Best. Doughnuts. Ever.

Krispy Kreme has thebest doughnuts by far and this location is my favorite KK store.

Ok, so it's Krispy Kreme and you know how good that is...buy one, you'll eat one, buy a dozen, yes - eat all of them! Never mind the sugar crash later. Only 2 blocks from the free "R" city bus line (and the CAT bus lines), here's an opportunity to grab as many as you can carry and then tour... More

When the donuts are hot it is amazingly delicious. It just melts in your mouth and you can't help but eat half a dozen!

Look for the hot now light and you will not be disappointed. Light sweet savory fried dough, with a melted sugar coating. Yum Yum This is not cakey like dunk kin doughnuts.

This landmark in Raleigh has been around for over 50 years. When the Krispy Kreme light is on everyone knows that you can go in and get hot donuts from the line. You never know who you may see since the location is in downtown. A large selection of donuts and some of the tastiest.

These donuts are always great and for the price all i can really say is go try them for yourself, they feel like they melt in your mouth and when they turn on the hot sign then you taste those hot donuts waiting for them to be ready is worth it.

Krispy Kreme is widely known in these parts for its melt-in-your-mouth, fresh glazed doughnuts. Get them while they're hot (actually warm is best, when the glaze has had just enough time to partially solidify. You can eat in at this Krispy Kreme and actually watch the sugar coated delights being made right before you very eyes on the doughnut line... More
