Best Doughnut Shop and Owners!

So I was down at the beach, by myself, with my two dogs. After asking if I was allowed to bring them in, the owner's wife said no (totally understandable) then she offered to watch them for me while I went inside and ordered! It was the nicest thing ever. Then the cashier (Peter, I believe?) was... read more

I had been told this was the place to go, that they had the best donuts ever, and they were right. The service was amazing, the owners were very friendly and quick. The donuts are made when you order so they are hot and delicious. Must go!

Fractured Prune makes all of the Best Donuts in the Country lists and there's a good reason why. These donuts are insanely good and fun! The basics: They only do cake donuts. No yeast donuts, no jelly donuts, no danish. Cake donuts. The freshest, tenderest, most lovely cake donuts you've ever pushed into your donut hole. The insanity: They take... More

This is a great place for donuts, there are tons of choices!! Almost too many to pick just one dozen. The only drawback is the expense, but they are a nice treat!!

We love the fractured prune where you can view a very odd combination of Instant made donuts and quirky atmosphere ( not unusual for Rehoboth ) and enjoy yourself with a real good cup of coffee or other drink that they make. I cant keep my mother out of this place!

Excellent hot donuts, no waiting during the week, and a quirky atmosphere will make you remember and come back for more. Made hot and instantly with their donut machine.

I was so excited to try their donuts. I love that the flavors are unique; the donuts are made to order; and you can create your own. It is a great idea. The service was excellent. They are very friendly and suggested that I eat with a fork since the donuts will be messy. The donuts were so pretty (see... More

Stopped here spontaneously and was thrilled to find that these donuts are made while you wait and you can create your own. Options include: banana cream pie, blackberry cobbler, caramel bliss, carnival, French toast, key lime, margarita, pebble beach, salted caramel, strawberry shortcake, just to name a few. In less than 2 mins., your donut comes out of the deep... More

We needed donuts for twenty people on a Sunday morning and called ahead. With our brunch carefully planned --we counted on our order being hot and ready at the promised time. We were so thrilled to have such terrific service. Every donut was perfect and exactly what we ordered. A hot hand-dipped donut may not be everyone's favorite, but honestly,... More
