After hearing about Britt's donuts for decades, we finally timed up our visit to Carolina Beach with an open shop and minimum crowds. I'm glad we made it. The donuts are similar to Krispy Kreme's hot donuts, with a little fluffier dough, smaller in size, and perhaps a little sweeter. Only buy as... read more

I make it a point to have Britts Doughnuts and Franks pizza every trip. It may only be one trip a year but its multiple visits a time to those places during our stay. It is a MUST. whoever says krispy kreme is better is a basket case. See yall in july

We stopped by here at a family member's recommendation and were very happy with the donuts. They were light, fresh, and very very good. I would recommend getting a bag to take some for later, even if you have had your fill while you are there. Highly recommend.

We heard everyone rave about Britt's so we gave it a go. Doughnuts were good but were very light, not much substance. If you stop by, get a dozen because they are not really filling. We waited about 15 minutes this morning for the doughnuts which wasn't bad, but tonight, people were waiting close to an hour for doughnuts. They... More

The best donuts ever! If you are visiting Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, the Wilmington area you must stop by Britts Donuts on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. You will know you have arrived because of the line to purchase the donuts will be long, but truly worth the wait.

We love running in and getting a dozen hot donuts before heading to the beach. Our children love them hot and sticky.

First I would like to say that I am not a donut person (gasp!), but was told that this particular donut shop was only open certain times of the year (the day I was there!). Once we had parked, there was no reason to stop and ask someone for directions, as the smell guided us right to the small side... More
