First time experiencing the Fractured Prune in 30 years. We went 3 different morning at 2 different locations just last week when at the beach for the week.
Everyone was sooo nice and the doughnuts rock! Seriously they just melted in your mouth. We tried serveral different flavors and can't decide which ones we liked the best. You really need to think outside the box when you look at the menu. Lemonade is very good - Blueberry Hill is excellent - OC Sand is very good, I could go on and on. You need to check this place out yourself!

I’ve made this point before in reviewing other restaurants in Rehoboth (though the Prune is not technically in Rehoboth) – the bar is very high for restaurants of any type in Rehoboth. If this place was in Bethany it might be recommendable, but if you go to the one in Rehoboth you’ve missed a chance for the smoothies and healthy nosh of Greenman, the crepes of Cafe Papillion, breakfast at Crystal Diner, Retro Cafe or Robin Hood or coffee and nosh at Gallery Espresso or many other options. If you must have doughnuts, there is a Dunkin of Rehoboth Ave. There is just no reason to travel to this remote location to get a gimmicky doughnut that, IMHO, isn’t that good. I found the service slow and the environment depressing. That was a while ago, but I doubt I’ll be back to see if things have improved. My advice – relocate to Bethany – they need more breakfast options, Rehoboth does not.

My husband and I decided to go to the Fractured Prune one day for breakfast. It is located just South of Jungle Jims on Route One in Rehoboth Beach. They have a small parking lot on site. We parked and made our way inside the purple building.

Inside they have a few tables and chairs to dine at in addition to a t-shirt counter and the donut counter. In addition to the indoor dining, they have a few picnic benches out front IF you want to dine outdoors. On the entryway wall they have their specialty donuts listed. You can order these or make your own combination from their glazes and toppings. We ordered the OC Sand, Blueberry Hill, Black Forest and Strawberry Shortcake. It cost us $6.00 for the 1/2 dozen donuts. We also ordered a regular coffee and a hazelnut coffee, which were both really good. We were given a playing card (3 or diamonds) and told they would call our card when our donuts were done. Within 5 minutes, our half dozen of fresh hot donuts were being handed over to us in a purple donut box. We decided to eat on location, so we grabbed a seat at one of the tables. The donuts were HOT and very tasty. I really loved the OC Sand and the Bluberry Hill. We loved them SO MUCH that we decided to return the next day for another half dozen. This time we ordered the OC Sand, Bluberry Hill, Smores and Reese Cup. Again they were delicious HOT out the box. We did not eat them all this time on the 1st sitting. We followed the reheating instructions on the side of the donut box & they were still pretty good the next morning. However, after a day or so..they are not nearly as good as when they are 1st fried up! Try to eat them as soon as you get them for the best results!

Overall we had great experiences with the Fractured Prune. The donuts are really good. Our favorite is probably the OC Sand, but Blueberry Hill is a close runner-up. The coffee here was also very good--not too strong--perfect! The service was fast & pretty friendly. The atmosphere is bright, colorful and very casual. The prices are decent for the quality of donut. Plus the more you order--you get a better price per donut. One donut is $1.30, 1/2 dozen is 6.00 and a dozen is $10.50. We will definately be returning to the Fractured Prune again. It is a nice treat.

TIP: If you buy one of their logo T-shirt & wear it into the Fractured Prune, you get one free donut!

Note: In addition to donuts they serve up ice cream, hole in one (ice cream scoop on a donut), bagels and egg sandwiches. They have kids meals that are served up on a logo frisbee too.
