Heaven in a bite!

These are the best cinnamon buns ever! They melt in in your mouth. Just the right amount of sweet, not drowned in glaze.

My stepfather's family was in the donut business. These are among the best I've had. I'm giving Carol Lee a 5, which is the same rating I gave Chez Panisse. Enough said. You will probably want coffee from the nearby Starbucks, however.

A Blacksburg staple when it was next door to the Lyric Theater and continues now out North Main Street. Best donuts I have ever had. Beats Crispy Creme and Duncan Donuts hands down.

Get 'em while they're hot - and they almost always are. Worth the drive out to North Main no matter where you live in the United States. Go for the glazed, and stay for the surgary haze. Have no idea who Carol Lee is or was, but she knows how to amaze your donut senses.

A must stop for anyone looking for a donut in Blacksburg. Homemade. The glazed are ridiculous. Carol Lee is an institution of this town. Although you may drive by it and miss it, keep yours eyes open for this gem!

Carol Lee donuts is a long time Blacksburg business that makes fresh donuts every morning. And they taste like it. Plus it is in an old gas station repurposed as a donut shop. If you get there really early they have these white bags of mystery donuts for a really good price . Inside are the rejects- the between batter... More

Whether you are local or just visiting, treat yourself to something sweet at Carol Lee Donuts! Years ago, as a Virginia Tech student, Carol Lee was located on College Ave, and was considered a staple of anyone's diet. Once you have had the pleasure to indulge in one of these donuts; Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Donuts, or whatever bakery will always... More

SImply delicious! We have introduced them to our whole family and everyone agrees. Sometimes getting in and out of the parking lot can be tricky.
