How do you beat coffee and donuts?

In Westfield, that’s a hard question to answer, especially with the addition of Paul’s Donuts & Coffee.Paul’s Donuts & Coffee That’s the question owner Paul Lingeman responds with when you ask why another donut shop in Westfield.

“It just all sort of happened,” he says. “I searched for locations (in Central Indiana) for about nine months before I found the location we’re in now, which is perfect for us with the drive-thru.”

Lingeman spent most of his life working in health care, but during the pandemic he started to think about what else he’d want to do. Years ago, he had the idea to open a donut shop, and it took the pandemic for him to finally put everything together and go for the dream.

“I knew I needed to either do it now, or don’t do it at all,” he says.

Paul’s Donuts & Coffee opened in the old Little Caesar’s location and Lingeman has been amazed by the reaction from the community.

Paul’s Donuts & Coffee“Westfield is just growing so much, and everything is wonderful around here,”he says. “I couldn’t be in a better place, and we look forward to returning the favor by becoming more involved in the community and the schools very soon.”

Everything is made in-store each day, and while most think donuts can add on the pounds, Lingeman suggests trying to make them first and be rewarded for the workout later.

“The first month we were open, I was in there every night starting at midnight to help make the donuts. I had no idea how physical it is to make donuts,” he says. “Our crew works nonstop all night.”

Paul’s Donuts & Coffee prides itself on offering something different each day, in hopes of catering to changing tastes and new visitors. Summer specialty drinks such as the Coconut Macaroon Cream Freezer are still customer favorites.
