If you are in rehoboth beach do not miss going to fractured prune!!! Owners are sweet friendly people. Donuts are fresh and unique! Don't get too worried about the long line these people hustle and it moves quickly.

It takes a lot to wake up a vacationing 11-year-old. But all we needed to say this morning was that we were headed to the Fractured Prune. These are not donuts made hours earlier and stacked in a bin. These are deliciously warm, and you pick the toppings. There's bound to be a line, but it moves fairly quickly. Also,... More

You'll be happy to stand in line for a few minutes so that you can decide among the glaze and topping choices. Each donut is prepared to order, and each bite is better than the last. If you like donuts, you'll love the Fractured Prune. Now if they could only make the coffee as great as the donuts!

Great donuts...I was a little intimidated when we walked in the first time....there are so many choices. Warm donuts and all kinds of coatings. We planned to stop there on our way out of Rehoboth and I guess everyone else had the same idea as the line was out the door....Try them!

We were not familiar with this donut shoppe & were told to try it. Yummy & different. You choose the type of glaze and toppings or go for one of their recommended combinations. Warm cake donuts always served. I went @ 7am on a weekday with no problem but have heard there can be a line out the door.

Fractured Prune donuts are tradition on our visits to the Rehoboth-Dewey area. They are hot and fresh, made while you wait and watch. We like trying all the flavors, so we go at least twice during our weekly visits; getting a variety of donuts and slicing them for everyone to try. I never knew there could be so many varieties...

We discovered the donuts at Fractured Prune several years ago while vacationing in the area. There are so many varieties that you need a menu to be able to select your favorites. We buy a dozen of all different types and divide them among us; we all take a slice of each one. The donuts are at their very best... More

The 'Prune is a unique, fresh, clean, friendly stop on your way to the beach. Just after the 1st exit into Rehoboth, it's easily missed but once found you will go back! Family run and hot fresh fried donuts!!!!!

Tried these in ocean city, md. Was family favorite so we were excited to have one nearby this vacation. Made hot and fresh to order. Despite all the kinds you can create, my favorite is still the old fashioned honey glazed!
