Britt's Donuts absolutely melt in your mouth. Well worth the wait! Only open during the Warm months. If there is a long line, go to the counter inside and if there is a stool available, take it. Your wait will be much less!

This is an experience you should not pass up. These are a unique and wonderful treat. They make 1 type of doughnut and they make it the best.

If you are in the area you simply must visit this place. Nothing fancy. Just good donuts at an area landmark. I’m always sad when I’m there innoff season and they aren’t open. Don’t miss Britt’s donuts!

It's not a trip to Carolina Beach without a visit to Britt's. Only glazed donuts, but they are a must have on every visit. You will not be disappointed.

Britt's Donut Shop is a locally-owned favorite, not just for locals, but also for tourists as well! People come from all over just to get these donuts. They are always served hot and fresh.
