Visit This Little Donut Shop In Minnesota For The Best Apple Fritters Of Your Life
What’s better than dessert? If you have a sweet tooth, you might be thinking that
nothing could beat a sugary treat made just for you. However, there is at least one thing better: dessert for breakfast. A gas station donut might satisfy the craving in a pinch, but they are nothing compared to what you can get at a proper donut shop. In the Twin Cities, there’s a little shop that makes amazing donuts – including out-of-this-world delicious apple fritters – that will have you forgetting all about your morning convenience store ritual.
Granny Donuts in West St. Paul has been around for almost 30 years.
The owners, Xuan To and Que Banh, opened up shop when they arrived from Vietnam three decades ago.
The couple has worked every single day since opening. That is their dedication to providing locals with their sweet breakfast fix.
And those in the know have returned their loyalty in kind. Many regulars have frequented Granny Donut for years.
And why shouldn’t they? Granny Donuts combines a cozy atmosphere with fantastic pastries.

One fun feature of Granny Donut is the window that looks into the kitchen. If you show up at the right time, you can watch donuts being made.
But we’re here for the donuts. When you step into the store, you will be greeted by a donut case featuring a wide variety of colorful donuts.
Whether you want a classic glazed, chocolate with sprinkles, or a tasty cruller, you’ll satisfy your craving here.
Seriously, there are so many fantastic choices. It's easy to get overwhelmed.
But if you’re a first time visitor, you may want to start off with what is arguably Granny’s best donut: the ever-popular apple fritter.
Crispy on the outside and soft and appley in the middle, these huge treats are 100% necessary if you want to fully experience Granny Donut in all its glory.
Apple fritters are super popular at Granny Donuts, but all of the donuts are worth trying. Most are a dollar or less, so you can try a few for just a couple bucks. But be warned - Granny Donuts only accepts cash. Find the shop at 1555 Robert Street South in West St. Paul. They are open Monday through Friday 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
