This is a great example of the inherent problems with the whole ranking system employed here. How can you compare a donut shop (an international chain, at that) to a place like St. Jacques (which certainly deserves it's top ranking)?!?

I've had the Krispy Kreme donuts in the Dominican Republic but they were not the same....not sure why. Maybe it's just a fact hear eating hot Donuts in 50 degree weather is just better. The shop had a really odd smell today...burning mettle so it sort of ruined the visit for my daughter who said she is now ruined for... More

Take the time and stop by this iconic little gem. Yes... it's donuts.. but they are good! Bring the kids and watch the donuts being made through the big glass windows. This is a must visit restaurant. If the sign is "HOT", you are likely to find me inside!

If you're in the Downtown Raleigh area, and you're in the mood for exploring, I'd highly recommend taking a stop here at Krispy Kreme. Just by location alone you'll know that this Raleigh landmark is in a very historic location (next to Historic Oakwood). I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said about what to expect... More

Oh yes! I've definitely visited this location throughout my whole lifetime! As a child I remember coming to Raleigh and stopping here for a visit and to get the paper hat that they still have on hand to grab and wear on your way out! Hot donuts now!!! They do just melt in your mouth when the glazed donuts come... More

Love going into a real Krispy Kreme shop it's the only way to experience the best of how they taste. Store bought in a box is no comparison! !

If you like hot fresh donuts and great coffee then you must go to the original Krispy Kreme donuts....They melt in your mouth. A Raleigh must see and experience attraction.

I can see why the North Carolina State University students have a yearly tradition of running to Krispy Kreme and eating a dozen hot doughnuts. It's a fantastically fun place to go for breakfast or late night muchies. Love the coffee too...BETTER THAN STARBUCKS

This is a Raleigh staple. One of the first Krispy Kremes ever. Watch doughnuts being made all day and stuff your face. With these delectable desserts. What are you waiting for? Go!

Went to this iconic KK in downtown near the Capital / Oakmont district after dinner at the Pit. Our friends wanted a donut for desert, instead of something in the restaurant!! Besides the decadently delicious donuts, this location features large picture windows from the waiting area through to the preparation areas where you can see the donuts on conveyors going... More
