Super good. Super sweet. Many options. Near my house so that's a plus. I would like to try them all. Hours aren't the best for me because I go to work early. Thought they would be bigger. They are cute little donuts. Quick and fresh. Glad I stopped in a gave them a shot. More...
We found this place on our way to a cruise. It was so good! When we got back into town, we went back! The owners are so kind! They let us sample several kinds. This is a cute little location. If we lived in Seattle, it would be a regular stop. We tried the glazed, chocolate, Oreo, lemon, and the cinnamon one. Great place!!!! More...
Our family couldn't make it to the Washington state fair today so we were on the hunt for good fair food! We hit the nail right on the head with Mini The Dough-Nut! The texture of the doughnuts were amazing, but we just wish the bacon was warmed up. More...
What a gem! Fresh mini doughnuts covered in anything you can imagine, for me that was hot fudge, peanut butter sauce, and m&m's. Great location, especially if you're visiting the Des Moines pier. Can't wait to go back and try more doughnut concoctions! More...
I would eat mini donuts any day of the week, any time. These are yummy but I wouldn't necessarily say I'll be a regular due to the price and what you get.
Amazing! Made to order on the spot. The owner was super cool and gave us a sample while waiting. Donuts were so soft and the flavors we chose were all great. Apple pie was the favorite! Will definitely make the trek to come back! Which will be sooner than later. More...
They make really good mini doughnuts that you can have frosted as you like, right in front of you. The doughnuts themselves taste really good no matter which frosting or powder you choose.
Best mini donuts around
Everything is absolutely delicious, and the flavor combinations are so creative!
Love this place! Everyone must try it!!
Cute little donut shop. They have so many varieties of donuts and toppings to satisfy your sweet cravings. I just got the powdered and cinnamon sugar donuts and they were nice and hot. I would definitely make the trip to this place and eat my donuts by the water front next time. More...
The doughnuts we're amazing and the customer service was even better.
Cute little donut place! Good donuts! Kind of pricey though.
Best mini doughnuts I've ever had! I'm not a fan of chocolate, but some of their chocolate ones are really good. They're the kindest people too! Cute little donut shop!
Good place to experience the new donut craze. I have driven by the business many times so decided to stop by on a lazy Saturday afternoon. The parking was super easy and we were the only customers there so we were helped right away. The gal behind the counter was extremely passionate about the donuts and happily answered all our questions and made suggestions in most popular flavor. We picked 2 flavors: cinnamon sugar and maple glaze/bacon. She quickly made our order right in front of us, and sent us home with little to go boxes of deliciousness. Food quality: the donuts themselves were great!! The were perfectly light and crispy and still slightly warm from production. I love them! The ratio of toppings to donut was spot on. My only suggestion for the Donut Pig-Out flavor (maple glaze and bacon) would be to make the bacon super crispy. The bacon that was on the donut itself, reminded me of bacon that goes on Cobb salad- kind More...
Great spot in the local community! Glad to have finally walked in, won’t be my last
Made fresh while you wait. Hundreds of toppings. Friendly staff.
Taste awesome and soooooo fresh. Oreos were my favorite! Almost missed this awesome place.
I have loved this business since they started as a farmers market vendor. I love that they're available year round. These donuts are especially popular with my son's sleepover buddies. I get to be "That Mom" without even getting out the waffle iron. More...
Great customer service. I got free dozen donuts when I got 14 donuts with FiveStars app.
My husband had tried some mini doughnuts at our daughters school carnival and we were immediately in love! This morning we stopped by for our first in house experience. We were greeted by the friendly gentlemen behind the counter and made some small talk while looking over their many menu options. He went over a few of them with us and we went ahead and ordered. My husband got the donut my apple pie and I got donut be cheesy with strawberry glaze. Honestly though I could easily eat their donuts plain. Perfectly crispy on the outside with great density and texture. From start to finish we had a great experience and can't wait to go back to try more of their delicious options! More...
Not sure why I haven't dropped in here before. Probably because it's way too close to home and PROBABLY because I intuitively knew that it wasn't a good idea because PROBABLY I would like this place and it could PROBABLY become a habit. I ordered the 14 mini doughnuts to go. Some with powdered sugar, some with cinnamon and the rest with honey and toasted coconut. Man oh man! The bag barely made it the 7 blocks to my home. The toasted coconut were the best! Served warm and smelling like my grandmother's kitchen, these snacks were delicious. Right on the main drag of Des Moines....it's an easy place to pull over and get some treats. Their menu boasts lots of other toppings, glazes and concoctions all made with doughnuts. More...
Super delicious doughnuts! The person helping us was very friendly and open to creating whatever we wanted. I wish I could eat these every day.
Took my girls there this morning and oh my lordy, these were phenomenal!!! Fresh, warm, and melted in your mouth. Reminiscent of what fair food used to be. My 4 year old devoured a mini dozen herself! Such a lovely addition to our neighborhood. More...
This place is nothing short of amazing. It satisfies my sweet tooth a little too much. It's on the marine view drive drag and is ran by awesome people, who will fulfill my order on a "surpriseMe" request. If your in Des Moines- ignore Pac Hwy and try out this gem More...
So soft. So fluffy. So delicious!!!! The decor is really cute and (obviously) donut themed. The individual who served us was so sweet and the mini donuts tasted heavenly. We also loved their menu puns! Definitely coming back in the future. More...
A wonderful small family buisness. Delicious doughnuts made with love.....and sugar, plenty of sugar.
This is a great way to start off your day the owner is so happy all the time him and his wife it's a mom and pop shop they have all these creative concoctions that taste so good I would definitely say the mini donut is a stop if you are in Des Moines it is a must do this in the Chowder House across the street have to be the highlights of Des Moines so next time you're by stop on in have a few Donuts coffee and walk the marina
I had an office send me here and it was well worth the stop. Demone has the most fantastic selection of delicious donuts. You'll be surprised at the big flavors that come out of this little pink and white hut.
This place is great! They have a rewards system that sends you reminders that I haven't been in awhile! I've been served by 2 of the staff when I've been there and they were both the most friendliest people & I came in close to closing. The donuts were fresh and made in front of me. Served with a smile each time and they apologized for not being open when I happened to stop by on a day that they were closed. I definitely make it a habit to support this small business. More...
Oh yum this is my go to place for donuts. They're always fresh and delicious. The staff is super friendly. I ventured out of my normal powdered and opted for maple bacon glazed and I don't regret it one bite! I love to support small business. More...
If you haven't been here you really need to check it out! These are he best donuts I've ever eaten in my life! I hade the Apple pie with vanilla ice cream! The prices are great and everything was fresh upon order! Thank you for this amazing treat! More...
I usually don't review things but this spot is true. Them lil sweetie had me smiling during bites
Yum!! I was craving donuts but didn't want something massive or really sweet and heavy. I checked this place out online and the cinnamon sugar mini donuts caught my eye. I stopped by around 1:30 in the afternoon and was the only customer. I was greeted by a nice gentleman and the heavenly scent of fried dessert. I ordered the mini dozen of the cin-sug and it cost $5. Luckily they take cards, even though this is a tiny place. I waited maybe 30 seconds before I had hot, fresh, delicious mini donuts in hand. I popped one in my mouth and BOOM flavor explosion!!! Crispy crunchy soft and fluffy, perfectly dusted in an even coating of mouth watering cinnamon sugar. YUM YUM YUM. More...
amazing donut! went first time today. very very delicious. will Defenitly be back again and again. ❤❤❤❤
The cutest little doughnut spot!! There's so many options to choose from and the overall atmosphere of the place is cute and cozy. Customer service was great and the doughnuts delicious! Will definitely be coming back More...
The best fresh doughnuts around and the owners are every pleasant and personable looking for a dessert this is where to go.
OMG BEST DONUTS EVER!!! I've been saying I was going to stop here for longtime. Mmmmmgood!!! So fresh, melted in my mouth
OMG!!! If you see the open sign you have to stop. Great donuts. The guy running the place was very friendly; loved his donut glasses. Helps you select what your looking for. Its a must stop! More...
Cute mini donut shop. Like really mini, only 2 customers can fit in the shop at a time. Tons of toppings to choose from, which makes for a super super sweet treat. Definitely ticks all the boxes when you're craving fresh fried dough. More...
Awesome donuts! Great selection and friendly customer service! Mini donuts with ice cream is the best thing ever!
Perfect mix of crispy and doughy. The lady that was working at the time was very friendly and told us all about the process and how to chose from the menu. There was a lot of freedom in the topping picking spectrum of things. Mainly writing this review because I’m craving it and they’re closed. This is the closest I can get to actually having them. More...
Damn it. I didn't need to know about this place. It's so stupid good. I'm pretty sure I received more doughnuts than I paid for, which is good, because they are crack and I couldn't stop eating them. The oreo ones... with vanilla. I didn't know mini doughnuts could be this good. I wish I still didn't. I'm just glad I don't live nearby. THIS PLACE IS DANGEROUS! And completely worth it. More...
Great donuts! So many flavors! We got a taste of their donuts at an outdoor fair, hot and fresh and delicious! Unique flavors and toppings I've never had before.
This place is so cute! Went in a couple weeks ago to get doughnuts for the office! They were delicious! The service was ok though, nothing exciting. The man there didn't talk to you at all except when he took the order otherwise it was an awkward silence.. but I'd go there again. More...
Mini donuts u cant go wrong with this I ordered apple pie 8 pack and hot fudge n Reeses pieces 8 pack. And I also used uber eats for the first time with this order. I was so impressed with how hot and fresh and yummy these little donuts are. Both services were amazing and I'll be back for more soon. More...
Love this and the guy running the place. Stopped by after our picnic at Saltwater State Park and he was closing up, but still had a few left. DAMN THESE ARE GREAT DONUTS!
If you are pregnant stay away from this place !!! You will find yourself looking at pictures in the middle of the night and calculating how many more hours to let your husband sleep before asking him to bring some to you as soon as they open. We've had them twice once by Uber eats and once by husband -eats delivery and I haven't felt let down what-so-ever. But seriously who writes a Dough-Nut review in the middle of the night Dreaming of doughnuts, gem of Des Moines. More...
First time there today and it was amazing. The most delicious doughnuts I’ve had. ❤️❤️❤️
the staffs are very friendly and great snacks
I went here and WOW. It’s the small places that are always the best. Super cute and affordable! Owners are super chill. No bougie at this place.
This place is pure happiness! Great service and super yummy doughnuts.
Best doughnuts I've ever had, you can even watch them make it and they taste absolutely amazing
Kirk R L Trudeau
The are so good and the only dough-nuts I want for the rest I've my life
Love these guys. Friendly couple and great donuts! My son and I make a special trip to the Des Moines Farmer's Market just for these donuts :)
The best donuts I've had in my life, no exaggeration. Wonderful and look forward to eating again whenever I can.
Sara Kamla - Peterson

Tanya Marie Russell Crawford

Rainee Lee Tubbs
Had these at the Lake City street Fair. The best doughnuts I've ever had!!! They are really amazing. I have to find where to get more!
Theresa Braeden Fazekas
We had Mini the Dough-Nut at a staff event yesterday and I can't say enough good things about them! Everyone loved the donuts and the Mini staff were wonderful to work with. I highly recommend them!
These are by far the best little doughnuts I've ever had. I am so excited for their permanent location to open!
There is not enough good things we can list off about mini the doughnuts products! The people were kind, funny, and the doughnuts were so worth the price and quality. We love mini the doughnut and would definitely have them again. More...
Janette M Lougheed
Fresh made to order. Amazing choice to choose from. DElious����
I just had to get another half dozen! They took the time to make the donuts fresh and hand pressed! Extremely well made and the gentleman making the donuts was so kind! If you ever have the time, find them and get some! #dontjudge More...
Kelly Vu Glass
Such good, fresh donuts! Got the milkshake too. Definitely coming back soon.
Great family owned business! Tons of choices and made fresh!
Emily Lynn Paulson
Can't say enough about mini!!! So awesome at our event!!! Friendliest, most fun people ever, and the most ridiculously delicious donuts I've ever eaten! Would recommend hands down and will hire them again in a heartbeat :) More...
Amazing!! Awesome owner! Delicious donuts and lots of choices. Highly recommend �������
My granddaughter Love loved them I had one amazing thank you Mini The Dough-Nut ����
The mini peanut butter and fudge sauce .. Amazing!!
Fantastic service and treats. Try the donut shake - life changing!!
We went sledding and then decided we needed some donuts. QFC was the first thought, but I said no! We need to try the new mini donut place in Des Moines. Best decision EVER! In the words of my 4 year old " dang these are good!!" More...
Great place! Delicious donuts with a ton of fun topping choices!
Heard all about this doughnut haven on the Des Moines Community Group and had to check it out, my hubby and I were excited to find such excellent doughnuts so close to home! This might just have to become part of our weekend routine! More...
Awesome little shop. So many toppings to choose from and so organized and clean. Donuts were amazing too!!!!
My daughter got chocolate fudge and sprinkles on her minis and loved every bit of them. They were made fresh in front of us. Nothing better than hot mini donuts! This is a great addition to Des Moines. ��� More...
Powdered sugar with peanut butter drizzle. At 830 A.M. Cause it is never to early for some decadence! #gotmilk
Highly recommend this cute little place! Exceptional customer service & fresh amazing mini donuts and there shake is heaven!
I'd been meaning to try this ever since I passed by one day and saw the owner outside in his festive donut hoodie. I'm so glad I stopped in today! The donuts are made fresh and addictively delicious. Melt in your mouth! Such a fun concept of choosing your donut toppings! More...
Saw the little "open" sign at 7:00am this morning and decided to surprise my daughter by detouring in before heading to school. First of all, the gentleman running the shop was a true sight for sore eyes. I don't know if there was any part of him that wasn't decked with donuts. I really, really appreciated the enthusiasm. Those who know me know that this level of ridiculousness is enough to make me swoon HARD.
Okay, back to the donuts. I think a few people saw me pull in and realized they were open, because two customers entered immediately following me. The batter hopper was loaded up and out pops these little rings of amazingness. Watching them float through the tributary of the Great Fat River was very fun for myself and my 8 year old.
We opted for raspberry glazed and our order was splooged with a generous portion. The glaze was more like a jam - very fruity and natural tasting, which I loved.
But here's the thing. These donuts don't need no glaze. Nuh uh. These things were so good, so crispy yet cloud-like, that I could've eaten a whole three dozen plain as my white butt.
This could be the happiest I've ever been with a local business. Sorry Wally's, I love you, but you've been bumped. More...
A-MAZ-ING!!! Extremely high quality donuts made to order right before your eyes! I ordered the cinnamon sugar donuts and they were served hot and had a super tender texture. Not only is it hands down the BEST donut I've ever had but the owner/operator was incredibly friendly and welcoming. My mom and I chatted with him while our doughnuts were frying and afterwards quickly left to make room in the tiny building for the other 3 customers who entered after us. I took my first bite as we walked to the car and immediately turned around to go back and buy more. I knew after one bite I wasn't going to want to share lol. It makes me so happy to find a local food establishment that takes this much pride in their products and services. Mini The Dogh-Nut just made one more loyal customer!! More...
At first I though your doughnuts were just too small. But then I watched our grand-kids eating them!! They (and my Wife and I) love them!! They are small gooie treats that are easy for the kids to handle. We have been back many times already!
Phil and Paula ~ More...
We’ve been wanting to come here since it opened, and finally got to stop in to this cute little shop today! We definitely weren’t disappointed! It’s my son’s new favorite place and the gentleman running it was so friendly and in my son’s opinion “he is very cool!” Love it! More...
These little doughnuts are the absolute best 'munchies' there is!!! I could eat 2 dozen of them easily, by myself! They're so savory and with just the right amount of sweetness makes them sooo freakin' good. These are a 'must-try' for anyone who loves sweets of any kind. Go to the spot and load up! More...
Moniqueka S. Barkus-Thrower
Okay, these little bites of fat girl heaven got me speechless AND they don't skimp on the toppings! I will be back..like everyday.
#yummy #fatgirlhappy #freshandhot
5 STARS ALL ACROSS THE BOARD!!!! Doughnuts are cooked to perfection, some of the best doughnuts I've ever had, and the customer service was outstanding! I will definitely be a consistent customer. More...
Delicious doughnuts!! By far the best I've ever had! I ran into this place while taking my kids to summer camp. It's a cute little shop right by the marina in Des Moines. The customer service is awesome and makes me want to return for sure! More...
Omg. This is place is awesome!! Different variety of donuts flavor! I cant get enough of it. I'm planning to try all their flavors!! I will post more picture!! Yummmm!!! More...
Terri Sumpter Ferguson
Fun Food. Innovative idea. Very friendly owner. Saw a visit to this business on facebook and looked interesting. Local so decided to visit and pleasantly surprised. Mini donoughts with many different toppings. Melt in your mouth and hard to eat just one. Good value in pricing. More...
I came here because my work relocated to Des Moines from Renton, so I thought I should give this a shot. Yoooooo!!!!!! This place is the bomb! I brought my kids and little brother and we were in for a surprise. We came around 4pm, no crowd, no waiting. About 4:30ish they started to get busy. Round 1: My daughter got the Dough Nut Judge Me, my son got the Dough Nut Sweet (half plain and half cinnamon-sugar) and my brother got the Dough Nut Sundae with Nutella and fudge. Round 2: my daughter got the Dough Nut Apple Pie and my brother got another Dough Nut Sundae with Nutella and strawberries with 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream and 2 strawberry shakes with 4 plain dough nuts topping it off. I didn't get anything bc I wanted to be the taste tester lol. This place served it! The doughnuts were fresh! It melted the ice cream, but still oh-so good! You guys have to try this place out. The portions are just right for the average and health conscious person, but if you're big bone and young and living life, then you might wanna go for Round 2 or 3 or 4. I'm going to go back tomorrow. Lol. Everything was freshly made in front of us. Nice little spot outside to chill and eat some freakin bomb donuts. My daughter said these are WAAAYYYYYYYYYY better than Legendary Donuts! I have to concur. I would say even better than Voodoo Donuts. Best donuts I've ever had. More...
SOOO GOOD. Closest thing to "fair food" without having to go to the fair. Great customer service!
The owner is super friendly food is fresh and it taste good, it's clean and organize inside the donut shop and the prices are reasonable.
Amazing!!! Flavor and tastes Great! On a rainy Friday me and the teens got to stop in a fun shop. Watch donuts being made right in front of you and handcrafted - if your not a sweet tooth just ask to go lite on toppings. Comparable prices plus all toppings. More...
My first time here and I love it! Donuts are made fresh and I wasn't able to catch the name of the guy preparing my donuts, but he was very friendly. A variety of donuts to choose from, but I got the plain and cinnamon sugar ones. They taste so fresh and delicious. Will be going back soon. More...
Very yummy and fresh out of the fryer! One was topped with caramel and white chocolate and the other was topped with cinnamon and let me tell you they did not skimp on the toppings! We will be going back! This was s great treat and we wish you much success in Des Moines!! More...
I forgot I had a potluck today, but easily was welcomed after a quick visit at this stand. Friendly dude, he was like a bartender but with doughnuts. He made 4 dozen perfect bite size doughnuts (Cinnamon) and 14 Boston Crème, under what felt like 10 minutes tops. I'm glad my family told me to try out this place. Sorry I meant to take a picture, but everything was gone before I knew it. More...
This place is great! We had lots of fun picking out flavors, and I think I'd prefer it over a classic donut shop. So much to choose from! The guy working was super friendly and helpful which made the experience that much better. We will be back for sure. More...
Excellent Donuts they fry him right there in front of you as you wait only takes a couple minutes. They are a little bit pricey but well worth it!
Amaze!!! So delicious!! Bought 8 and then upped it to 14 before even paying they tasted so good :) Best donut ever!!
delicious donuts. seriously so good, try them. the donut man was parked outside of the ice rink in renton highlands. was not disapointed at all.
I really hope this place stays. It is a treat everyone should try. The mini doughnuts are delicious and the toppings and drizzles can get you creative. You cannot get fresher as they are made while you wait. More...
Such a cute little place. Went in with my two little boys today and they got exactly what they wanted, so many toppings to choose from and everything was super organized and clean! Donuts were tasty and a perfect little treat!!! More...
This is my FAVORITE new donut place in Des Moines (Not that I ever had one) but this guy is an entrepreneur with a product that won't quit! I Love this place, love the donuts, love the owner! Stop in and I promise you will NOT be sorry! More...
Donuts are fresh and amazing. Seriously. When you order them, they're made right in front of you. We mainly came for the "Dough-nut Do The Shake" after seeing it on FB, and got a Mini Dozen of the "Dough-nut Be Glazed" with apple pie filling Too. Super nice and friendly service is always a great cherry on top too. More...
Fantastic donuts! Creative toppings and the owner, Damone, is awesome! Cooked right there in front of you. Great addition to Des Moines!!
A-MAZ-ING!!! Extremely high quality donuts made to order right before your eyes! I ordered the cinnamon sugar donuts and they were served hot and had a super tender texture.

It makes me so happy to find a local food establishment that takes this much pride in their products and services. Mini The Donut just made one more loyal customer!! More...
The best doughnuts ever! If you have ever gone to Pike Place in the market- these are similar but better! There's ton of topping options- we did maple, cinnamon and sugar, and nerds with vanilla glaze for my toddler. They were soft on the inside with a little crunch around the edges and hot! He made them right there, fresh while we waited. More...
So as a self proclaimed doughnut connoisseur, I was naturally obligated to whip my car off the street and check out the new mini doughnut spot in Des Moines on the main drag. It did not disappoint. Lots of selection, reasonable prices and scrumptious doughnuts. Definitely check them out - you will not be disappointed. They're reminiscent of the little doughnuts at Pike Place Market but with more options More...
Okay, these little bites of fat girl heaven got me speechless AND they don't skimp on the toppings! I will be back..like everyday. #yummy #fatgirlhappy #freshandhot
Best mini doughnuts ever and the guy is super nice!! Always love the doughnut jacket too! Thank you!!
Mini and beautiful food truck. The donuts are very cute~ There are many flavor to choose. I recommended the powder sugar,sweet ~
Next level doughnuts. Easily the best cake doughnut I've ever had. Incredibly moist and great customer service. Highly recommend.
These doughnuts are yummy! Melt in your mouth delicious. The food truck itself and staff are fun and the menu is very unique. Definitely recommend this food truck! More...
These little doughnuts are the absolute best 'munchies' there is!!! I could eat 2 dozen of them easy.
