Wonderful delicious HOT doughnuts - not much more needs to be said. The coffee is NOT the best thing as the new owners might think - we need the HOT doughnuts and the creme puffs!

Best time to go is when the hot now sign is lit and then highly recommend the original. They melt in your mouth. Good coffee as well. Fun for kids to watch the donuts being made and going through the curtain of glaze.

We visited on a Thursday night around 9pm. The kids and adults loved watching the production of hot, fresh doughnuts from start to finish. The pastrStaff were very friendly and helpful. It was very busy the evening we went, but the booths and counter space were kept immaculately clean. We decided it's a new family tradition whenever we visit Raleigh!

Dropped off the daughter around the corner for the SAT so we took advantage of the hot donuts sign. What a great way to start a Saturday. Watching the donuts be made is icing on the cake. It's hard to beat a hot Krispy Kreme fresh off the line. Service was excellent and employees were extremely pleasant.

Light, airy, scrumptious, and irresistable! This location makes the donuts right there in front of you. Breakfast, afternoon treat, or late night indulgence... I crave these things!

Apart from the worst drive through layout I've ever seen, how could you say anything bad about hot donuts? you can't! Go now! (whether now is morning, noon or night...its always the right time for donuts!)

I mean come on, the sign in the window says it all. Take your kids here and let them marvel at the wondrous donut making machine!

Smelling the donuts being made, and you can watch them being made also. Nothing like a hot donut right off the production line. You get a free Glazed donut if you ask. Great for the kids.

As in you need the hat, you need to watch the boiling donuts and this is a Raleigh right of passage place for sure. Plus you can watch people barf in the parking lot during the fundraiser race. Hey, can't get enough donuts!

Centrally located with fresh hot donuts. Liked that they had a unique donut in blueberry cake which is rare to find in my home town. People do drive like nut jobs though in the parking lot so watch out as they race around the building to the drive through
