The donuts are excellent every time we go there. The staff are always kind, patient and helpful. This is a must stop spot in Grand Marais.

They do have the best donuts ever, but be sure to order some of their coffee. That is also a star of the show.

I can honestly say that these were the best cake donuts I have ever had. The were still hot, crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. They didn't have the weird oily aftertaste you can get with some donuts. The glazed donuts were better than Krispy Kreme too.

Good donuts for sure. Served from a small facility along a well traveled tourist area. This place has a reputation not unlike Tobies and their caramel rolls. Personally I would not go way out my way to buy pricy donuts. Hmmm.

This was a must visit place on our Grand Marais visit. We had heard how good the donuts were so we were excited to try them for ourselves. They were amazing! The only disappointment was we didn't buy more.

A must visit every time we go to Grand Marias. If you know what you want use the small walk up window no long lines.

World's Best Donuts offers a wide variety of donuts at very reasonable prices. Originally, I had planned to to go there just once during my stay in Grand Marais. But, the donuts were so delicious that I had to go back there several times. The service was excellent, so the waiting line moved quickly.

Ok so after 4 years of visiting we finally gave in. And we were NOT disappointed! The long johns are light and the maple and chocolate icing is delicious:)

I have eaten these donuts when they are still warm, and they are wonderful. The same donuts, eaten mid afternoon are mid level at best. It's a fun stop in a fun town, but get there early enough to eat them while they are hot.
