All of the pastries at Donut World are fabulous. They’re perfect for treats at business meetings as well as party gatherings. Their Apple Fritters are the very best ever.

We stopped in on a rainy day for donuts and coffe. We got blueberry cake, maple-bacon, creme-filled and glazed and they were all great. The service was friendly and the coffee was hot. Very well done.

Donut World is my favorite donut shop. Everything is always fresh and tasty. But my favorite is the apple fritter calorie bomb. It's crispy on the edges and soft and gooey in the middle. It is worth every single calorie!

Donut World has a few locations in the triad area. Im not sure if they started around here or not but it sure feels like it when you visit one. They offer fresh made donuts and coffee with a small family smile. I have always...received excellent customer service and fresh products when visiting them (almost weekly :D). Give them a visit and see if you agree!More

The donuts here were very fresh and well cooked. We started with the glazed twist, which is my gold standard for comparing donut shops. It was a little smaller than some places, but had a wonderful light chewy texture with good taste and just the...right amount of glaze. It could have stayed just a tiny bit longer in the fryer. We also tried the glazed buttermilk, but it was heavier and too sweet for my taste. We're looking forward to going back and trying some of the other choices.More

We were in the area so we decided to stop by Donut World for a lunch dessert, There were a number of things we did not like about this establishment. Although the only person in the place before we walked in was a staff member,...the tables were not clean and picked up, as you would hope to see. The donuts in the case were labeled with item names, but not the prices. There was a good selection of items. I got an apple fritter and hubby had a chocolate filled donut pastry with chocolate frosting and chocolate chips on top. The price for the two items was $3.42 - a bit pricey, we thought. Also, when we got up to leave, there was not a garbage can available to discard your napkin and empty donut bag. The items tasted okay, although I expect they were made early in the morning. We will not return to Donut World.More

so went to get donuts while in town at usual Gate city Blvd. location and never has it ever cost me like it did yesterday. I got a mixed dozen donuts and 2 cinnamon rolls and paid over $18. I find this too be way...too expensive. Their donuts and specialties are good but not at the cost they make you pay now.More

Go early for the freshest doughnuts. Love the fritters and bear claws. Always reliable quality and consistency.

This place has a good selection of basic donuts. Bear claws, cake donuts, glazed donuts and some specialties. My husband had an old fashion chocolate iced donut I had a plain cake donut with chocolate chips on top. I am a purist with donuts so...I wish I had been able to get mine without the chips. On the way out I discovered a fried donut with chocolate icing stuffed with chocolate chips, I wonder if I should have gotten that one instead of my usual favorite.More

These donuts are fresh and light, with the requisite light crunch to the bite. Nice variety, wonderful aroma.
