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

If the HOT sign is on, it's a must. It's also really cool to see the doughnuts being made. I'm not a huge donut fan but I do love a Krispy Kreme Doughnut every once in a while!!

This place produces some of the best donuts you will ever have. Make sure to swing in if the light for hot and fresh is on. Melt in your mouth.

I was treated with respect. Great doughnuts. The store was very clean. Well advised. I competed in the Krispy Kreme Challenge and it was a blast. Just don't stay at Red Roof Inn and get treated like they think everyone is a slime.

Don't go if you're calorie watching. Do go if you love hot melt in your mouth doughnuts! The coffee is delish, too. I typically buy it at the grocery store to grind at home. Only drawback is the seating area is very small - more for take out than sit in and eat. They also have a drive in window.... More

Has the recipe changed? I have to say this is the first time I have ever, not enjoyed a glazed KK. There's nothing that I can say that was specifically wrong, just that something wasn't right. Maybe I was tired, it was just after midnight after all. I stopped for more, the next day, while driving through Winston-Salem. I had... More
