Paula’s Donuts is a family-owned and -operated business that was established in 1996. Every day, their hand-cut donuts are baked fresh on the premises of their three Western New York locations: Tonawanda, Clarence, and West Seneca. With over thirty varieties of donuts and baked goods prepared the old-fashioned way, Paula’s is always made with love.
We curate a seasonal menu of coffees and espresso from the quality-focused and single-origin roasters at Overwinter Coffee. Their beans express dynamic flavors unique to their origins, which we strive to highlight through advanced brewing techniques to bring out both their sweetness and complexity. Roasted locally, and with a new storefront in downtown, we are proud to partner with who we believe has the beans to beat in Buffalo. Accessibility is key to our mission, and Roots Coffee and Tea is first and foremost a place where anyone can get a great cup of coffee.
Ashker’s uses the freshest ingredients, prepared with care. Because treating the community like family fuels happy, healthy growth.
