I am not a big donut fan. I will choose almost anything else over a donut for breakfast, but not in Gatlinburg! I feel like I am missing out if I eat breakfast anywhere but the Donut Friar while in Gatlinburg. I always get the Éclair which has the BEST custard filling I've ever eaten. On our trip this last weekend, my husband tried a cinnamon roll and said it was also very good.
The Donut Friar has been a part of the Village Shops for as long as I can remember and the smell of donuts in the mountain air when you walk past is unlike any other. You have to try these donuts!
