I seriously could not have imagined how good this place was going to be! A few different people had told us about the apple fritters, but we didn't really think they were going to be a big deal. Boy were we wrong! First of all, they are the size or your head!!!! And just amazing! The Maple Glaze donut may... More

We were having dinner over at the offshore ale house and we could smell something heavenly in the air. Turns out it was backdoor donuts. We were there relatively early since the island was quiet due to it being a shoulder season, and we were fortunate enough to not have a line to wait in! I ordered a fall classic... More

The best. I mean holy crap, these were amazing. My boyfriend and I went around 9PM and had an assortment of things. I had a maple bacon donut (OMG RUN DO NOT WALK AND EAT IT) and the Boston Creme (It wa really tasty as well) and we split an apple fritter. Yea. The fritter basically melts in your mouth.... More

My boyfriend and I were walking around in Oak Bluffs after dinner one night and were totally drawn in by the amazing smell of apples wafting around the center of town. We tracked down backyard donuts, and much to our disappointment didn't have any cash on hand, so had to wait another night to try. However, the donuts were well... More

I get a chuckle just thinking about this. This year the system in the parking lot has improved from other years. I laugh when I hear people coming on the boat or walking the streets and the buzz is "Backdoor Donuts". The lines remind me of Disney World, going up and down the lines that are roped off and having... More

Had to try the glazed donuts… they were wonderful, as was the ham and cheese croissant. Worth a stop!

It was hard for me to see what was so special about the apple fritter or cinnamon roll. They both seemed to use the same tasteless dough. The dough itself should be worth eating. The fritters are very sweet; the few pieces of apple in them do taste like apple. The sugar glaze with cinnamon was acceptable. The cinnamon roll... More

The late night goodies were quite a treat. We tried the doughnuts and cinnamon roll - which was still hot when we got it. Part of the Local Culture, and worth trying.
