“DONUTS !!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

All you need to know is that these are great donuts from a second generation family run place. Come early for the best selection, grab a dozen to go or sit with a cup of coffee and several to hang with the regulars. Oh the glazed.......................

“Cheap, Delicious Donuts”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We'd first been to Spudnut years ago, but I think that it would be good to review it now that we have returned. Spudnut offers a few different varieties of their donuts made from potato flour (hence the name Spudnuts). For less than $7, you can get a dozen delicious donuts, each offering a good taste that is significantly more filling than a typical donut. The hot chocolate and coffee are also very cheap and good. If you need cheap, delicious food fast, this is definitely the place to go in Charlottesville.

“The kids loved it!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Our son is a donut lover (but so are the parents) so we had breakfast here while visiting Charlottesville. The donuts were light and good and it was fun to watch the people who came in to buy donuts. We will return again. It is a nice family run business! P.S. they close when they run out of donuts. We got here around 9:00, but by the time we were ready to leave at 10:00, people were still streaming in.

“Best Blueberry Donuts anywhere”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I've eaten a lot of donuts in my day but this place has to rank with the best. It's not a chain and it shows. There's art on the walls from children photo's of important local events and most importantly great donuts.
We saw other reviews on the internet talking about this place so we thought it would be fun for the kids. Our goal on vacation is to try restaurants or food we can't get at home and to avoid eating at nationwide chains. This is a place I would go out of my way to stop at.

“Donuts please!!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

This local, well-established, family owned business puts out the BEST donuts! They have made an art of keeping it simple! Did not know ahead of time you need cash to make a purchase! Limited cash meant limited purchase. Parking lot and shop fill up fast! Have limited hours of operation. Definitely recommend adding this to one of your dining experiences in Charlottesville!
