Every time we visit Gatlinburg we must go to the Donut Friar. The donuts are fresh and delicious. The eclairs are huge and wonderful and the coffee is great as well. I love walking past everyone waiting for pancakes at that other joint to go get something it is hard to find in most places, a real, home made donut shop! One little tip, bring cash because it is all they take. There is an ATM but I am not sure what fees would apply. Just bring some money and get in there, the donuts are fabulous! Highly recommended.
