My wife and I stopped at Spudnuts prior to visiting Monticello. The donuts were light and very flavorful. Thank God we don't live in Charlottesville, because we would weight 500 pounds each because of them! They are a very popular place, with a constant line of customers while we were there enjoying our breakfast. And we can see why with... More

An institution in Charlottesville and deservedly so! I'm of the opinion that potato flour makes everything taste better and Sputnuts proves it's true with donuts.

Best donuts ever! Made from potato flour. Light, delicious. My fav is the blueberry spuddie. Get there early, because they start baking spudnuts at 5 in the morning and people come from all over to get one. They might run out if you wait too late.

Forget fast food donuts, forget Duck Donuts, forget all the fad "sh.t" donuts out there. These are the best ever. The staff are fast and friendly. Sure its not pretty but it's local, its quaint, and the donuts don't leave by the bag they leave buy the boxes! I usually got a couple for the nurses at UVA when I... More

Gotta try these. Bought a few dozen for friends and they loved them. A Cville must. The place doesn't look like much but the donuts speak for themselves.

This is a little gem just off the downtown mall. You must try these donuts, the are simply the most delicious donuts you will ever eat. This shop was established way before the current donut craze started. If you are visiting from out of town, this is a place you don't want to miss.

Spudnuts have been an institution in Charlottesville for years. The shop is an old school coffee shop/donut bakery know for using potato flour to make the donuts. Introduced my kids to these treats and loved rocking it old school. Nothing fancy, but good old fashioned donuts.

Get there early 'cause when they sell out, they close for the day! The doughnuts are made fresh and have lots of great flavor. This is a local family business with multiple generations running the shop. It is a true Charlottesville institution with the best doughnuts in town.

Its a place one has to go when in C'ville. The donuts are excellent, but the bear claw is divine. I want one!
