Guide Review - Britt's Donuts - Carolina Beach, North Carolina

Britt's Donuts is a small Carolina Beach doughnut shop conveniently located on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. If you have visited Carolina Beach sometime during the past 70 or so years, chances are you have been to or at least heard about Britt's Donuts, which has been in operation since 1939.

A long time favorite of Carolina Beach locals and regular visitors, Britt's Donuts received national recognition in a 2008 MSN.com article by Bret Statka, which focused on independent, small-town doughnut shops. Having eaten more of these delicious doughnuts than I would like to admit, I can say that I wholeheartedly agree that Britt's Donuts deserves to be on the list.

Britt's Donuts only makes raised glazed doughnuts. They are freshly baked, light and airy in the center and have a somewhat dark glaze that has just the right amount of crispness.

If you are planning a visit to Carolina Beach, I suggest going to Britt's Donuts sometime early during your stay because you may find yourself wanting to return for more...again and again.

Britt's are the Best!!!!!!!, Member dustysmamacakes

I remember coming to Carolina Beach with my parents when I was a child. And the one thing I remember most, even back in its ""hey day"", was as soon as you hit the Boardwalk was the wonderful smell of Britt's Donuts. The first time my husband and I vacationed there I asked him to walk down to pick us up a dozen donuts. Found out later that he bought 2 dozen, he ate one doz. on the way back to the room. When friends visit Carolina Beach I always ask them to go to Britt's, get a donut and face east and proclaim that one is for Linda. I believe the salt air truly has something to do with that wonderful taste. God Bless America and Britt's Donuts!
