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.

This diner has been around for 40 years. Friendly staff and great selection of big, yummy donuts.
Donut Villa Diner was great! I loved the vibe and the food was fantastic!
Loved it, aside from the fact that I didn’t actually get to use my nift gift because they couldn’t take it after giving me the bill
The food was great. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I will be back.
I've been going to Donut Villa for decades; it's been nice to see it renovated and modernized, while still keeping the great food and good service it's always had.
It was great food and great service!
Friendly service at the front counter. Lots of fun donut flavors to choose from and we enjoyed all of them! Plan to go back to try brunch!

The food at donut villa was amazing
Great food & service Thanks
Food was great! Donuts are spectacular! Very clean with friendly service.
I have never been to donut villa before but I had a great experience! I was able to try 6 different types of donuts with my friend and we LOVED them! I shared the donuts with other friends too, and we all can’t wait to come back!
What a great find this was. Wonderful breakfast. Will return. Thanks.
Great food and portions, service was as expected - wasn’t thrilled they don’t take names for those waiting - would go again if near Malden
I ordered the eggs, home fries and toast and it was delicious! The service was wonderful, a true mom & pop feel!
Great donuts and breakfast. The staff was fun.
Great food and terrific service! Highly recommended!
The eggs, bacon and donuts were really tasty. The bagel was also good but a bit softer than I like. The potatoes could’ve been cooked more.
Great place. Good donuts, customer service.
It was great!
Bustling, solid breakfast spot.
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!
Good service, food was goos as well. They did forget my pancakes though. Staff was nice and welcoming. Overall good experience and I would go back.
Very friendly service. Delicious donuts. Yummy waffles with fruit!
Fantastic food and service. Will definitely be back!
Loved the gluten free donut options! Best GF donuts I’ve had.
A welcoming, comfortably familiar place with a friendly, attentive staff, and a good breakfast. You'll enjoy your visit.
The donuts were awesome, especially the PB&J and Maple Bacon, as was the Donut Benedict. We loved this diner and are so grateful that our coupon through Nift introduced us to this place!
Donuts were yummy, staff was friendly
redeemed for donuts and they were very tasty!
Service was swift and friendly, and the quality of the donuts is worth double what they charge. Though we only snagged donuts, I would be happy to return to try their expansive breakfast menu!
Classic diner atmosphere with much more interesting than classic food. Donuts are delicious!!
Food was fantastic and reasonably priced. Definitely recommending!
I will come back!!
Excellent food and service!
The staff is great, very friendly.
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).
First time here, I'll be back, everything was fresh, donuts were what they should be, flavorful, moist and large.
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'.
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.
The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. It's a nice place to go after working out at the gym next door
Tasty food, & super friendly service! Thank you!
Brought the donuts to a party and was a complete hit!
Great service and delicious food! Would definitely go back!
Friendly service and yummy donuts. Will try breakfast next time.
Great Donuts !
I live up the street and always thought this was just a donut shop. Well, I was totally wrong. Best breakfast ever!!
Wonderful. Will definitely be back!
Very comfy place.. fast service!!
We loved the donuts and the BeLT sandwich, and appreciated the great service. Also, gluten free donuts, hello! Delicious.
Nice place, very friendly people and fresh yummy 😋 donuts. Definitely will come other day
I bought donuts and coffee rolls. They were a huge hit at home. Will definitely go back and try breakfast

Good and affordable food. Got there too late to try a donut, but I've heard they're fantastic.
Good food and service. Will go again.
New favorite breakfast spot!
We loved this place - and will totally be going back!
Breakfast sandwiches and fonts are delicious, and the service was great!
Just went for donuts but they were delicious! Good parking in the plaza, too.
Great prices, friendly staff, delicious food! Donuts are amazing
I had a great experience. It was also great to try a new place in my community. Nift is a great way to find and most important to support local businesses.
Ordered a dozen donuts and I enjoyed them all!
Poor service but good food
5 it was nice, not too busy easy parking good prices
I loved my nift card!
Great place and the donuts are exceptionally delicious!
Great selection, just drive past Dunkin Donuts!
I love this unpretentious place. Good and satisfying home-style cooked food & nice servers
The cashiers was very friendly. Food was delicious and will be back for more. Thank you ! <3
Fresh and delicious!
Donuts are delicious!
Great food, great value, very friendly staff
Food was great. Staff was great. I don’t think I ever would have stopped in had it not been for nift. Now it’s on my radar and can’t wait to go back!
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.
We live close, but have never been. Glad we finally made it in and will definitely be back!
Great place, happy to have discovered it!! Friendly, affordable and most importantly, delicious!!!
Very nice breakfast
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.
Breakfast and service was great.
Great donuts. Much better than the major donut chain that is right near them,
Great little diner tucked away in a strip mall. Great food and staff, we got a few donuts after brunch which were amazing!
We love donut Villa, awesome donuts and awesome staff. A definite bargain!
The donuts were amazing. Everyone at the office loved them!
Everyone is always very friendly and nice and the food is good.
A real neighborhood diner. My omelet was great and the donuts are fantastic.
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.
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.
Friendly staff, bright and clean and a great breakfast.
It was fantastic! Great place for donuts
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!
Donut Villa was great. Good service and tasty food. Glad I went!
Donut Villa donuts are lightyears ahead of that Dunkin out front.
Very friendly service, good value, and a unique, local product!
Throw back diner with great food.
5. Friendly service, lots of healthy menu options and good prices for huge portions.
Everything was great!
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
Great little spot, so glad I found it through Nift!
I got the greek omelette and the portion was huge! Staffs were friendly, will definitely return!
Food was great! Thank you. We will be back.
Awesome customer service with great people!
We had a great experience! Thank you for this gem :)
It was great; My Lox Bagel needed capers and red onions, but aside from that it was good.
Incredible breakfast creations. Delicious and very reasonable.
Breakfast was delicious! The donuts were too. Really cute and homey place. The staff was also incredible.
