Our family loves World Best Donuts. We are locals and every time we go, we leave completely satisfied. Our four kids each have their favorites and my wife and I love to splurge on some donuts each Sunday after Church. Great place, great service, and Lake Superior is all around you!!

If we are anywhere in the vicinity of WBD, WE ARE THERE!! Always a favorite with my family, but get there in time!!! When the donuts are gone.....they're gone! I live for the skizzles, but all other varieties that I have tried are very good as well. I'm not sure what the secret is, but they are soooo much better... More

Busy little donut shop in Grand Marais. We go at least once when we visit. Fun to get a couple and a cup if coffe and sit outside and people watch. Reasonable price and nice variety. I love the custard filled Bismarck. Staff are friendly. They are open seasonally and closed the winter months.

Tiny place, very hot inside...The donuts are talked about a lot, but we didn't think they were any higher quality then any other bakery.

The claim as the 'worlds best donuts" has gone unchallenged by thousands of tourists. Ever tried a 'skizzle'? Make sure you ask for a warm one. You can stand inside in the waiting line.. good place for first timers. Or you can quickly get served, if you know what you want at the "outside window" which is in the outside... More

Not quite sure why, nor how they do it but these are the best donuts. But be sure to go before it is too late in the day. They close at 2pm or earlier if they run out of donuts.

We've requested that our aunt bring some back to Iowa every time she comes to visit. The donuts are so soft and warm!

Eat them fresh, very yummy and worth a little wait. Cute place and nice people. I'm glad we were there before they closed for the winter. Don't miss.

This isn't really a restaurant although they do have seating for maybe 15 people? Worlds Best Donuts for sure! I can never make up my mind on which ones to get so being this is the only place I will eat a donut, I get a few different kinds and enjoy every bite! They usually have a long line waiting... More
