This small donut shop with locations in several towns in North Carolina, makes donuts as you wait and they are yummy! You order in one spot and then go next door to watch them make the donuts and frost them. My favorite were cinnamon and sugar, but the lemon icing was delicious too. Heck, all of them were delicious!

Not much to add that others haven't already said. We stopped to make sure they were as good as the one in KDH, and they were! :) Bigger selection of choices than KDH, including the lemon-iced which was fantastic!

These donuts are sooooo delicious, especially the maple bacon! It is so fun watching your donut be made from scratch and iced hot off the conveyor belt. Must eat and serve hot!

Fresh, warm, excellent. Better than any other donut shop around. Get the coffee mugs and start a collection. Very cool!

We tried the maple and bacon donut and also lemon with coconut. Both were amazing and crispy on the edges without being too cake-y in the middle. Use a fork (or your face, LOL) to get all the frosting off of the wax paper! Yum. You order on one side of the shopping area, then pick up your order about... More

Here's a tip: take home some order forms so that you can have your order ready to place. Wait time can be upwards of 30 min in the morning hours.

Fantastic donuts, each order is custom made and the donuts are simple, served warm and delicious. Be sure to watch the two donut machines in action.

I have a sweet tooth but I've never been a big fan of donuts. My boyfriend is the donut fan and as soon as he saw this place he wanted to check it out. After I saw his just out of the oven, chocolate and nut covered donut I had to try that decadence and with one bite was sold... More

Went on our way home. Got there before the rush; no line but after we ordered it was down the building outside! Donuts were great! Didn't see the order form until after - would have helped - so look for them when you get there.
