Clean Plate Recommendation

Madison County

Dunkin'® Donuts

10055 Memorial Pkwy SW Suite B, Huntsville, AL 35803

Score: 99

The morning staple has been at this location for five years under the leadership of general manager Steven Harper.

He and his team of roughly 20 employees say they are dedicated to keeping a clean space for their delicious treats.

Of course, 'donut' is in the name and their selection of round pastries are meant to satisfy all sweet seeking palates.

Right now they're featuring a Hershey's cookies and cream donut and are whipping up Caramel Craze lattes.

But for those looking for something savory -- they have bagel and croissants ready to enjoy plain or as a sandwich.

Like a well-seasoned sausage egg and cheese.

We saw lots of attention to detail and big smiles for customers.
