The donuts here are great. A must do when in Gatlinburg. I love walking in here just for the smell. Cream filled are my favorite.

This place is awesome, we have gone to Gatlinburg for at least 30 years and only just stopped in here about 3 yrs ago. I have no idea why we never stopped before, they have wonderful donuts. I love the cake with chocolate frosting and my husband loves the pillow puffs, they are light flaky pastry with cream in the middle. I have to try the cinnamon bread next time. Yummy place

It doesn't take long for the smell of this bakery to hit you once you walk into The Village. I always try to make it in here every time we visit Gatlinburg. They may not have a wide variety of donuts but trust me, with this place it's all about quality and not quantity. On 2 visits here I had an eclair and a chocolate cruller and I'm not even a big fan of crullers but I'd buy another from here. My wife is a sucker for the cinnamon bread and its equally great. Look no further for the best donuts in the Smokies. They're right here.
