There is a doughnut shop and bakery in Clare, Michigan that has been in constant operation since 1896. This foundation business was within weeks of closing when the members of the Clare Police Department came to the rescue. All of them. That’s right, all nine members of the local police department banded together to save this historic business.
Dubbed “Cops and Doughnuts,” the business boasts handmade confections of all types. Join us for a warm fresh doughnut and a steaming cup of cops coffee while you enjoy the police decor and friendly, and very safe, atmosphere. Come and see the new store in Clare that everyone is talking about.

    I ordered fritters and bread from the clare store….the fritters went to colorado and were still very fresh and could be smelled (delciously)…they were very impressed with the quality and may order for themselves…the bread went to indiana and was also very fresh…I also will be using your online store again due to this experience….6 stars out of 5…yes the numbers are correct…LOVE your doughnuts

    When I am any where near Clare (or Gaylord), I always stop to buy donuts (and I am not into donuts). But I found I love the lemon squares. I bought 4 of them last time I was there and various other goodies. I’ll be back!

    I’ve only been here about 5 times, but I love the atmosphere, the food and the fun gift shop. It sure is fun looking around. The donuts are amazing and I make sure to pick up molasses cookies when I’m there. They are huge and delicious! 2 hour drive from my house, but next time I’m in the area, it’s a sure bet I’ll be back! Thank you for all you do!

    We’re from Lake City and went down for the Corvette hang out in Doherty’s parking lot. Met some really nice people. Saw some beautiful Vettes. Of course, had to go to C&D for our free coffe and picked up up doughnuts and cookies. Fun stop and cute t-shirts! ❤️
