You simply must try the Fractured Prune!

A dozen donuts made fresh while you wait is about $18 and worth every cent. They are like bites of heaven and the flavor choices are amazing. Went on the suggestion of my daughter and she was right. Well worth the trip. Will go back again and again!

I had heard rave reviews about these particular donuts and they did not disappoint! Warm soft and so tasty. And there were so many flavors. I had the pumpkin and it was to die for. You can only pay in cash...FYI. Do not miss it!

You order your donut with all the special toppings and get to watch your donut get donut get dipped and drizzled and comes hot off the belt. There are not too many places where you can watch your donut being made and eat it hot!

Tried it...hated it. Donuts are made to order so there is a long wait for your order. Served hot right out of the fryer, hand dipped in whatever topping from the menu you choose. I didn't get the hype. All I got was a mushy greaseball with very little taste if any. Much more expensive than Dunkin and other donuts.... More

Get them while they're hot or reheat for a few seconds in the microwave! By far the BEST donuts I've ever eaten! French Toast is my favorite. The warm maple glaze is out of this world! Just remember it's Cash Only.

The name tells you nothing, but the place (one of several in the area) has really good doughnuts. You make your choice of the doughnut you want and then you choose the topping. Tastes great and fun for the kids,

Fractured Prune got its name from local lure so surprised that donuts were their delicacy. Group had three different varieties of their donuts and all were delicious and fresh. Donuts are made when ordered so freshness is guaranteed. Fast, delicious stop.

This is an OC landmark and the story behind the name is really cool. What this place does is take a plain donut, then dip in a glaze of various flavors, and topped with other goodies. One of our favorites is the very plain, but yummy, OC Sand. Pebble beach is topped with mini chocolate chips. Blueberry hill, well, tastes... More
