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.

Having a family member living on Martha's Vineyard, we were sure to get an inside scoop on where to snack. But this place was amazing, as were their donuts. Tried the sugar cinnamon and of course the apple fritter ( with chunks of apple) and we're blown away. Yum!

I am not a big donut fan, though as I have traveled around I have tried many 'favorite' donuts from both local and national brands. The donuts from back door donuts were still warm, and absolutely delicious - way different to all others. I gave them 4 stars because they are so much better than others, and so reasonably priced...

Bakery was A little hard to find, but well worth the effort. The owner warmed our "melt in your mouth" apple fritter; and we enjoyed conversation with a local resident in the cozy eating area.

Walking thru town in Oak Bluffs around 6:45.....looking for someplace for dinner.....lobsta, Mexican, shrimp?? Then the aroma of donuts floated up Circuit St and there we went in line at Back Door Donuts. OMG.....the very best apple fritters ever. Dinner was forgotten. Enjoy!

It doesn't matter what restaurant you pick for dinner on Martha's Vineyard-skip the restaurant dessert and grab an apple fritter from Back Door Donuts. The fritters are warm, crispy on the outside, cinnamon-y goodness on the inside. You will meet fun people while in line(and yes, the lines can get long, but everyone is having a great time ) -...

Another couple at the Oak Bluffs Inn down the street recommended this place. Back Door Donuts? Yes, they were. You line up after hours when the main bakery has closed At the back door of the bakery. There was even a security guard there, though he may have been one of the workers anyway. We checked the prices. $4.50 for... More

Never thought possible to line up in the evening waiting for fresh donuts to be sold out the back door. Try the chocolate supreme one!! Must try if in Martha's Vineyard

I visit MV yearly just to get some fritters. LOVE THEM...yummy! There are other items but get the fritters. You won't be sorry. One is plenty big for 2 maybe 3 people.
