i stop in here in the summer and usually just have the imperfect donuts unless there aren't any. Everything they make rocks!

Unique small town donut place. Nothing special but in Grand Marais so it makes it unique. We went there when we were in town. Donuts were nothing special but Grand Marais is!

Who doesn't love homemade doughnuts?!?! These were great and we loved the selection. We even bought some to take home and they tasted great the next day!

As a local Grand Marais-er, I treat myself to these wonderful treats often. Grab a cup of coffee and a delicious treat and enjoy the nearby beach. There isn't much seating inside. But there is plenty of beach outside! My favorite is the maple bar, but I've never had a donut there that was bad.

I'm not really a big donut fan, I can take them or leave them, but I can not leave these donuts! I had a long john and it was still warm! Perfect crispness and sinful gooey filling. I will be sure to get them every time I am in Grand Marais now that I know!

On a cool fall morning, nothing is better than a skizzle and coffee from World's Best Donuts. The coffee is OK, but the pastries are very good. Part of the experience is the small building and all of the smells of fresh donuts. It wouldn't be the same if you visited a similar business in a metropolitan setting. This is... More

I cannot attest to whether or not these are the "worlds best" but the cinnamon sugar donut has got to be close. Just crisp enough on the outside and wonderfully chewy on the inside with plenty of cinnamon and sugar. It was amazing! I'm wishing I had one right now!

Every visit to Grand Marais has us stopping here to get their worlds best cinnamon donut. Been a fan for over 35 years. A trip to the north woods would not be complete without a stop here. Stopped today and got two dozen for the trip home. Try one while they are still warm from the kitchen and you will... More

In the summer, there is always a long line but it moves rather quickly. The donuts taste so fresh that you can't just eat one! There are quite a few varieties to choose from. There is a small dining area if you want to enjoy your coffee and donuts sitting down. People literally come from all over the world to... More
