Donuts fresh from the fryer. The Apple Fritters are the best anywhere. There is nothing to dislike. Try it. An Island summer favorite.

After years of going to Oak Bluffs we finally went to get an apple fritter at the back door. The line was not too long and the fritter was still warm.

We were unable to do the whole late night Back Door thing because of the ferry schedule. Once inside it was so hard to decide what to order. (I felt no pressure though having used the front door.) We decided to share an apple fritter. This thing had huge chunks of warm apples and the perfect amount of cinnamon. It... More

This is one of those things that the regulars know. There's a bakery in the heart of Oak Bluffs you can go during the day through the front door, but after dark, it is much more fun to stand in the parking lot out back and get hot donuts out the back door. Apple fritters have no apples in them... More

Our thanks to all of you who love Back Door Donuts! Hopefully you taste and see pieces of apple in the apple fritters - but if you don't actually see chunks of apple, you can be assured there is lots of apple in the fritter dough. Our staff puts additional apple pieces on the outside of each fritter before they... More

It's just dessert, but it's lots of fun to get a hot, steaming doughnut in the evening after dinner from the back of a bakery. I'm not huge on sweets, so I got the ultimate chocolate donut and split it with my friend. It was the perfect amount for me; my friend said she could have had the whole thing... More

We went to Back Door donuts on a week night for a special treat!! There was a line when we arrived but it moved quickly & it gave us time to figure out what kind of deliciousness we would have & ooooh / ahhh over some of the treats the people in front of us were getting. The staff is... More

These donuts are amazing, especially the apple fritters. Served warm and fresh, went great with a cup of coffee. Having just gotten off the ferry, it was an awesome start to our day in Martha's Vineyard!! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone!

What is there to say about a doorway that serves Donuts at the back of a bakery? Ummmm, FANTASTIC! We arrived a half hour before they opened and were still 10th in the Que. We waited and were rewarded with a real feast of the Donuts available, all of which are fresh and really tasty. One trip is probably enough... More
