I always go here when I am in the area. The doughnuts are always fresh and made to order. I am never disappointed. Sometimes the line is crazy long though but it is worth the wait.

This is a one of a kind donut experience. The setting, the business model and the donuts are from days gone by. Coffee and one kind of donuts and cash only. Expect lines. The donuts are beyond phenomenal. Don't miss a chance to delight in Britts!

You will have to wait in a long line but you will be so glad you did. Doughnuts are freshly cooked, are hot and crispy dripping with secret recipe glaze. Scrumptious.

Britts donuts is aCarolina beach fixture. It is a tradition that should not be missed. Even if you have to wait in line for a while which sometimes happens, the small nondescript cup of hot coffee and a glazed doughnut right out of the cooker is the wait.

The best hot glazed donuts you will ever eat. You can't just eat one. I have enjoyed Britt's donuts every summer for 40 years!

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
