt a chain, so at least that happened! I will review their donuts once we try them!!

ryan denomme

I have been a regular customer here for a handful of years now, getting a dozen every week or two for work. Always a great selection and friendly owner. Unfortunately will not be back due to today's experience of being completely ignored while they helped a customer that came in after I had been waiting in line already. At least the person running the coffee portion of the shop acknowledged me and asked if I wanted anything. Best part of the experience was while getting into my car after promptly leaving once the above situation happened I was given a look and a shoulder shrug. Not what I would have ever expected after being such a long time customer.

Jarrod Miller

Great doughnuts and solid price. The apple frittersbwere the best thing I grabbed. The long johns werent as filled as I prefer, but the fruit filled doughnut was great as well.

Mike Mac

Wonderful donuts. Great small business to support.

Adrian Riley

Always great for a easy morning breakfast. Friendly staff and my kid always loves to pick out all the donuts! Thank you.

Tom Shutt

Friendly, neighborhood vibe... Great donuts and good coffee

Trina Osborne

I absolutely love these donuts!!!! The owner and the few employee's he has are very friendly and inviting

Richard Gatliff

Best donuts in Hilliard. Better get there early though as a store closes when the days Supply runs out.

Jason Kent

Great daily made donuts! Awesome staff.

Josh Winkler

I have been going here since they opened and they are the best donuts, bar none. I have a friend who is comes down from Delaware to get then when it's his turn at work.

Boris Bencic


Tim Johnson

Chocolate Custard Crushed Oreo!!! Say what!? The reviews aren't even close to how amazing these donuts are! But don't let me focus on just that single donut because it's unfair to the rest of the donuts. The selection was great, so great I couldn't wait to eat them and neither could my kids, hence the half eaten box.

Lunch Bucket

I feel like I am in "The Twilight Zone" as it appears everyone else is transfixed by this place. Only one chance to make a first impression, both in service and product. Proprietor failed on both counts. No other customers there when I arrived. I chatted with a fella perhaps for 30-60 seconds when the other guy interrupted, asking in a flat tone if I was going to order. I did, then left. I suppose I was hoping it would be like the soup guy in "Seinfeld" where you endured a less then stellar experience for an amazing product (after all, everyone else seems to love the place); but, was disappointed with the donuts themselves, too. So I give it two stars to give the benefit of the doubt, and maybe proprietor was having a bad day.

Jake Vogel

Can't ask for much more from a donut factory! Timely, delicious, affordable and plenty of options. Great spot to go to surprise co-workers, just make sure you call ahead, if possible. I believe only a limited number of donuts are made each day, so don't ruin everyone else's day and call the day before.

charles hammond

Best local donut shop, no need to leave hilliard for a quality donut.

James Ellison

Closed at 10am, so i bought Little Debbie snack at the Dairy Mart next

Rodney Burmeister

Great little place with great donuts.

David Parrish

Good doughnuts, but what really enhanced my visit was the coffee. The guy roasts it himself, so it's nice and fresh.

Jonathan Hartlaub

BEST donuts ever. You've gotta get there early or order ahead though because they WILL run out, and they only make enough for each day. 100% worth it though. 11/10 would go again.

Erika Lane

Discovered this awesome lil place through our running group. Best place to get freshly baked, delicious donuts! Can’t beat the price either! One of Hilliard’s many best kept secrets.

Megan Brown nydegger

Great Donuts! Love the Apple Fritters. Come early because when they sell out they close up! We love to patron local businesses.

Austin Yingling

Absolutely amazing donuts at an incredible price, I would say hands down the top donut shop I've ever been too. You have to do yourself a favor and try this place!

Liza Lewis

This place is awesome. The owner is super nice and said you can always leave a message for an order. Thanks for making my Friday start off great!!!

Olesea Basarab

Great people and good coffee

Eddie Rovnak

I’ve been here a few times now. I can’t say anything I don’t like about this place. The staff is extremely polite and courteous. The prices are really good. They have above average donuts for the price (half dozen is only $5.50) and the place is clean and enjoyable. I end up going there roughly once a month to have a cheat meal and this may be the pinnacle of a donut place in Columbus in my eyes.

Kat B414

Best donuts, and coffee hands down!!! The owners are delightful as well!

Jason White

Really good donuts. You will not be disappointed. They don't have the selection that some of the other places do, but less is more here because every donut they have was fresh and delicious. There is a reason this is the highest rated donut place in Columbus right now.

j white

Superior selection of delectable doughnuts with friendly service. You had better not dawdle, however; these tasty treats sell out with a quickness!

Brian Horrocks

Awesome donuts! My absolute favorite in Columbus and with a friendly neighborhood feel. Make sure you get there early because he's going to sell out!

Paul Buchholz

Awesome Donuts

John McCarty

Best donuts!

Steve Thayer

Great donuts. Need to separate peanut donuts on the racks for people with allergies. They were touching or to close to other donuts.

Kody Robertson

Great donuts... Apple fritter and Bacon Bourbon my favorite

Mike Alverson

10 years of the best coffee & donuts in Columbus! One of those local gems that we were so happy to find 7 years ago when we moved to this side of town. If you are eating that Tim Horton's slop or grocery store donuts and have never been to a real donut shop, then you owe it to yourself to get on down to the Donut Factory this morning! P.S. they sell out every day, if you sleep in then make sure to call ahead and ask them to save a box ☺️

Joshua Obelenus

Get there early! (Or just call Jordan and have him hold you some) His donuts are always tasty and his selection is quite large for a small shop. The flavors range from the old standards to the unique (like the Buckeye doughnut, or the maple bacon doughnut, both are excellent) The interior is set up nicely with little quirks, like comics to read if you are waiting in line, or posters to study while you eat one on the go. He also has coffee and milk, both pair nicely with doughnuts. Updated: He has partnered with a coffee company called The Coffee Mess. This place roasts, brews, and serves one heck of a good cup of coffee. Give them a try, it pairs well with the donuts.

Matthew Brookbank

Awesome doughnuts and friendly service! So fresh and delicious! Be prepared to wait a little bit though, their line can be long. People love them!

Jesse Snodgrass

Awesome Donuts. Super friendly staff

Mike Tumeo

Great staff Great donuts the owner is a Great person who give it an 110 percent

Bimo Wijoyo

Awesome donuts and awesome service! We got there at 9:30 on a Saturday and they were out already. Seeing how disappointed we were, the donuts we purchased were on the house! They just got a new regular customer!

Tiffany Wise

Nice donut place. Tons of girl scout cookie don't choices. Delicious donuts made fresh daily, but once they are gone they close for the day. Coffee is delicious too, says my husband.

Pablo Silva

Great donuts. I live in Florida and come up to Ohio once a year to visit family. I always make sure I get my morning donut fix at this donut shop. Make sure you get there early though, donuts go fast.

Kevin Basham

This place is awesome!! great donuts!!

Jerome Burns

They have a great selection of confections and they know how to make a mean cup of joe.

Ashley Anderson

Absolute best donut shop! You couldn't ask for better homemade donuts and outstanding customer service!! It's the kind of place you stop by weekly and tell all of your friends and family about it!!

Randi Breibach

First time have your donuts and they were excellant.

Angelo Serra

Best donuts on the west side of Columbus. Hand-made in store daily, great coffee shop partner in the same space. Locally owned and the owner works there so daily. Great variety, good prices, and great conversation, even if it only a snippet while you are in line.

Laura Whitlow

I’m not the biggest donut fan but I heard good things so decided to give it a try. Hands down the best donut I’ve ever tasted. My whole family was impressed. Staff was super friendly too.

Jay McChesney

I am donut person, I have been to many places, until I discovered the Little Donut Factory around two years ago.. I am amazed by that because of amazing staff there. Delicious donut, reasonable price, and amazing staff deserves a 5-star!

Tennessee Smith

Been getting my donut fix here since Jordan bought the place about 10 years ago. Love the donut selection!

Erin Slattery

Hair in our donut ☹️

Joel Loiacono

Best donuts in the area.

Amy Riedel

My favorite donuts in Columbus! Friendly, quick, and SO GOOD. Especially the cake and filled ones.

Patrick Mayer

Amazing. We have tried this place a couple of times now and the food is always great! This will become a new weekend spot for us for sure.

John N.

Great prices and the best donuts I have ever had anywhere. I go at least biweekly.

Beth Murphy

I can see why this place has appeal. It’s local and homey and the staff is friendly. But I came for the donuts and the donut just wasn’t good. (Got the chocolate one). I wanted to like this place but left feeling a little let down.

Angela Cassner

Good service but selection was limited the time were went. If we'd gotten the earlier in the day we must likely would have had a better selection.

Joe Potato

Great donuts, good coffee and plenty of comic book memorabilia on the walls.

Surly Ermine

A couple of guys making quality doughnuts and coffee. Friendly with a homey atmosphere. Enjoyed the comic-art and rock posters as well.

Eddie Caplan

Delicious coffee, great conversation. It's so hard to find good coffee when traveling, and such a pleasure to find a great coffee Oasis. Donuts are good too! Highly recommend!

Ian Schambach

People there were great. Very cute place. Donuts were good but expectations were too high and they didn't wow.

Amanda Prall

The best doughnuts by the nicest people! There is a reason why this place frequently sells out of doughnuts so get them while you can. They have added evening hours and selections to help offset when they do sell out and I have taken advantage of this grabbing up some doughnuts for the next day. You can also call in an order, which I’ve also done, to make sure I get the doughnuts I want for special occasions. And finally, there is also a nice coffee counter here as well: The Coffee Mess, which I have sampled their drip coffee and can say it was very good. It’s an all-around friendly place with great doughnuts and coffee and my favorites are their apple fritters and sour cream cake doughnuts!

Douglas Williams

Fantastic donuts and coffee. Always a good conversation.

Brian Chivers

Great unique donuts, and classics as well. The coffee shop inside is so-so, but the donuts are hard to beat

Eddie Canales

Really good donuts at a great small business. I haven't found a better donut shop in Columbus yet. The Boston Cream tasted like none I've ever tasted.

Terence Jones

Fantastic as always, be sure to get there early

Kathleen McCutcheon

I've been hearing about the Lil Donut Factory on Scioto Darby Road in Hilliard for quite some time and decided to bring in a few dozen of their donuts for a work celebration. WOW - the best donuts ever! One of my co-workers even described them as life changing!
