OMG.... you can't eat just one.

These are soooo good. Worth the calories! They taste like what a Krispy Kreme used to long ago. Fresh, hot and ohhhh so good!

We stood in line for 30-40 minutes because every one around us was saying it was worth it. The donuts were really good, but we both like Krispy Kreme better. I would go back here for donuts but would not wait in line for them. All I hear is good things about these donuts so maybe we are just crazy.... More

They are very light and fluffy which is good but not much substanance. Must eat fresh otherwise they turn to grease. It is definitely a must try, the smell is like a carnival and is a nice atmosphere

If you like warm glazed donuts then this is the place. Eight dollars for a dozen donuts is a pretty good price too. Get there early - the line can get quite long.

I read reviews and decided to try. Not sure what all the hype is about. Donuts tend to be greasy...not good next day. Try Krispy Kreme located on the way to Carolina Beach.

Great local Donut Shop which has a history of serving up the most tasty, melt in your mouth donut. Great service, friendly staff, locally owned and operated and you cannot eat just one.

This place is better than any Krispy Kreme by far. They're always amazing when I get them. I can eat one hot or cold and it is still amazing. I go every time I can while I'm there

Our friends, who live near Carolina Beach practically ordered us to try a Britt's donut. Didn't really have to twist our arms. I have to say it's probably the best donut I've ever tasted. Fresh and hot right out of the fryer, unreal. The line into Britt's is all you really need to know.

What a quaint little place but with an extraordinary donut. Worth the visit and wait. Regardless of the wait it was a beautiful day. They were delicious and hot. Outstanding!

You can't go wrong with donuts. Their hot fresh and staff is friendly. Then you can walk the beach to burn off those calories! Thumbs up!
