“Get there early!!! Best donuts around!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Don't be intimidated by the line. Just tough it out, and be sure to know what you want went you get to the window so you don't hold up the rest of the line. Scout ahead. You'll be so glad you went!

“Get there early / Don't the line bother you !”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

The next time you go to the "island" - the one that stretches from the "Seasides" north to the Ocean Beaches, make a point to come off the island via the Toms River Bridge and seek out this gem of a doughnut shop. Completely unobtrusive, a "blip" in size, this place is Definitely worth the trip - as inconvenient as it may be ...Their selection, price, and quality is unmatched anywhere. If you get there after 8:30 AM, you'll have to wait - but the line moves quickly. It's best to buy a few extra - these fresh baked doughnuts and Danishes will seldom make it back home without you "sampling the goodies" just to be sure they're as delicious as I suggest. One more thing - when you get them home ... Do cut them in half - for what will become obvious reasons. Truly unique, Truly delicious, and possibly one of the best kept secrets at the shore. Say "good-bye" to those mass produced excuses for quality made, fresh baked breakfast goodies ... Enjoy !!

Reviewed June 30, 2014

Call ahead and try the peanut butter and jelly doughnut! Always fresh, always delicious. Everyone always asks us to bring Obcos when we visit. Try it you won't regret it!

“Best donuts on earth!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Obcos donut shop is open until the donuts made that day have sold out. That should say it all! Fresh donuts that taste like a childhood memory! Yummy!

“Homemade Donuts!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Nothing like getting up early and making your way to get fresh, still warm donuts. These are real homemade donuts, not your typical chain stuff. Get there early though as they only remain open until they sell out of what they have made.
