Wonderfully simple donuts!

This is an old favorite in Charlottesville. Come early because they run out fast. Wonderfully light and airy classic donuts. You will NOT be disappointed.

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

This is a tiny mom and pop operation that has been there for a very long time. They are by far the best donuts I've ever had. The blueberry ones are the absolute best ones and run out first everyday. 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!

I grew up near Spudnut and our families were friends. I got to go into the kitchen to see how they made these delicious doughnuts made of potatoes.

Spudnuts are the BEST! Get them warm and you won't be sorry. But, come early because they sell out really quick. And don't forget your cash, that is all they take.

The Spudnut Shop is an institution in C'ville. Not an impressive facility, simply the best donuts in town. Krispy Kreme came and went. A new shop with much fanfare arrived recently. I've tried them all and Spudnuts remains my favorite.
