Went to Britt's Donuts this morning to get a dozen for breakfast. They were fresh and hot! Very crispy. They are a great icon at Carolina Beach and have been for years. Just remember....they are Cash Only. They only serve the one glazed style donut. Good donut and much cheaper than krispy kreme.

If you read on what to do around Kure/Carolina Beach - you are going to be going here! Awesome, FRESH donuts! They open at 8:30am so if you are an earlier riser that wants a donut with your coffee, I would recommend picking a half dozen or dozen the night before! They are still really good!

Hot, fresh, sweet and simply delicious...all words that describe these amazing donuts. I have a very unique flavor and are best right out of the hot oil. These famous donuts are a must for anyone in the Wilmington, North Carolina beach area!!! They go down very easy and I made a meal out of them! A must-see attraction!

I was delighted to take my nephews on a small run to the amusement area. The BEST part was the donut shop. You only have one choice of donut but was well worth the stop!

Britt's has become a family tradition for us that started with my husband's family when he was a child vacationing with his family. This is not your Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts... nowhere comes close to the goodness of a fresh warm Britt's Donut. Look forward to the summer just for this place every year!! LOVE BRITT'S!!

I read the read the Tripadvisor reviews and listened to what the other tourists said about Britt's donuts so we decided to see if they were for real. They are. They are not just flour, sugar, and oil. There is some other ingredient that makes them the best. Of course they are cooked just right so they are tasty, fluffy,... More

I read the reviews, saw numerous things posted online and I went to Carolina Beach just to experience it for myself and it was great, and yes it is better than the major NC donut company. Go early evening to beat the long line!

Thank Rittej01
