Lots of adverting and lots of "word of mouth". I couldn't wait to get there. My son brought some back with him when he went to the boardwalk. They were good; very good, but I don't think they met the level of the hype. Definitely try them and let me know your opinion.

Best doughnuts in the world. Be sure to stroll the boardwalk, visit the arcade and have one (or a dozen). One variety-only choice to be made is milk, soda or coffee with that.

I gentleman asked me to take a picture of him and his elderly father in front of the donut shop. It looks like they have been serving hot donuts for decades.

I've had donuts from various local shops, Krispy Kreme donuts, Dunkin Donuts, Tim Horton's donuts, and none of them come close to what Britt's offers. The slight crunch, warm glaze, and melt-in-your-mouth dough all come together for the truly perfect donut. It is well worth the long line you will often encounter and worth the drive if you're in even... More

Prepare to wait in a long line but it is worth it! The doughnuts are warm and crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. The BEST doughnut ever!

Okay, when a friend told us to be sure we went by Britt's and got a doughnut I really didn't think it would be as great as it was, but she was right. Best doughnuts ever. You have to get one of these.

We were taken to this shop by family who lived in the area. It was nice to see that businesses this old can still compete in today's world with just their one menu item. Good for you guys. We enjoyed a doughnut and chatted with the workers. Our kids and us loved watching the workers make the doughnuts. It was... More
