The Donuts are consistently good! However, I would by no means place this as the #2 restaurant in Grand Marias. After all, they are just donuts, not a full fledged meal. This is the first time we have been there where they had reduced priced donuts.....these were donuts that were not shaped up to par. Still very good! World's Best... More

I'm not a donut fan so I just asked for what was warm and got the plain one and it was very good. Atmosphere charming. Young kids staff not friendly but fast. Several donut lovers in the group agreed they were the best.

How can you take a trip to Grand Marias and not get one of the "world's best donuts"? haha, Actually the donuts are really good, but the staff is not really friendly. It is such a cute little dive and hole in the wall, that it is fun to go to, but wish people would have a smile on their... More

These are no grocery store doughnuts! Still fresh, still warm, delicious! If you go to Grand Marais, you can't not go to Worlds Best Doughnuts!

A great little stop for a fresh, and still warm, treat! You can't beat the price, too. Love the taste of those home-made donuts!

The price was nice but not a huge selection and the taste was just ok not anything super special. Maybe would have been better if we had went earlier in the day.

This was our 68th time...well whatever. Who is counting? The best donuts I've ever had. Better than SA, Holiday, Kwik Trip and yes, even Krispy kreme. If you want some good old fashioned calories, this is the place to stop!

Couldn't visit the N Shore without going to WBD. My son has celiac disease and didn't think they would have gluten free anything. They had gluten free chocolate donuts with chocolate frosting and raspberry muffins. They come in 2 packs for about $2.25. Expensive but given my sons dietary needs they were worth it to see the chocolate smile on... More

Never go to Grand Marais without stopping for a treat! The fried, glazed donuts are killer! You better get there early, or you will miss out. Once the donuts are gone you have to return the next day! 😋

Loved the donuts we got, worth the wait in line. Only thing that would have made it better is if they were hot!
