“Best $7.75 we spent on Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Hands down the best donuts we have ever eaten. Do not miss this spot if you are in Carolina Beach. We went before dark on the boardwalk though...

“It's just a must at Carolina Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

No trip to Carolina Beach would be complete without a stop at Britt's Donuts! It has been around for decades due to the loyal people that come back every time they go to Carolina Beach for those delicious donuts! It is right on the Boardwalk. I suggest only ordering as many donuts as your group can eat that day. They are served in a bag and don't keep as well as KK's or DD's that are in a box.

“That's a good donut!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Tasty donuts. Nothing fancy. Simple hot yeast donuts with glaze but very fresh and good. Coffee was good but not great. Very reasonable prices.

“Enjoy the wait”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

The other reviewers must not have had a fresh donut before. Nothing special here except they're right out of the fryer fresh.The downside is you have to wait 20 minutes in line because they apparently have the same set up they started with in 1939...one small fryer, one small rack to add the glaze, one line.
