We love the Donut Friar!!! Absolutely delicious donuts, rolls and Danishes as well as a wide variety of hot and cold drinks. We would go out of our way to stop here.

Take a trip off the beaten path and enjoy these heavenly donuts! Located in the Village..... Just walk right in and order your favorite donut. You would be a fool not to try a barvarian cream or the cake glaze.

Excellent, fast, quaint, friendly, clean. Got a bunch of donuts & drove to the park to eat them stream side. Heaven. The powdered sugar Bavarian creme filled is fantastic.

This place was steps from our hotel and had the best eclairs ever! They could use an upgrade on coffee but I'm still giving it 5 stars because the donuts were great!

I love donuts! And this is not the place to go for someone who loves donuts and wants to maintain some sort of good health! All joking aside this place has amazing donuts. I partook in the cinnamon cake and Boston cream. Both were outstanding.

We stayed right around the block from the village which made walking to the Donut Friar very convienant. They have excellent pastries and are reasonably priced. I recommend trying the pillow puff, so good! It's a must stop when in Gatlinburg 😃

Location is in a charming village-like area constructed to look like a European setting right off the main drag in town. Small store with limited seating. Variety of fresh baked goods. Made to order coffee drinks. Fair pricing. A few tables to eat inside but...More

You must get donuts here one morning. Prices are very reasonable and the donuts are very fresh. I have not had a donut like this in a very long time. I will definitely return on my next visit.
