A highlight of going to Ocean City, NJ. Browns makes the best donuts I have had by far. Nothing compares to these! My whole family goes crazy over these. They are warm, fresh, and delicious everyday. Get there early, because they go quick. Must try at the boardwalk. Favorite is the vanilla glazed!

Stopped in again with a bunch of grandkids. Even though they were short staffed as many resort areas are this time of year on the Jersey Coast, they stayed patient and friendly. Some wait staff get rattled, these ladies stayed cool. Food was good as it has always been this year. Sad to see it close for the season but... More

Our family did not dine inside here, maybe next time. We were passing by on our bikes and stopped at the takeout counter for doughnuts for the girls. They thoroughly enjoyed them as they came straight from the fryer and topped w/ glaze or powdered. Myself, not a big doughnut fan, actually scraped up the fallen scraps.

Maybe it's because you eat them on the boardwalk. Maybe it's because the sea gulls want them. I don't know, I only know that they are the best and I will miss them sorely this winter.

Had our "End of Season" breakfast and enjoyed it. Creamed Chipped Beef was perfect on Home-fries. Coffee was hot and good. Chocolate milk was delicious. Go! Don't forget to take home some donuts if you can get in line.

We visited 3 times last week. Always with a large family group of 8-10 and needing infant seating as well. We were always treated with the best attitudes and professionalism! Friendly staff who go out of their way to accommodate. The menu is simple yet full and the choices are abundant. Be sure to get there early or expect to... More

Face it, you’re really here for the donuts. Our favorites are the vanilla and the cinnamon ones. We’ve had breakfast here a few times over the years and thankfully it hasn’t changed much. In season you’ll find that parking and just getting a seat is a challenge. Every time that we’ve been to Brown’s there’s been a line outside for... More

My wife wanted to share one of her childhood memories of going to Brown's for a donut. I have to say, they did not disappoint. We all started with one cinnamon donut each and it was warm, fresh and delicious. The donut should have been enough but because we're happy fat people with no direct DNA relationship with the millions... More
