“World's Best”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

What more is there to say than that? Delicious and lots a choices. You have to stop in and have at least one, but you'll probably want more.

“Really is the best cake donut in the world”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I make it a priority to eat at World's Best Donuts every time I visit the north shore. Their cinnamon sugar cake donut is simply the finest donut I have ever eaten. Timing is important if you want to get them when they are still warm. Your mouth first encounters a slight crunch when you first sink your teeth into the donut. That initial crunch is then followed by warm and soft cake that melts in your mouth. It is cake donut perfection. The bismarks and raised glazed are also very good but I'm had similarly enjoyable donuts of those styles elsewhere. But if someone can tell me a place where the cake donuts are better than these I would sure like to know.

“Great for Grand Marais”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

They are donuts. Get there early and buy a few extra. I never stop at just one or two. Maybe three or four. Goes great with coffee or juice. We also stop and pick up a number for the next year. You can come back with it and receive a free donut. Also look at the board hanging, they track where people are from who buy donuts. Cost is $7.50 a dozen.

“Always Worth the Trip!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We stopped at World's Best Donuts twice during our recent stay. The earlier you go
the shorter the line. The first day we went around 10:30 and the line was far outside of the door. The 2nd day we arrived at 9:00 and were able to get right in the door. Great selection and quality donuts.
