Gates Donut Shop is a family-owned bakery established by Jack Gates in 1939. Jack started making donuts and cookies over 85 years ago, proudly serving the Corpus Christi area. Fast forward to today, Jack's great grandson, Aaron is heir to the donut kingdom and runs the shop in the same building on S. Alameda Street.
World famous since 1939, the Gates Donuts crew starts making delicious goodies before sunrise so you can stop by as early as 6 am to get what you need to start your day off right. Serving everything from traditional glazed donuts to our signature maple bacon bars, kolaches and iced cookies, you'll never leave our shop hungry.
Bring some donuts, kolaches, cookies and other sweet and savory goodies from Gates Donuts to your next event, or special order our amazing iced cookies for the holidays -- they make incredible gifts!
Throughout the year, we'll make themed holiday cookies, and you can order a dozen or four anytime. We can also make custom cookies in pretty much any style, as long as we have a pattern or cookie cutter for it. And yes, you can bring us yours to use!
