I probably can't say anything that hasn't already been said about Britt's. I had heard from many people that I needed to stop for a doughnut as they were so good! Well, they didn't disappoint! Think Krispie Kreame that has just been pulled from the fryer. These doughnuts are simple, sweet, crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle,... More

These doughnuts are amazing! They are delicious and are homemade. I've never ace tasted donuts quite like this because they are very original even though they only serve glazed doughnuts. The place is also in a good location because it's located in the boardwalk. Definitely come her ego try delicious donuts and to have fun!!!!

They only serve one thing and the line is hundreds long all the time. A Carolina Beach requirement when they're open. Bring cash or you'll have to visit the ATM across the boardwalk.

I don't like donuts but I'll fight beach traffic and wait a half hour in line for one of these. The counter is for eat in only and rarely backed up. The 50 person deep line is to buy to go. Treat yourself, sit at the counter and order a couple with a cup of cold milk. Try to let... More

Been to Britts twice during vacations and they are good. Always busy but line goes quickly and worth the wait. Nothing better than hot donuts!

Established in 1939, Britts makes only one kind of doughnut. A glazed doughnut with a unique crunchy crust unlike no other glazed doughnut. This place has been a Carolina Beach Boardwalk tradition for decades.

This is a must visit donut shop!! They have in my opinion the best donuts I have had in the Carolinas. You may have to wait 15 - 20 mins because of the lines but they are worth the wait. They are tasty, fluffy and are best served warm.

Doughnuts are delish! I had mine with milk. You can sit at the counter & eat them or take them to go. The place is nothing fancy, but the doughnuts are truly superb. I bet you can't eat just one! Expect a line during the summer months, but definitely worth the wait.
