Great donuts, location a bit difficult to traverse

Excellent and convenient donuts. Busy and popular thus you must wait in line out onto street. Could expand.

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.

I'm NOT a donut lover but....the lines made us curious. Got half a dozen. I think the main reason they are soooo mouthwatering is the freshness. These are not cake donuts so I would say they are more like Krispy Kreme ...but better. No choice of flavors. They do one thing, but they do it well! Best donut I ever... More

My husband and I bought 1/2 dozen of these and ate them on a bench on the boardwalk. The donuts come hot, in a paper bag and that is how you're supposed to eat them. They melt in your mouth and nothing can compare to the taste. We would have eaten them every day, except that we are trying to... More

I love all donuts, but these really are wonderful! So hot and sugary. I am thrilled to finally have visited Britt's. They are definitely worth the effort to get there. I cannot wait to go back again!!!

Back to Britt's Donuts once again this year on vacation - I am not personally a donut eater, but there is just something about Britt's that makes me want to eat a few at a time. There is always a line so expect that, but it goes fast and you can get a dozen hot glazed donuts for $8. There... More

Three dozen donuts with a family of 16 does NOT go far!! 😉 It can never hurt to have more!! Be prepared to stand in line also.
