My girlfriend and I went here last year and thought it was just OK but gave it another try this year and I have to say it's consistently just OK. Both of us had coffee and a breakfast meal for about $25. The service is...More

I love Brown's Donuts. What I love is its simplicity. They're homemade with only 6 choices of flavors. But you don't need a place with 50 fancy styles of donuts when they are this good. Go early and expect a little wait or go in...More

At Browns you'll get the best freshly made donuts ever! The lines are long, but it's worth the wait to get donuts just out of the fryer and too hot too eat.

These donuts are awesome! The line can get quite long, but always worth the wait and of course a great ocean view while you wait. I have also had their sunrise sandwich on Kaiser with egg and pork roll, YUMMY. Don't miss this place!

The wait is long in the morning but it's totally worth it! The donuts come out hot and melty and they are delicious. Definitely try them!

So much fun to eat at, fast service even though always busy, a great location to walk to, and the best hot donuts on the boardwalk!

Can't say that I've ever had a better doughnut in my life. I would travel back just for them. Freshly made and hot out of the machine is how it's done. Crispy and soft. Mmmm....

If you have the patience to wait in the line for their donuts you will not be disappointed. These donuts come off the conveyer belt steaming hot and are immediately dipped in your favorite toppings. The weight of the box alone is astonishing. If you...More

Brown's is not "open all day". They are a breakfast venue. I suggest, you stop by via bike or while walking the north end of the boardwalk in the early morning. Most likely, there is a lineup at the donut window. You can ask... More
