OMG YUM

Britts Donuts are simple glazed donuts. Okay, you say so how amazing can you make a glazed donut? Well, let me tell you, they are by far THE BEST. Yes, you may have to wait in a long line, in the hot sun, or even rain, but it is ALWAYS worth it!

Krispy Kreme fans take note, this is what the original Krispy Kreme donuts tasted like when the hot dignities now light came on. No need for a sign here, every visit has hot donuts now. Oh and since you are on vacation they take the calories out for you (or so they say).

Britt's donuts are a tourist attraction best eaten hot. If you need that morning sugar shock with your cup of coffee, by all means do not miss Britt's.

Yes, I know that EVERYONE loves Britt's donuts. But honestly... They are NOT the best donut in town. They can only be eaten when hot otherwise they just taste like cold grease. I wish I could figure out the attraction to this place other than it has been around for so long. If you want a GREAT donut go to... More

This place is a garage at the boardwalk on Carolina Beach. It is only open in the spring and summer. The line usually extends the length of the boardwalk, but it moves quickly. You walk up to the counter, order the number of glazed donuts you want, and they drop them in the grease when you order. They dunk the... More
