Had my first Brown's donut after coming to Ocean City for the past 12 years and they're pretty good. I had a little bit of each variety they make. The best thing they have going for them is their texture. The flavor is good, but...More

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....

Our "always" end of the season breakfasts are spent most often at Brown's. The wait staff is consistently congenial, our food arrives hot and coffee is generously refilled and of course, we opt for donuts "to go" before we leave. By the way, eggs are...More
