You will have to wait in a long line but you will be so glad you did. Doughnuts are freshly cooked, are hot and crispy dripping with secret recipe glaze. Scrumptious.

Britts donuts is aCarolina beach fixture. It is a tradition that should not be missed. Even if you have to wait in line for a while which sometimes happens, the small nondescript cup of hot coffee and a glazed doughnut right out of the cooker is the wait.

The best hot glazed donuts you will ever eat. You can't just eat one. I have enjoyed Britt's donuts every summer for 40 years!

I probably can't say anything that hasn't already been said about Britt's. I had heard from many people that I needed to stop for a doughnut as they were so good! Well, they didn't disappoint! Think Krispie Kreame that has just been pulled from the fryer. These doughnuts are simple, sweet, crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle,... More

These doughnuts are amazing! They are delicious and are homemade. I've never ace tasted donuts quite like this because they are very original even though they only serve glazed doughnuts. The place is also in a good location because it's located in the boardwalk. Definitely come her ego try delicious donuts and to have fun!!!!

They only serve one thing and the line is hundreds long all the time. A Carolina Beach requirement when they're open. Bring cash or you'll have to visit the ATM across the boardwalk.

I don't like donuts but I'll fight beach traffic and wait a half hour in line for one of these. The counter is for eat in only and rarely backed up. The 50 person deep line is to buy to go. Treat yourself, sit at the counter and order a couple with a cup of cold milk. Try to let... More

Been to Britts twice during vacations and they are good. Always busy but line goes quickly and worth the wait. Nothing better than hot donuts!
