The best donuts in the galaxy! I use to get there at opening and take a few dozen to class. The White Delights are pure heaven, but need to cool first thing in the morning. The counter folks are marvelous and always friendly. In my opinion, this is a Blacksburg institution!

Don't miss the blueberry cake donut, but all of them are amazing. These fresh donuts can't be beat and are often requested by our out of town guests.

Carol Lee Donuts have become a staple of Wednesday mornings. I can't begin to say enough about how delicious theses fresh made daily doughnuts are! My personal favorite is glazed with coconut but you'll just have to stop in and try one (or two) for yourself. Keep in mind, they only take cash.

A must stop every time we travel to or through Blacksburg. I remember when they were downtown and wish they still were, but the donuts are worth the drive up Main Street.

Best donuts ever. I call this the Krispy Kreme of Blacksburg. It may be old and small but the doughnuts are always fresh!!

As new residents in Blacksburg, my family and I were curious to visit the donut shop around the corner from our home. We have been impressed with the quality of the food and the selection ever since. It is now one of our favorite places to go on Saturday mornings. My favorite is the chocolate cake donut (without icing). Sometimes... More

A Blacksburg institution, Carol Lee has been making wonderful donuts here for decades (nothing edgy and urban--just great donuts with great toppings/fillings/etc.). I get them for my students, many of whom have heard about them from their parents and grandparents!
