Best Spudnut/donuts in Charlotesville

It can be a little off the beaten path is you do not live around the downtown area. Well worth a trip, and if you need to win the co-workers over. Walk in with a box of Spudnuts.

Drove over to get some spud nuts saturday morning only to find the place was closed. Never heard of a coffee shop/bakery being closed on the weekends. Disappointed.

This business has been around for 40-50 years here in Charlottesville. Spudnuts was a franchise donut shop and I think there are only 2 or 3 left. This one is great. The donuts are fantastic. They may sell cake type donuts, but I get the regular ones that are light and soft. All kinds of toppings. Open early morning and... More

I love eating these donuts. They are one of my favorites. They are not thick like some other donuts and just melt in your mouth. I would recommend these donuts if you need to fill your sweet tooth!

A cute family run shop with delicious donuts! Go early and with cash because that is all the accept, but worth the pain!! Weekends you'll find their maple donuts and will become hooked!

Long long ago in another border state far far away, I grew up with Spudnuts as a Sunday treat/bribe/tradition. And the bakery was in a nondescript little brick building off one of the major thoroughfares in town, which is to say, just like this one. And amazingly, the donuts taste (and feel) exactly the same: these are the classic very... More

Most people love donuts. EVERYONE loves Spudnuts. Spudnuts is a Charlottesville institution. When I keep medical and dental appointments I bring Spudnuts for the staff. They are extremely appreciative and these wonderful donuts bring a smile to the most disheartened person.

I have driven by Spudnuts as long as I can remember, and my parents always would talk about how much my grandfather loved it, but I never actually had my first Spudnut until a few years ago. I was missing out all those years! These are traditional glazed donuts, cut out in an octagon shape, but they are made with... More

Really, really good donuts-- I brought a couple dozen to work and ate way more than my share. This will definitely be the go-to place for bringing donuts to work. Walking into Spudnuts is kind of like walking back in time. There are people who are obvious regulars reading the printed paper and having coffee and a donut, and the... More
