Even the leftovers are wonderful!

We got there at the end of the day and there wasn't much to choose from. But it was all good! The cinnamon twists are a must.

Carol Lee's is a Blacksburg staple and a must-visit for anyone stopping through. I don't even normally like donuts and I love Carol Lee's. They have something for EVERYONE, and the donuts are cheap but delicious. Can't be beat. Be careful on a weekend, it'll be packed!

This is not only the best Donut place in Blacksburg but the best I have ever eaten. Not very expensive and every bit worth the price. A must try for everybody who visits Blacksburg.

I've been to Carol Lee twice and both times it's been fantastic. The best donuts I've ever tasted! I've had both the blueberry donut and the yeast raised glazed. Both are fantastic and the blueberry is especially different. Not very close to VT campus, but it's worth the extra 5 minute drive to taste these!

In the old days, Carol Lee Donut Shop was located on College Avenue adjacent to the campus of Virginia Tech, and it was a very popular Saturday morning spot. Drop in for coffee and fresh donuts. It was a tradition for students and locals alike. Downtown redevelopment and increasing rent forced them to relocate to the north end of town,... More

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.
