“Delicious as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Yum! A must do while on the Vineyard. Ultra fresh donuts open only in the evenings. Plan on arriving by 630 and waiting in line but totally worth it. They also have your choice of fresh donut made into an ice cream Sunday. Apple fritters are huge and the best!

“FUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

This is an after dark excursion! Our friends took us to The Back Door one night after dinner. I'd never seen anything like it.....a long line of people in a small parking lot waiting to order freshly made donuts. I felt like I was doing something illegal in the dark! There's a long list on the side of the building with all the choices of donuts. A couple of funny posters, too, that you must read! We all bought different donuts, and shared one delicious apple fritter. A fun experience, and yummy donuts, too.

“Get the fritter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Don't forget your cash. The fritter costs $4.50 but it is huge and warm and delicious (that's what she said)

A definite must try on your stay in the vineyard.
Kids liked the Boston creme, too.
