Ellie’s Old Fashioned Doughnuts

Owner/baker Danny Tassone founded Ellie’s Old Fashioned Doughnuts in 2010. Danny comes from an Upstate New York family with decades of experience in the high-quality grocery, farming, and food business.

Ellie’s Old Fashioned Doughnuts is dedicated to serving the Middle Tennessee area, and beyond, with high-quality ingredients that satisfy the sweet tooth!

We serve a variety of old fashioned cake doughnuts, which are always freshly made on location! To complete the old fashioned experience, we serve Ellie’s Organic Coffee, our special organic blend that’s good enough to dunk in!!

Whether you enjoy something out of the ordinary, like our Pumpkin or Blueberry Pancake Doughnuts, or just something simple like our Classic Original Doughnuts coated in sugar/cinnamon, every bite harkens back to a time when American foods thrived on high-quality/no-compromise ingredients.

Our high-quality standards and clean-cut mentality make Ellie’s Old Fashioned Doughnuts the perfect compliment for wedding celebrations, business parties, or other special events. Our catering options include freshly made, on location service, or pre-order delivery/pickup.

You can find our Mobile Bakery producing fresh, high quality, unique, and delicious doughnuts every Saturday, year-round, at the Franklin Farmers’ Market!

Ellie’s Old Fashioned Doughnuts can also be found serving our “Sweet Babies”, our take on the mini doughnut, at all of the Franklin Street Festivals, as well as other festivals and fundraisers in the Middle Tennessee area.

  • The best! - Rating: 5/5

    Believe it or not, Danny’s vegan donuts are every bit as good as the non-vegan ones…actually I prefer them. I would go out of the way to purchase these and share them with folks who haven’t discovered what a treasure Ellie’s donuts are! Danny is a great guy, full of integrity and always smiling!

  • Ellie's - Rating: 5/5

    Ellie’s Doughnuts are the reason I go to the Franklin Farmers Market. They are the only donut I will eat, and my family is in love with them. They even freeze great, so buy a dozen extra for when you want to share with someone during the week, because if you dont, they will be eaten before Monday morning rolls around.
