    Donuts and iced coffee make for a pretty "balanced" breakfast. Their chocolate donut is solid

    Excellent donuts! When they realized we were out of town, they gave us some free donuts!

    Good, cheap diner food. Yes to donuts. No to coffee. The garlic broccoli omelette has a ton of cheese.

    Breakfast sandwiches

    Grabbed an apple turnover to go. The pie crust was flaky and filled with fresh spiced apples. It was delicious... until I found a bug baked into it.

    Sausage, egg, & cheese on wheat is on point

    No $6 battery acid here; only the best $2.50 medium coffee this side of town, if you like it sweet. Dirt cheap breakfasts, unexpectedly sublime croissants, and Level Up payable.

    If you're in the mood for a donut, I usually go for the chocolate glazed or something that has filling. When aiming for those flavors, Twin Donuts has never missed.

    Get there by 10 for a nice breakfast. Get there by noon for mob rush

    The croissants are out of this world. Best I've ever had in Boston. Their ice coffee is ridiculously sweet -- unless you like it that way, pass on it and stick with the croissant!

    coffee sucks past 12pm but the ladies are lovely and they make good donuts

    This place is an Allston institution. Get there early for the glazed donuts while they're still warm. Read more

    Gotta try the Black Raspberry doughnut!

    Can't beat this Allston greasy spoon fixture for dirt cheap eggs, bacon, and grease to soak up last night's booze. Love us some Twin Donuts. Read more

    You have to try the croissants! They're the best in town.

    Combo #3 is perfect for any meal of the day!

    $2 egg & cheese on an english muffin - best breakfast sandwich deal going

    Get a honey whole wheat bagel, you'll be happy!

    Always get the croissant breakfast sandwich after an all-night drive from NYC. The croissants are huge and satisfying.

    Egg&cheese + croissant + salt & pepper * (ice coffee + milk + sugar) = deliciousness

    Get the iced coffee! It might be about 500 calories but it's delicious.

    Haley F · February 16, 2011

    surprisingly lively at 4 in the morning and the donuts are fresh.

    Jay Simms · December 31, 2010
  • Jarrett E.

    This place has good breakfast, but they don't make their own donuts. If you want to know where they come from, you aren't far off. Take a walk down the street and go to Cafe Mirror.

    Jarrett Enck · September 28, 2010
  • Stephanie M.

    The chocolate frosted donuts are to die for! Get an egg sandwich too, but watch out the sausage ones tend to be very greasey!

    Food is awesome, get the #2 combo. The coffe sucks, go to Dunks next door

    Oddly enough, Twin Donuts has some of the best croissants in the greater Boston area.

    Jay Miner · July 1, 2009
  • Daniel C.

    Sit at the tall round table with strangers and order one of the combos. You will not go hungry.
