Delicious!

By far the BEST donuts around. All of their donuts are made fresh daily and have the best flavor. Definitely the best donut shop around.

I have been wanting to try Carlson's donuts for months. Yesterday was the greatest day ever. Carlson's donuts are better than warm Krispy Kreme donuts!!! You will never want to eat a donut other than Carlson's ever again. A must try for the New Year!

The best donuts found in the Annapolis Area. If one could bottle the aroma of Carlson's it too would capture our taste buds and cause one to want more and more and more. I certainly will always place Carlson's on my wake-up call when in the Annapolis area.

Very small freindly donut and coffee shop but they have the best donuts ever and they are freshly made every morning If you don't get there early before 9 am you will miss out on these tasty donuts they sell out FAST.

The doughnuts are baked fresh, on the premises. They are better than ANY doughnut place in the area! My co-workers can't get enough of them. Depending on what time you get there, the doughnuts could be just out of the oven. I ONLY eat doughnuts from Carlson's!

If you want doughnuts from Carlson's, you'd better get there before 9:00 a.m. - they sell out fast. This is not a restaurant, just a counter to place your order.

Simple donuts that taste amazing because of the small shop and limited quantities made- guarantee that once you try these, you will NEVER eat DD or others again.

The donut shop is a small, out of the way place. However, they seem to only cook once a day so if you get there later in the morning selection is low. What you do get, however, is always good and worth the early visit.

This is a hole-in-the-wall place with fantastic donuts! Light. Airy. The fritters are especially great and gooey and yummy! You will not regret grabbing a donut or a dozen here. Prices are amazing. But take cash; it's all that they accept. The folks here are very friendly and humble people. The only reason I almost rated it a 4 is... More
