This past week I walked down the street to Britt's Donut Shop for a real treat. The donuts are hot and fresh and sweet. The line was not too long on a sunny Saturday morning and well worth the short wait. Then, one can take those donuts and head for the boardwalk and have a nice snack on the Atlantic... More

One of the greatest donuts on the planet. I could literally live off of Britts for the rest of my life. Don't be shy. Get one!

Opening day Friday lines were to long for us. We tried again on Saturday and it was the same. So Sunday morning we were there at 8:30am and enjoyed the best glazed donut with coffee and people watching as always.

There is nothing better than eating warm Britt's Donuts while sitting on the beach! It isn't beach season until Britt's opens. Located on the boardwalk at Carolina Beach, it is not difficult to find because you see the line of people waiting to order. Do not be intimidated by the line as it will move fast. Britt's donuts are very... More

Can I compare Britt's to DD or KK? No. It's a very different type of donuts. Yes, it's fried and has a hole in the middle, but they are not cakey like Dunkin' or sweet like Krispy. I have many friends who come into town and have Britt's on their "must do list" after the beach. Britt's is located on... More

Nothing embodies the opening and closing of Island SummerTime like Britt's!!! A totally unique Carolina Beach Boardwalk tradition that features the worlds best donut. You can only get it one way; fresh hot and amazingly sweet!

Get them while they are hot and they just melt in your mouth. They have been on the boardwalk forever and have not changed in years, when you have perfection why change.
