What a great find. The cinnamon bread is fantastic and the donuts are amazing. All this with a spectacular atmosphere.

Went in to donut friar expecting the very best, but only average tasting glazed donuts. The frosted cake donuts looked very presentable, but after one bite from daughter she spit it out saying they use whip cream for icing. Above average pricing for donuts.

I adore Gatlinburg as a whole, but by far my favorite thing to do is grab a delicious donut (SOOOO much better than those chains) and a great cup of coffee and sit out by the fountain on a cool Tennessee morning. Doesn't get any better than that!

This has to be mine and my family's favorite stops in town! As my youngest daughter has always said "if you didn't go to The Donut Friar then you didn't go to Gatlinburg"! A wonderful place for your morning coffee or espresso and delicious pastrys. Also a great place to rest with the sounds of the running water from the beautiful fountain just steps from the door and near the cafe tables on the outside by the door where you can rest and re energize from your day or night of shopping and exploring. I always bring a couple dozen different varieties of the donuts home with me after a visit to the Smokies.
