Al's Donuts (Plainfield, IN)

311 W Main St (US-40), Plainfield, IN 46168, T: 317-838-8694

I pass Al's Donuts every day to work, but it either isn't open or I am in too big a hurry to stop. Today I finally had time and found it open, at 9.15 AM. Turns out, I was just in time, as Al's is open from 2.30 till 9.30 AM. I don't know how, but they do enough business during these ghastly hours, as the shop looked plundered.

I ordered one regular glazed, one chocolate covered and cream filled, and a special apple spice(all together just under $3). The donuts are not very big, but fresh and very tasty. The original was airy and a bit chewy, the Bavarian-style had a great cream filling, not too sweet or sour, while the apple spice was dense and hearty but with a maple glaze.

VERDICT: 91/100
Al's Donuts makes fresh old-school donuts, which are among the best I have had. Unfortunately, they close by the time I get out of the house.

  1. We just had Al's again this morning. I used to take my mother to work at 4:45am and they were open. I would stop and get donuts and take them to work as a treat for my co workers. I just happened to be up and out and about at 7:50 this morning. I got the long john with the white cream filling, a jelly, and regular glazed yeast. I haven't found anywhere the cream tastes this good in a donut. It's sweet like a cream should be but has a slight salty bite I love.
