Has the recipe changed? I stopped for more KK while driving through Winston-Salem. I was wondering if I would have the same reaction I had experienced last night in Raleigh. A sense that something was off, or had changed. Last nights KK had not been the same as I remembered from having eaten KKs my entire life. Until I moved... More

There is nothing like a hot Krispy Kreme. My car automatically turns in when the Hot & Now sign is on.

I love my doughnuts warm and will order what is the perfect temperature, not necessarily the flavor that I want the most. So this was perfect for me. There was room in the coffee cup to add all the cream that I prefer and the three packets of sugar. One "but" my husband's second doughnut was filled with lemon as... More

This is home of Krispy Kreme. They have a good variety of the signature donuts. Best to watch for the HOT light to be on. When it is on, you can have the signature donut hit off the conveyor belt. When you get these, they melt in your mouth. Best with a cup of hot chocolate on a cool evening.... More

The doughnuts are truly sublime when warm and served with a good cup of coffee. Go with the traditional glazed. Keep it simple, and try to stop with just one! The coffee is good, but not the attraction.

Yes its good, yes the doughnuts are fresh, yeas the coffee is acceptable. But service and ambiance are part of the dinning experience, as is variety on the menu, and if it is doing its job right. It is the same as every Krispy Kreme in existence. That's the strength and weakness of a brand. Although it is better than... More

Awesome light doughnuts (when hot) I would NOT consider it a restaurant though.... But it is a good place to go if you want to help corporate machine use their chains to put out small businesses

This well known doughnut eatery is truly best ever place in the US! This survey says it wants at least 100 characters - I'm sorry - I'm tooooo busy (starting on my 3rd box, in 2 days - um, yes I have some help) enjoying these scrumptious donuts to do this review justice!

What more can you say about a "restaurant". I so miss the krispy kreme diet now that they have left the northeast. This is a staple in the south and we could do with more of it back in Boston. they make donuts the way God intended.
