Ate two of the little devils with a cup of coffee - yum! Ringo's certainly takes a minimalist approach, but, after enjoying the donuts, you can only conclude that the focus is on the product. So good.

This shop consistently produces the most delicious donuts in a dozen different varieties. Try the "squealers" ... maple glazed donuts sprinkled with bacon bits. They are to die for!

Mr. Ring opened up his own donut shop several years ago after attending a pastry chef school in Colorado. This donut shop and one other are the only privately owned shops of its kind in the Hampton Roads area (all the others are chain-restaurants).
Ringo offers dozens, if not hundreds, of different varieties and comes into work at 2am to get started each day. On any given week, there are new varieties available.
Try the Squealer donut, which has bacon bits on it. Another takes donuts to the realm of Reese's, with peanut butter in the middle. All the classics are there too, with seasonal specials as well. October brings a pumpkin donut to the menu.
Ringo's prices even beat ALL of the competition (including that one other private donut shop), just $7.90 for a dozen including taxes.
Sweet, tasty, and super delicious, Ringo's donuts are so good he's looking at opening more locations.

This is a small shop but the workers are friendly and the donuts are made fresh every morning. Ringo must get up about 2 am. They have the most unusual favors such as Key lime pie, cream cheese and many others. The tastiest donuts ever and they just melt in your mouth. Ringos is a wonderful addition to Smithfield.
