Ummm Donuts !

If you like Fresh Cake Donuts this place should not be missed. You might want to call your order in ahead of time, if traveling in large groups, as they can run out

Stopped in this morning for some donuts to surprise my daughter. Didn't have a huge selection, but I imagine that could be because it isn't quite season yet. But what we got was very good. Got a couple of HUGE muffins as well and those were equally as tasty. Everything was very fresh.

Once and done! Coffee looked like muddy water and was not up to par if you love coffee. Go to Hunga Bunga Java instead. Night and Day!

So my two friends and I have visited the last three days, and plan to visit the next three as well. Best dry cappuccino ever. You can preorder donuts for tomorrow, if necessary. Cinn/Sugar and Glazed are the best. I think we appreciated them as much as they appreciated us during our trip!

Stopped here last year for the first time and had to come back! Fabulous people, welcoming and helpful. Amazing coffee selection to start with, but they'll make anything you want! We also got some doughnuts this time - GET THE DOUGHNUTS!! Best cake doughnuts I've ever had - especially the cinnamon sugar!!

This was a very cute little cafe! definitely great for a morning or mid day caffeine fix - worth the visit! The iced coffee here was amazing and the ice cream was a huge treat. We came here every morning during our 5 day stay

Our family has been coming to Topsail the last few years, and since our inaugural visit - all the way to this very moment - The Daily Grind is our most favorite place next to the beach itself. The coffee is fantastic (never bitter, and the Island Blend is phenomenal!) - check out the Carolina Coconut Latte (can even be... More

Friendly staff and delicious ice cream. Just what you'd expect! Table area or lounge area with couches. Comfy place to pass a little time.

Friendly people, delicious, home made donuts. Donuts were a bit pricey though- $10 for a baker's dozen. Will go back for more the next time on Topsail.
