Spudnuts

A C'ville tradition. Within walking distance of the downtown mall. Ole fashioned donuts! Nothing fancy or elaborate - just good old home made donuts!

If you are a doughnut lover this is the place for you... Made of potato flour these are light fluffy and out of this world. Many wonderful flavors. My favorite "COCONUT"

The donuts are so good (dangerously good). Definitely don't make the mistake of getting just one. They close when they sell out...which tends to be on the early side. Best to go first thing in the morning especially if you want your choice of flavors. The staff is very friendly and nice. If you are visiting i would grab some... More

Closed on Monday morning, just when I need it most! :-) so instead, schedule meetings for Tuesday morning and show up with Spudnut donuts.

Love that we have one of the last 80 of the remaining spudnut shops. Very authentic retro spot, always love to have one of these or get a box to share with the work crowd

They only take cash, but the prices are very reasonable, and they run out quickly of the ones besides glazed... More

I am from Winston Salem NC, home of Krispie Kreme donuts and I love the Charlottesville Spudnut Shop better! I must say that I have tasted various flavors and hands down, the blueberry flavor is the one to buy about a dozen of!!! The potatoes must give it that something extra(: I love it's more cake like consistency, along with... More

I think that Spudnut is just as good if not better than Duck donuts. This please is small family run place that remembers you, or welcomes in new people to make them feel at home!
