Definitely read about this place on the board, but never been able to check it out (the one time I tried 3:00pm on a Saturday, they were already closed).
That said, one of the folks here at work has been brining them in every week or so, and I must admit, Verna's makes amazing donuts.
The jelly, the chocolate glazed, the powdered sugar all tryly amazing. I have been a big fan of Linda's donuts in Watertown, which are also excellent, but I must admit, Verna's, though a bit on the small size, are even better.
I am tempted to provide Limsteresque descriptions of the wonders of each type of donut, but suffice to say, the are really, really good.
