Simple, delicious, hot donuts

Its a long time classic - go get some donuts. Glazed only, being made constantly throughout the day. Great any time. Bring a dozen or two home to the house for breakfast and people will love you for it. Like Krispy Kreme, but better.

Best donut in the world. We always have Britts for breakfast and a late night snack. It's amazing how many people stop you as your walking to ask you if you know where Britts Donut Shop is located.

As soon as you finish your first donut you will be asking for a second and third fresh cooked and dipped in glaze warm... More

One of the best doughnuts I have ever had. Definitely check to make sure they are open, and they close in the winter.

Walked here from our condo based on many recommendations from friends. Waited in line 30 minutes just for these special donuts. They were warm and gooey. The kids liked them. Would come back for sure.

I had heard about the long lines but at 8:40am Sunday morning my order was taken without any wait. Options were a) single orders, b) half dozen or c) dozen. Twelve was too many (I sound like a nursery rhyme) and 3 or 4 too few so I opted for the middle. They were great hot and Ok later in... More

It is located in the Carolina Beach Boardwalk area in a very small storefront. We tried to go one evening but found that their current hours started at 4p on Thursday... More

You HAVE to do this while in Carolina Beach. The only have glaze, but they are fantastic! Get a bag of them to take home, give to friends, and or eat, if you don't eat them all on the way. The line is always long, but goes fast. If you just go to the counter and have a donut, you... More
