Wanted to try this place after seeing the TA reviews and so glad I did. This place is delicious! Had a chocolate chipper cake donut. I've never understood the hype with Krispy Kreme. If you're looking for a good donut, try this place.

I ordered a caramel latte and a coconut donut. The latte was pretty average (not a huge coffee drinker, so they all pretty much taste the same to me), but the donut was amazing! Not sure what I was expecting, but it was a nice, crispy outside with a soft (but not too dense) inside. White frosting with flaked coconut... More

The smell is heavenly. I tried donuts and cheese pastry both were excellent. My favorite place for donuts. My only complaint is how crowded they are. They just shows they are great.

These donuts did not disappoint! If you are near here, GO! My husband had been looking forward to getting a dozen donuts to eat over our trip, and he was beyond excited once we got them. The chocolate donut was my desert two different nights, and it was incredible!

I love this place. The glazed croissants are the best. I come here every time I'm in town. Highly recommend! Way in the back of the Villiage shops.

Anyway, had the coconut donut, the bavarian one, and a friar special (which was filled with buttercream icing). These were all very good and... More

First time ever been to the Friar and wish I could go again soon. My husband and I like cream filled donuts, but we are particular. I was somewhat cautious, but went for the Friar Special and they melt in your mouth. Delicious. Plus you get to walk in The Village to the shop. Very beautiful.
