We got there when they first opened on a Friday afternoon and there was already a line. It took about 15 minutes(a short wait), but even waiting longer would be worth it. The doughnuts melt in your mouth and I ate a half dozen in...More

To truly experience Carolina Beach and Boardwalk - stand in line for a dozen of these donuts- it's part of the experience- $8.75 a dozen and well worth the time and money - a locals favorite too

Ranked #2 nationally. They are made fresh. These are lighter/fluffier donuts than Dunkin Donuts. Britts are more in line with Krispy Kreme. They are best hot but are still quite good cold.

Booked my hotel room based on location of Britt's donuts! Warm, tasty, donuts that you can not just buy one- trust me and get at least a half dozen!

The donuts are out of this world but I had the unfortunate experience of watching a person walk away sadly because they didn't have cash! People are friendly and if you have time sit at the counter.

I do not know what kind of oil they use to fry the donuts. I would suggest you call ahead and ask.
Is it okay to enter in a bikini or a swimsuit or does one have to be dressed in street clothes?

You can go right from the beach, you stand in line outside, it's take out only
I thought Britt's was closed for the winter but I am seeing recent reviews. Will it be open between Christmas & New Year's?

My daughter is a UNCW student and I checked with her and she said that it is currently closed. If u are ever down there when it's opened its definitely worth trying:)
