“A Must stop in Gatlinburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

If you like donuts you won't want to miss this place. I had their glazed cake donut and it was one of the best donuts I've had before. Ate 1 there and took another 6 to go for later but wish I had more now. I do wish they had better coffee there but there are other places you can get that in Gatlinburg. Do yourself a favor and go here when in Gatlinburg, the only regret you may have is not buying enough for later.

“The Real Deal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I'm a snooty person when it comes to scratch made pastries, but everything about this place has been an incredible value and exceeds my expectations for confectionery delights!

“Best Donut Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

When my family and I went to Gatlinburg we came across the Donut Friar and after one donut, I had to return everyday to enjoy another. They are the best I have ever had. I am always craving their glazed donut. It is definitely our favorite place to go while in the Village.

“Delicious donuts”

We loved the shops in the Village area, including the donut friar. What a fun part of town, off the main street. This had great donuts coffee and hot cider. Nice break spot!

“Great Donuts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Some of the best cake donuts I have ever eaten. Nice selection with very courteous service. There are a few tables but most people carry out their purchases. If you like donuts, do not miss trying the Donut Friar.
