Great tasting and awesome donuts. Love it. There is nothing like a good old donut especially when it is hot. This place has been around a long time and is evidence of the great quality and taste of their product.

It is very fresh and the staff is very attentive--primarily at the take out window. You can get everything here that would rival a Krispy Kreme which we don't have in Wilson.

I visited this restaurant with friends on my visit to the area. I had a cinnamon roll which was huge and had a good taste. The only negative is that they do charge for even a glass for water. Overall a good breakfast though.

Best donuts, cream puffs cream or custard filled fritters, etc..and my favorite is their honey buns as big as your head. You will not be disappointed, it's worth the trip. Fresh, delicious and reasonably priced sweet treats.
