LEE Famous Donuts Ribbon Cutting

Bill Kaiser, new owner of LEE Famous Donuts cuts the ribbon with (Left to Right) Mayor Terry Weppler, Francine Kaiser(Bill’s Wife), Pam Hume(Executive Director of MainStreet Libertyville) and Ray Mullen(Executive Director GLMV Chamber of Commerce) looking on.  Lee Donuts has undergone an upgrade, or more accurately a retro-grade, and has been converted into a 1950's style Donut and Ice Cream Shop complete with Etch-a-Sketches and Magic 8 Balls. Some things never change! We are still using the same recipe to make the great-tasting donuts you've loved for 25 years! In addition, new menu items will include Mitchell's Ice Cream, bagels, ham & cheese croissants, and Hansa Coffee which is roasted locally in Libertyville. Mitchell's Ice Cream, a South Side Chicago tradition since 1931, is also made in small batches just like Lee Donuts. Their rich flavors include: Pistachio, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Strawberry Chocolate Chip, Key Lime Sherbert, Butter Pecan, Cookie Dough, and so many more. So come on in, take a step back to simpler times, and experience all of what Lee Famous Donuts has to offer.


New Store Hours: Fri-Sat 5am-10pm & Thurs-Sun 5am-9pm.


Bill Kaiser also owns Pampered Pup'z and produces Libertyville's Dog Days of Summer.

Love Lee's! Funny Bill producing Dog Days. I bought a half dozen donuts taking my Wheaten for the ride. I then, with the dog in the back seat and the donuts on the dash, parked the car, ran into the house for 45 seconds and came back. The dog was still in the back seat. . . the donuts were gone. Impressed to this day he could eat 6 jelly/creme donuts in less than a minute, tad jealous as well.
