Britt's is only open a few months a year, but as soon as it opens there is a line of locals around the block. Everyone who has ever lived in the Wilmington area knows summer time means Britt's!

Had planned to get some donuts for breakfast, but when going back to our beach place after dinner, noticed folks going through the little alley-way to Britt's; it was still open, so we stopped.. Had to wait just a few minutes, but they came freshly made, hot melt-in-your mouth! Our dinner wasn't so great, but donuts for dessert put a... More

The long line on a Sunday morning moved quickly. Great donuts and fun setting. Best to get some milk, sit down and eat them while hot.

Bad news: They are only open seasonally, which means no donuts in fall and winter. Good news: How many people go to the beach in fall and winter anyway? Bad news: They do not accept cards, cash only. Good news: Donuts are cheap, just 95$ each as of this writing. Bad news: They only make one kind of donut, a... More

Wonderful bite of beach history - carolina beach boardwalk has lost a lot of its ambiance but Britt's Doughnuts has been able to survive and thrive.

Love watching them making the donuts. But I like eating them even more. So soft and puffy and a delicate sweetness. Yummmmm.

We had so many recommendations for Brit's, so we had to go. Lines are long, but it moves quick. You can't go to CB and not visit Brit's!! Fans fo/r life! The only negative?? They close down for the summer season. We got there not too long before they closed the doors until next year!
