Go on inside and get a coffee while you wait for your bag of donuts. No need to stand in that line outside. They are well worth it!

By far the best donuts around! Better than Krispy Kreme. We travel 4 hours just for Britts! Only open May-September and stays lined up but definitely worth the wait. Only down fall is their not open year round.

Britt's Donuts has been on the Boardwalk for years; since the 1930s if my recall is correct. Only open in summer season, they sell glazed donuts, coffee & milk. Expect to stand in lline to get these treats. Just to smell these cooking is wonderful....More

They serve the most delicious glazed donuts! The donuts are light and sweet. Most of the time we buy two dozen. Our family of five usually finishes the first dozen on the way to the car.

The best, fresh homemade donuts. Served warm and perfect, no fancy toppings needed. Long line and small space but definitely worth a visit or three.

Did not think it possible...but Britt's is just that little bit (crispier, taste) above a KK donut. A not to miss when you need donut fix, or have guests.

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!

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