5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

One of the greatest donuts on the planet. I could literally live off of Britts for the rest of my life. Don't be shy. Get one!

“Rainy weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Opening day Friday lines were to long for us. We tried again on Saturday and it was the same. So Sunday morning we were there at 8:30am and enjoyed the best glazed donut with coffee and people watching as always.

“Not just a donut it is a state of mind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

There is nothing better than eating warm Britt's Donuts while sitting on the beach! It isn't beach season until Britt's opens.
Located on the boardwalk at Carolina Beach, it is not difficult to find because you see the line of people waiting to order. Do not be intimidated by the line as it will move fast.
Britt's donuts are very unique and are not like a typical donut; the donuts are a little crisp with glaze on the outside and melt in your mouth on the inside. It is almost like a combination of a funnel cake and a donut.
Britt's Donuts are just wonderful and a must if one is in the area.

“Move over Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Can I compare Britt's to DD or KK? No. It's a very different type of donuts. Yes, it's fried and has a hole in the middle, but they are not cakey like Dunkin' or sweet like Krispy. I have many friends who come into town and have Britt's on their "must do list" after the beach. Britt's is located on the boardwalk and is a small, bar-like store. The line usually runs down the boardwalk in the summer. The menu is short because they serve one type of donut and that's it since 1912. If you go frequently, you will see the same people serving because it's a family business. The walls are aligned with local awards and article because it really is a local gem.
