The best donuts around bar none! Chocolate, buttermilk, glazed and cinnamon were tops. And the apple fritter was superb. Late nite jolt of sugar may keep everyone, especially children, up past their bedtime.... Buyer beware!!

We didn't try the evening back door doughnuts but went in the day with the children and it's totally amazing. Tried the apple fritter and cinnamon rolls two days apart and they are fab despite the appearance which I think doesn't do them favour. We found the service helpful. A d even though we were staying in vineyard haven and... More

Each morning I'd walk from Brady's B&B with his puppy Amiee to this place for coffee and a treat for the pup. 6am was a good time to walk downtown and enjoy the beautiful sights in this lovely town. Back Door Donuts is the place to go for great coffee and wonderful baked goods. THE BEST!

...literally ten minutes ago. OMG. Best donuts EVER. I can't even describe how good these are. The cinnamon and sugar ones are insane. My husband loved the honey dipped ones. Can't wait for more!

Our 20-something kids told us about this night time treat and now it's a family tradition! Delicious treats served from the "back door" we all order different items and walk thru town sharing. Love the whole experience

We came here last year and the baked goods were very yummy. This year we came back and had the best apple fritters and raspberry pie on the island and the other donuts were the best! Each year that we come back for vacation we are definitely coming here. It is now a family tradition. The staff are super friendly... More

Back Door Doughnuts was a charming, old fashioned bakery with fantastic, flavorful doughnuts that taste like they come from a bakery and not a factory.....excellent local flair, a must stop destination

We went on a whim having heard about the place from a local. It opens at 7 pm and we went at 7 10 with only one person in front of us. The cinnamon donut, warm from the oven was absolutely delicious. I speak as someone who never eats donuts. Never. If that hadn't have been our last night I... More
