There is a reason this place has been voted best donuts in the nation! Folks, they have one donut which is glazed. If you’re seeking a glazed donut for breakfast or for a snack, these are fantastic! Very good price as well!

Britt's is a family business (since 1939) with donuts that are light and melt in your mouth mmmmm. The only downside is that they are only open during the tourist season. Definitely check out Britt's, it is worth the wait in line.

If you can't find this place near the boardwalk at Carolina Beach, look for a line or ask someone who is carrying a white greasy paper bag-- they will show you. This place is to Carolina Beach as Cafe du Monde is to New Orleans!...More

Local treasure. A must even for one (if you can eat only one). Hot fresh donuts. If there's a long line, return closer to lunch.

No. Only one kind of donut at Britt's. Glazed. And they taste like heaven and melt in your mouth. Definitely not gluten free
