A family-owned and operated donut shop in the Historic Empire District. Owners, Cat & Charlie Staton, offer up a variety of fresh donuts daily, as well as great local coffee and other beverages.
These were some of the best glazed, yet light tasting, donuts that I have ever eaten. I made a point of stopping by before leaving town to take some home for family. Friendly staff and I look forward to stopping by again.
Travelling through to Florence, I was looking to stop in Coos Bay for an hour or so and didn't want to grab a sit-down breakfast with family. I searched on Yelp and found Empire Donuts, and grabbed a dozen for a family of 5. The donuts were fresh and still a little warm; my family noted the cake-donuts as exceptional; not heavy on the icing and crafted with care. We grabbed some coffee there, took the dozen box about 3 miles to the Coos Bay Boardwalk, and took in the morning action at the convenient picnic tables. We had some jealous passerbyes eyeing our lovely breakfast treats. Empire Donuts is a nice neighborhood bakery - but get there early! Our 10am visit had one Bavarian Creme left (I snagged it!) Delicious.
Great Little Bakery
Very nice bakery with a wonderful assortment of pastries. Besides regular donuts, they have Marionberry fritters, cream filled Bismarks & more. Try their delicious Blueberry & Cream Cheese Turnover! They also serve Biscuits & Gravy and have a great selection of coffee types. Check out their fresh baked breads too. Very friendly staff & ample parking available on the street.
