The apple fritter is absolutely unbelievable! When it is warm, it melts in your mouth. My fiancé and I devoured it in a matter of minutes. It is a must-do in Oak Bluffs.

This is a must stop if you are craving something sweet while in Oak Bluffs! Their brownies are ginormous pieces of chocolate heaven! Highly recommended!

Set up just like a bakery from the 70s... This place will change your life. The glazed chocolate donut is "the best donut I have had in my life" per my sister. They are soft and sweet and oh so rich. I preferred the apple braid stick. Which was delicious a full day late. The apple fritter should be included... More

These donuts were out of this world. The simple honey dipped was outstanding. My BF loved the chocolate dipped and he also had a Charlie - donut with ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Life changing. The must-get here are the apple fritters. They are good cold but even better if you stick them in the fridge and have... More

We heard about back door donuts as a MV "requirement" for our visit, and that was a great recommendation!! We saw the line at 8pm- looked like a club or everyone waiting in line to get in to see a band! When we came back after dinner, the line was shorter, but still there. At the window, you could order... More

My family and I were hear making the line two nights in a row during our stayed at the Vineyard. They have the best warm donuts and it's definitely worth the way.

My sister Ellen and brother-in-law Brian brought home 2 dozen donuts one night. This was fantastic to eat for the next 3 days. They stayed fresh and delicious! The first night was the best when they were piping hot. My sister said she spotted the line after the carousel ride, and knew she had to be a part of this... More

Stopped in while wandering the streets of OB. The line wasn't too long so we waited for one of the apple fritter and a chocolate glazed. The fritter was worth the wait, the chocolate donut was nothing special.
