It's not Gatlinburg unless we go to the Village and get donuts from the Donut Friar. This place, while small, has an ATM, and the most delicious pastries and donuts we've ever had. Even if you don't eat there, at least take a dozen home with you.

Very good donuts. They are crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. We tried the Friars special and the raspberry filled. Raspberry was very light, the Friars special is a donut that is sliced in half with a layer of cream filling in the middle, then iced on top with chocolate icing and a smiley face made out of cream filling. It was !oh so yummy! but very rich, I had to remove some of the cream filling to be able to finish it. We also got a loaf of the cinnamon bread, but haven't tried it yet. The donuts still tasted fresh the next day.

We stayed just around the corner at Jack Huff's and would pop in just before sunrise to get donuts and head fpr the Park. Nothing beats a fresh pastry and a cup of coffee while driving the Roaring Fork looking at bears!

We purchased several different donuts and pastries. Donuts were all really good, especially anything with the chocolate frosting. Really loved the cinnamon roll. Great area to walk around. Only problem was finding a place to park.

Donut Friar has the best pastries that I have ever had in my 41 years of walking this Earth. Absolutely amazing. I moved to Gatlinburg several months ago, and Donut Friar has been a pitstop for me on a regular basis.

Just go, buy, and eat... You will not be disappointed.
