Don't let the name fool you; Fractured Prune has fabulous donuts! There are tons of options, plus you can create your own donuts. My kids love the Blueberry Hill, can't get enough of them. Sadly nothing else comes close when it comes to breakfast; my kids aren't even excited when I offer to make homemade on pancakes and eggs-they would... More

On our recent trip to the beach, I had my first fresh fractured prune donut. It literally melted in my mouth. The donut was more of a cake donut, not the Krispy Kreme doughy kind. I'm sad there isn't one by my house, but my hips will thank me. The staff were very friendly and I would gladly go back... More

We finally got to visit Fractured Prune after a year long wait. Neither my husband or I are big fans of cake donuts, but these were so good we went back the next day for more! As advertised, the donuts are made fresh pretty much as you order them. Once you decide the flavors you want, they dip them right... More

I loved this place...To the point where I want to bring the franchise to my hometown (as there are none around.) It's a genius concept - they make your doughnuts hot and fresh when you walk in and you choose what "sauce" and when topping to go on each one. Customize to your hearts desire! The people were super friendly... More

I love the fractured prune in Rehoboth. It is one of my favorite places to visit. The people who own it are always there & always super friendly. They greet you when you enter & even wave "goodbye". I have always had great service and this past week was no exception. They even gave the kids temporary tattoos of the... More

Always a go to place. Hot doughnuts with awesome toppings. Lately leaning toward the more basic selections, but the kids love the variety.

I have wanted to stop at teh Fractured Prune for some time, but never got the chance. WELL, this was well worth my wait. The owner and staff were top notch in spite of the busy atmosphere, and I will make sure to make this a MUST on our next trip to the Beach.

I love love love Fractured Prune! My husband and I go to get doughnuts a few times a month as a treat. My favorite is Strawberry Shortcake. If you haven't tried them you really should go have the best doughnuts out there!

The staff is great and the donuts are warm. Further, there is more variety than any other donut shop I've seen from the standpoint of gazes and composition, but it should be said that these are all cake donuts, no crullers, or filled donuts to be had. Now, the "coffee." This was the weakest, least flavorful coffee I think I've... More

Do not go here if you are eating healthy or on a diet. Do go if you want a sugar treat -- hot donuts which melt in your mouth with a multitude of choices of sugary toppings. I got ONE sugar and cinnamon. It was sublime. Glad I tried it. Not sure I will ever be back because my teeth... More
