The building is not much to look at, and typical old coffee shop style inside, but the Spudnuts are so good!! We tried the chocolate, cinnamon sugar and glazed. All were yummy! The cinnamon sugar ones were still hot! We also had good coffee, for less than $1!!! Make sure you bring cash, and stop by, if you like doughnuts... More

I don't usually eat sweets and my traveling companions were surprised that I INSISTED on hunting this place down. I had never eaten a spudnut and I wanted to try one. We ordered glazed basic spudnuts and coffee and the four of us at the table drooled. Oh, my, this is one treat that was worth the hunt and one... More

Never had a potato flour based donut before, but wondering where they have been my whole life. The establishment is older and a showing it, but the food is great and the service was very good. Highly recommend, especially their blueberry cake donuts!

This is one of the best donuts shop in town. In my opinion, it is tied for the best with carter mountain's donuts. It is a great place to get an early morning breakfast with friends. I suggest going just when they open (6:00 am) so that you can get the donuts fresh. Usually I will go with a group... More

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!
