Walking through Oak Bluffs after dinner our first night there we kept getting whiffs of yummy donuts. The following morning, we discovered Back Door Donuts but had to wait for evening. Yes, it is truly the back door of a bakery where you order from a selection of delicious donuts and fritters. Skip the restaurant dessert and head there.

Having seen this was #1 restaurant on here (it's clearly not a restaurant) we had to check this out. So, on a Saturday night, having forgone dessert especially, we eventually tracked down the floodlit carpark from the main high street and after tracing our steps back down the street to the precint where the bakery's front door is and then...

Seriously the best apple fritter I've ever had, just don't have one before biking across M.V. :-) It may look like a hole in the wall, but if you stop no where else on the island stop here.

We were told about this place by our innkeeper who was shocked to find we had never heard of it. As soon as she told us about their warm nightly donuts we knew we would be visiting. What a treat to have fresh warm donuts at 7pm! Donuts were delicious and we will definitely be returning.

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

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
