Hidden Gems: Simply Done Donuts, a quaint sweet spot in Tampa

Simply Done Donuts is the purveyor of sweet and savory cake donuts in the city of Tampa. The concept first arrived here in the summer of 2019 in the former home of Mini Doughnut Factory, and then the pandemic happened. The ownership behind Simply Done worked tenaciously to fore relationships in the community, bring sweetness wherever they could, and now, several years in, they’ve become a staple morning spot for so many in the city.

The Simply Done team has been in the donut business for year; they’ve operated out of Georgia for more than 6 years at this point. They’re famous for their vibrant Pop Rocks covered cotton candy donuts, and their every revolving list of specials. Whether it’s fresh strawberries, or a lemon poppy seed glaze, they know how to bring out top tier Florida flavors.


Catering is also available. This local sweet shop has crafted elegant donut towers for their customers in the past. Simply Done also partnered with Three Tree Coffee Roasters to bring you coffee with a purpose (and great taste!). TTCR uses artisan roasted specialty coffee to impact the world in 3 ways.

“I love donuts so much in fact that it was the first word I ever spoke as a child. Seriously! That should tell you how much pride and hard work I put into making a damn good donut,” writes owner Lee Kearney. “we make our cake-style mini donuts using high-quality dough and pile them up with your choice of fun toppings like Butterfinger, Oreo, fruits, cereals, and loads more.”

Simply Done’s number one bestseller is the Apple Pie, and that’s music to my New England heart. Their very first donut wagon was launched back in 2015. At that time, they were roaming the streets of Atlanta.
