I go to Snowflake in Boerne every Saturday, and it is incredible. Donuts and kolaches are top notch and their ham/cheese/jalapeño croissant is one of the best things I have ever had! I know of the one in San Antonio and another in Kerrville as well, but I haven't been to those locations.

I went to 'The Original Donut Shop' this morning. The donuts are awesome but I could do without the rude employees.

I drive past it every Saturday, and it just looks like a doggone good donut shop!

Where is this donut shop, Matt?

May I suggest you let the owner/operator/manager know of the rudeness you experienced, since Dunkin Donuts is starting to make a presence in SA, his/her shop runs the risk of going out of business if rudeness keeps the customers away.

It is on Fredericksburg road near the Restaurant Depot store.

I seriously doubt Dunkin Donuts will have much of an impact on this business because they also sell tacos. They are also well known for their tacos.

They aren't excessively rude but certainly not friendly. Depends who is working. Their employees are like grumpy Abuelas.

The Original Donut and Taco place usually has a line extending out onto the road. I am with MattTX, I doubt DD hurts them. They serve their donuts hot and fresh, like Shipley's does. I've never eaten their tacos but the donuts are great. I don't recall the service sucking, though, but I don't ever hold out much hope for polite drive thru people unless I'm at Chick Fil A.

I didn't realize there was one actually in S.A., thanks for the tip.
I seem to remember that they have good kolaches too.
On that note, there is a really good small coffee shop in Ingram, TX, called Spirit Wind Java. Excellent Texas Pecan coffee, pastries, and donuts. Small town/ local owner feel to it as well. Can't be beat.
