For over 40 years, we’ve perfected the warm, melt-in-your-mouth, finger-licking, homemade donut. We’re all about keeping the tradition: we’ll always be carrying the torch that the previous owner John held for decades, believing in making brunch the best part of your day. To us, it’s that simple: our goal is to make your belly happy 7 days a week. So, this isn’t just Donut Villa, it’s Donut Villa Diner. Our new menu now includes authentic Belgium Waffles and homemade New York-style bagels, hearty hash and Benny’s from scratch, and everything in between. By keeping some of the old and bringing in some of the new, we’ll always be a family-operated diner ready to serve the city of Malden and beyond. ​ We’ve learned that there’s no tradition like family. When you get husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, and friends working together, you get a lot of bickering, but this also means we’ll give you a unique and unforgettable brunch experience that reflects our 50+ years of diner experience.

Donut Villa was fantastic! The food was phenomenal and our waitress was the shining star. She was busy but never lost her sense of humor and took care of all of her customers with a smile. This will definitely be heavily added into the breakfast rotation!

Shelby, August 31, 2019

Great food!

Tara, July 14, 2019

The staff is great, very friendly.

PHILIP, July 14, 2019

The donuts are good however the selection is scarce. My whole purpose of going there was to try Nutella donuts. There were 2 left so I asked for them. I could only get one because the other person came up and grabbed it (although I already asked for it).

Leslie, July 11, 2019

First time here, I'll be back, everything was fresh, donuts were what they should be, flavorful, moist and large.

Janine, July 9, 2019

Most of the donuts were too sweet for me, but I like that it feels far more mom&pop small business than the other hipster donut shops in Somerville/Cambridge. Also way better and shorter lines than at the neighboring Dunkin'.

Angie, July 9, 2019

This diner is adorable! I never would have known that it was there had I not received a Nift gift card. I’m so glad I did as the food was delicious and so reasonably priced! The staff there are super friendly and helpful and I love the atmosphere of the diner. I will definitely come back, and next time with friends! I definitely recommend the Donut Villa Diner.

Constance, July 4, 2019

The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. It's a nice place to go after working out at the gym next door

Allison, March 26, 2019

Quality diner food, good service. Small restaurant though so often have to wait for a table or seat at the counter if you arrive during the breakfast rush.

Amy, March 25, 2019

We live close, but have never been. Glad we finally made it in and will definitely be back!

Bryan, February 25, 2019

Sahar, February 19, 2019

So delicious!!!

Lauren, February 10, 2019

Very nice breakfast

JANE, February 7, 2019

The housemade corned beef hash was excellent. The home fries were seasoned and sans skin and that's a plus. my over easy eggs was cooked a bit unevenly with one being a bit snotty. The toast was cold when being buttered so the butter didn't melt.

Peter, February 2, 2019

Breakfast and service was great.

Marie, February 1, 2019

Great donuts. Much better than the major donut chain that is right near them,

Mitch, January 28, 2019

Great little diner tucked away in a strip mall. Great food and staff, we got a few donuts after brunch which were amazing!

Donut Villa Dinner is a warm, comfortable place with delicious food, friendly service and really tasty donuts! It's a little bit old school, full of local folks. I'm glad to have discovered it, and I will certainly go back.

Anne, January 11, 2019

Friendly staff and helpful in selecting our donuts, but some of the donuts seemed a bit stale. Overall the favors were good, but they didn't seem as fresh as we were expecting. We were at the shop a bit before 11am on a Sunday when there were still plenty of donuts still available.

Brian, January 7, 2019

Friendly staff, bright and clean and a great breakfast.

Joan, January 6, 2019

It was fantastic! Great place for donuts

Kim, December 31, 2018

Really cute place! I got the steak tips dinner, which was great. I visited the diner around 1pm and they were out of doughnuts. I'll need to stop by earlier to try them!

Menatallah, December 20, 2018

Kate, November 3, 2018

Everything was great!

Caitlin, October 28, 2018

Super nice staff! Very helpful and were just really pleasant to talk to. I got some donuts and they were light and fluffy and very delicious. It was clear eating it that these are donuts that are made fresh and not just frozen and packed away (It also was so light that it didn't even seem fried!) 5/5 would recommend

Luca, October 26, 2018

Great little spot, so glad I found it through Nift!

Jyothi, September 21, 2018

Incredible breakfast creations. Delicious and very reasonable.
