Butler County Donut Trail adds new shop


Ohio’s first and only doughnut trail has added a delectable Middletown shop to its lineup.

Central Pastry will join Milton’s Donuts, 3533 Roosevelt Blvd., as the two Middletown shops on the popular attraction that highlights small, family-run doughnut shops and invites visitors to explore Butler County through doughnuts.

Featured Donut Trail locations represent a combined 306 years of doughnut-making experience and have been featured in publications nationwide, including NBC News and Country Living, according to the Butler County Visitors Bureau.

“Central Pastry Shop is thrilled to be on the Donut Trail,” Vera Slamka, owner of Central Pastry Shop, said in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming all of this year’s participants.”

To date, more than 5,500 visitors from 40 states and six countries have completed all stops on the Donut Trail, according to the Butler County Visitors Bureau.

Mark Hecquet, executive director of the Butler County Visitors Bureau, said the Donut Trail has been a “tremendous success.”

“This year we have decided to expand the trail to make it even more fun for visitors,” Hecquet said in a statement. “Locally-owned and featuring a wide array of doughnut choices, Central Pastry Shop is a good addition outside of the original group of shops. We welcome them to the trail.”

Visitors can experience the Donut Trail by collecting secret codes at each stop and filling in an official passport. Once complete, each passport can be redeemed for a complimentary Donut Trail T-shirt.

The other eight Butler County Donut Trail locations are:

  • Jupiter Coffee & Donuts, 5353 Dixie Highway, Fairfield
  • Kelly’s Bakery, 1335 Main St., Hamilton
  • Martin’s Donuts, 4 W. State St., Trenton
  • Mimi’s Donuts & Bakery, 2267 Millvile Ave., Hamilton
  • Oxford Doughnut Shoppe, 120 S. Locust St., Oxford
  • Ross Bakery, 1051 Eaton Ave., Hamilton or 4421 Hamilton-Cleves Road, Hamilton
  • Stan the Donut Man, 7967 Cincinnati Dayton Road, West Chester Twp.
  • The Donut Spot, 5148 Pleasant Ave., Fairfield
