“Over rated & old”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Don't go there in early spring, doughnuts were cold and stale. Tasted like they were three days old.

“Must Do”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

When in Oak Bluffs, be sure to head to this screen door after 7:30pm - order quickly (and be sure your order includes a hot apple fritter) and enjoy your treat while standing in the parking lot with the rest of those who are in the know. SO FUN.

“a Vineyard Institution”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

You won't believe the line that stretches out for the apple fritters and donuts! They are yummy, best eaten warm. By the next day, the sugar and fat congeal and it's not a pretty sight. Best apple fritters I've ever had.

I still have friends from London who rave about the apple fritters. Definitely an institution.

“Best late night snack!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Hot fresh donuts literally from the back door of a bakery. Late night treats can't get any better than that. Only open late at night. Great for after bar or a late dinner dessert. Try the Apple Fritters - warm and moist.

“Back Door Donuts”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

How could you NOT like this place? Fresh donuts right out of the grease? Amazing! I took my 80 year old mom to the Vineyard, and when people asked what she liked best, she said "The donuts!"
