These are so NOT on my diet - but they were delicious!!! Had a chocolate glazed and the others in my group had an old fashioned or plain glazed. Not greasy - doing the one thing they do - very well!

Donuts here are always fresh and delicious. They don't have a huge variety like some of the other shops, but do what they have very well. Plain with coconut, glazed with or without chocolate, powdered, cinnamon sugar and more. Very well priced and friendly staff.

Recently our office was given two fozen of these delicious donuts. Melt in your mouth good. Crazy good flavor, texture was light with substance. Not too sweet, byt enough to offset your coffee. Wish they were closer. It is saving me from myself by not being close. Try these. You will be cong back for more!.

I never would have stopped by after seeing the exterior of this shop. TripAdvisor brought me in. When you walk in, however, get ready for a trip back in time. A good trip. If you like Krispy Kreme you should enjoy these doughnuts. It was a good treat and I would visit again.

As far as I know, this is the last potato flour donut shop on the East Coast. These are the best hot fresh donuts I have found. We planned a vacation to Charlottesville several years ago- just to visit the Spudnut Shop. If I lived in Charlottesville, I would be here every day! Love it!

Look, whether you have tried potato flour donuts or not , just come here. Family owned and operated, these people are working their tails off everyday before you get up to keep the name and business alive. Just awesome people in here doing their thing. Good hot coffee, home made donuts, great locals to talk to.. the blueberry cake donuts... More

After being told by my son (UVA student) that I just HAD to try spudnuts and being highly skeptical of the thought of a potato-based donut tasting anything other than some kind of oversized french fry without an end, I could not believe the joy that I experienced at my first taste of a spudnut "nut". Far from being dense,... More

I have been to the Spudnut Shop many times, and am never disappointed. The "shop" itself is a time-traveling experience- brings back memories of a simpler time. The overall menu is limited, but they excel at what they do. My favorite is the glazed Spudnut, which almost melts in your mouth. The shop is closed Sunday and Monday, and closes... More

1st I got a half dozen glazed, thought that the price was reasonable walked any of the store reached in the bag took one bite and turned right around and ordered a dozen more glazed and assorted kinds. I wasn't disappointed at all. Before dunkin doughnuts and Krispy Kreme became popular you had your delicious mom and pop bakery. This... More
