Loyless Donuts

6789 E US Highway 84

Cowarts, AL 36312

It’s almost a caricature of a bygone era: small-town mom & pop institution where the food is far superior yet much simpler than anything made at the big box giants. The small-town is Cowarts, a town outside of Dothan; you’ll find Loyless on the side of Highway 86 underneath towering pine trees. The mom & pop are Eva and Garland Loyless, and their hand-rolled, hand-cut, hand-iced donuts are made every morning.
