Best donuts - always hot & fresh! Bring cash bc that's all they accept, but the prices are good. For shorter lines, go mid morning to afternoon during the week. Week nights & weekend mornings have super long lines. Worth the wait, but better if you can avoid it.

although you have to wait in line to get to go orders, you can go inside sit down and be waited on immediately. My daughter and I always have a cup of milk with ours when we get our donuts and always order at least a half a dozen to go. Again well worth the wait.

I'm not a donut person. I thought I'd treat my 8 year old son who loves them and of course everyone in the area recommends Britt's. And now I see why. I love that a little shop that's only makes one type of donut has been around since 1978! Bring cash. Buy more than you think you need and expect... More

I can't stand sweets especially pastries. However, this place stole my heart. I love everything about it. I even had one on a Chop's Deli sandwich. It was amazing, gotta try it!

Great service. Great donuts. Great price. Nothing like hot donuts to start your day. Our family couldn't wait to try them. Recommended by a friend.

Not much to say except it's a great donut! Glaze is similar to Krispy Kreme but inside is much airier. A little tip: reheat in a 250 oven for leftovers!

I really wanted to think this was the best donut ever because of all the talk. It was warm and tasty and iconic, so I'm glad I tried it. The shop is nostalgic with diner stools at the L shaped bar with counter service. 1.00 per donut is a good deal and folks get bags of them to go &... More

Britts donuts are pulled out of the fryer, drizzled with glaze, served hot! Absolutely heavenly when you smell that sweet yeasty donut and then pure bliss when you eat it. These are the best donuts ever! Britts serves only one type of donut, milk, coffee to go with it, thats it. Donuts are 1 USD.

Great donuts and fresh made. You can watch them cook. I would say the best I have ever had and always a big crowd.

Be prepared to wait in line and take cash, they won't take a card. Well worth the wait!!!! Reasonably priced and served warm.
