Warm delicious with a slight crunch. Absolutely delicious!! The line is long for a reason and it is well worth the wait.

Hot, fresh, glazed and glorious. We walked up the beach and waited in line on Sunday morning at 8 am. Worth the wait.

I had to have one of these donuts just to try them and to see if they really were that great. Well, it wasn't non edible, but I would not stand in line again to get one and you will stand in line no matter what time of day you go there. I would not give them a poor rating... More

There is often a long line outside Britt's waiting for a taste of these amazing, warm, melt in your mouth donuts. They only do one kind, glazed, but when you do one kind so well, why do anything else!?

This is a must for anyone that likes Krispy Kreme doughnuts. You'll never be the same afterwards!!! You may even throw rocks at the KK "Hot-n-now" sign. We've actually heard of someone in our hometown drive down and eat here, stay the night, drive back the next morning; crazy! Anywho, go see Ms. Britt. She'll put a smile on your... More

If you love the smell and taste of fresh doughnuts then you can't beat Britt's. You can choose from several different kinds and just let them melt in you mouth.

Cash only! Britt's serves up the best original glazed, melt-in-your mouth donuts. They have been here since 1939 and you will see why. Grab a half dozen and enjoy.
