Amazing cake donuts! Our boys love the white icing with sprinkles and cinnamon twists too. Very lucky to have Carol Lees in Blacksburg!

Wonderful yummy donuts. My favorite is cream filled chocolate covered donuts. Every Sunday, while visiting us, Our great grandson takes a trip to Carol Lee's to get his sprinkled donut--preferably blue sprinkles--with his great grandpa. This is his special treat.

Try the blueberry cake or chocolate cake donuts. You will never go back to any other. You will be completely spoiled.

The first donuts you need to try is the blueberry! All of Carol Lee's donuts are yummy! Much better that the chain stores!

Simply the best donuts ever. I would say that they ruined the love I had for other donuts like Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme. I have moved away from Blacksburg and still haven't found a donut place as good. My husband and I used to pick up some donuts and take them to the duck pond to enjoy a Sunday... More

The donuts were fresh and good, but not as good as a Krispy kreme. The coffee however was awful; really watery and no real milk or creme to use...only artificial coffee mate. Building itself is "a little tired" and takeout only (nowhere to sit).

Carol Lee makes the best donuts anywhere. They are truly the best donuts around this area and the variety is wonderful.

Get to Carol Lee's Donuts early, especially on Game Day, because they can sell out. Carol Lee Donuts taste like doughnuts should taste, especially if they've just come out of the oven. Whenever I have company, I go there early to get the sweet confections so craved by my family. I only gave Carol Lee Donuts 4 stars because their... More

At first glance it looks like pretty much any small doughnut shop. Walk inside the staff is friendly and the prices quite reasonable. Then you bite into your first doughnut. They look pretty much like any raised doughnut but they are so light and fluffy and they seem almost melt in your mouth. If I get back to Blacksburg I... More

These donuts cannot be beat-the best in town, in VA!! When my daughter returns home for a visit, she takes a dozen back to Philly to share with her friends! I often take 2 dozen to church.
