And now a word about HoneyDip Donuts…

Hours:

Monday to Wednesday 5 AM to 9 PM

Sunday – Closes at 2 PM.

I do not crave donuts very often – but when I do – this is the only place I think of. Honey Dip is just a basic donut shop – nothing (and no one) fancy. There are about 25-30 varieties of donuts as well as some muffins and cookies. The regulars come in for coffee and lottery tickets.

Pumpkin donuts

The sign says it all – the pumpkin donuts are customer favorites. I really like the chocolate iced cruellers, the glazed old fashoned, and the whole wheat varieties.

One of my favorite holiday memories involves Honey Dip Donuts. It was the night before Thanksgiving (in 1986). We walked in when the shop was closing for the holiday weekend. As it turned out, they were giving donuts away since they were going to be closed for three days. We each took a couple boxes. Mix in a pint of chocolate milk, a long night and 6-8 donuts and I was not doing so well 2 hours later. I went back the following three Thanksgiving Eves but the magical donut giveaway never happened again.

So…. is it donut or doughnut????

    OMG Honey Dip Donuts is my absolute fav. I used to live in Grove City, and the Jolly Pirate donuts down there is the same place, under a different name. Now that I live in Grandview, whenever I crave donuts I make the trek to the Honey Dip on Kenny Rd. My favs are the simple Honey Dipped and the Sugar Raised. Yummmmm.

  2. Have you ever tried Buckeye Donuts? one on osu campus and one on south high. Also very delicious donuts! my fav is the powdered sugared custard filled.
