It's just a donut shop, but ordering your hot, fresh, yummy donuts through the back door in an alley after waiting in line for 30 minutes was an experience I will not soon forget. Open 7:30 PM - 1:00 AM, are the most ridiculous hours - but donuts for dessert are a perfect way to end a lovely day on the vineyard.

The experience is probably one that I think of when I think of Martha's vinyard. At $1 a donut with great donuts it is easy to say this place has the best value on Martha's vinyard. The donuts are mind-blowing and the apple fritters and cinimmon rolls are even better than the donuts I'm not sure if there's a word to describe how great they are. If you didn't rate this place 5 stars the hospital is on 1 hospital road, oak bluff, Ma.

On the Fourth of July weekend, our family waited in line for a half an hour for fresh, hot donuts. They were certainly worth the wait! My husband got the Charlie, a donut of his choice (Boston Cream) in a cup with vanilla or chocolate ice cream and whipped cream. A donut sundae that's unlike anything we'd ever tried before. It was outstanding, with the hot donut melting the ice cream. Delicious and very filling. I had the glazed and that too was very, very good. Would definitely go back anytime we're on the Vineyard.

This place truly represents what Martha's Vineyard is about. It's a great place to meet people and experience the vineyard. Best to get the latest donut recommendations while waiting in line, just talk to people around you. The apple fritters are the tradition, but try other stuff too. The hot chocolate on chocolate donuts are my personal favorite. I've had better donuts, but the back door experience is quite charming and an important tradition for islanders. The town recently tried to close it up, but the islanders prevailed in preserving the back door experience (in much the same way the islanders have prevailed in preserving the overall charm and feel of the vineyard). I highly recommend this place to experience!
