Wonderful donuts. Great small-town atmosphere. And they're better if you go early (the place opens at 6:30) while they're still warm. Coffee's good, too--which isn't always the case in small town cafes. This little place takes their donuts very seriously. They're about as good as I've found anywhere. If I lived in Grand Marais, you could probably find me here... More

The donuts are fantastic and this is a place we will stop at each time we visit Grand Marais. The name of the place sets expectations a bit too high though. There is a line on weekends and it feels a bit over rated.

The donut was good, but they had run out of my favorite coffee. That's okay, sitting outside watching all the other customers was still a treat and ran into a friend from work - both about 5 hours north! This was about my 5th stop here and it is THE place to go for a good cup of coffee and... More

Good donuts not up to the high we kept hearing about but a good treat. Nice big rolls a bit pricey though.

We stayed across the street from the World's Best Donuts during our trip and were looking up restaurants in the area on TripAdvisor and saw that they were rated #1, so we had to try them. Well everything people write is true, you do see a line out the door most of the day, but the wait is not bad... More

Don't let the line out the door scare you off. Not the fanciest place, but by far the best donuts ever. A must to stop at when in Grand Marais.

I have probably passed by this place on many occasions and never noticed or stopped before a friend said I must stop on this trip. I was not disappointed. Their baked goods are magically delicious. Wish I would've picked up a dozen to bring home. YUM.

Can't make a trip to Grand Maria's without a stop for wonderful fresh donuts. Loved the skizzles!!! The line was long to get in but it was worth the wait.

The worlds best donuts never disappoints - they are truly a gem of this town. The people there are very friendly and the food is just outstanding - they truly live up to their name! Grab some donuts, something to drink, and enjoy them on the shore outside!

My dad was a baker and visiting WBD brings back so many great memories! The donuts are awesome. I especially love the Skizzle! The coffee is great and I now have a collection of mugs also!
