It is well worth the wait to get these donuts while they are hot!!!! Nice, old fashioned feel on the boardwalk. I usually end up in great conversations while waiting for the hot donuts!!

Carolina Beach landmark Britt's Donut Shop is a must for visitors coming to Wilmington/Carolina Beach/Wrightsville Beach area! Delicious hot melt in your mouth donuts - yum !!! They only serve hot glazed donuts so if you are looking for a variety try Wake N Bake donuts next to the Food Lion. You won't be disappointed at either donut shop in... More

I know Britt's is famous, family-owned and their donuts usually get rave reviews. However, they only have one type of donut which is basically puffed up fried dough. The closest type of traditional donut I could compare it to is what we call in New England a honey-dip donut. I was very disappointed that they call themselves a donut shop... More

Donuts may not be the healthiest food in the world but don't deny yourself at least one visit to Britt's for warm, gooey donuts fresh out of the kitchen. They simply melt in your mouth and the sugar high will stay with you for at least a good 10 minutes.

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.
