Ask a Walpole, Mass., resident
about Country Kitchen Donuts & Coffee, and you'll always hear a
Set amidst a world of highly
competitive donut chains, Country Kitchen Donuts has remained
independent for nearly 50 years and, ultimately, beloved by local
residents and those from outside Walpole lucky enough to make the
discovery of a down-to-earth, authentic donut shop from yesteryear.
Country Kitchen offers downright
delicious donuts, New England Coffee and an excellent variety of baked
goods like crullers, danishes, turnovers, coffee rolls, whoopie pies,
muffins and New England Coffee. Our personal favorite include the
traditional chocolate, jelly and cream-filled donuts and the large
blueberry, coffee cake, and cranberry muffins. Country Kitchen truly
follows the ultimate tenet of successful, authentic traditional
donut-making: bake early on a
daily basis. The donuts -- and everything else -- have a truly
fresh-from-the-kitchen taste. The proof is in your mouth starting to
water upon entering the premises!
This sweet Walpole landmark is especially packed in the morning -- at
the take-out line and at the long counter with stools and the several
booths. The whole scene looks like some out of a "Saturday Evening Post"
Normal Rockwell cover where the local conversation and coffee flow with equal
Service is typically
old-fashioned New England with salt-of-the-earth middle-aged and older
employees -- including lifelong Walpole resident Madeline at a youthful
82-years-old -- and some younger staff that is efficient and
bucks the latest customer service trends by showing some personality.
Country Kitchen is set within a
friendly, know-everyone-by-name setting -- typical for Walpole, a
southwest Boston suburb that has remarkably held on to its small town
feel with plenty of "townie" restaurants, an independently owned drug
store, nice town village green, farms mixed with large neighborhood
lots, and 14 percent unused land.
Country Kitchen Donuts is the perfect family, trucker and business person's stop and gets our vote, along with Kane's in Saugus, as the best Boston area donut shop. As mentioned, be prepared for a wait early in the morning, as Country Kitchen Donuts is not exactly a hidden secret. The wait, however, is worth it as one bite into the fresh donuts will have you putting the Paleo Diet on hold.
