Unless you just hate donuts (which would be crazy!) this place is a must stop for anyone in the area! The donuts are the best in the area and the home grown feel of the small shop just invites you in. Let this serve as a warning though... if you end up moving to the north side of town, plan... More

I always try to come to Carol Lee Donuts when I am in Blacksburg. They are small, delicious, perfect donuts that come in a variety of flavors and both yeast and cake varieties. We had chocolate frosted, raspberry filled, glazed, and blueberry cake donuts plus coffee. This is a takeout location and make sure to bring cash!

Never willingly miss some fresh donuts from carol lee. Always fresh, always fabulous. Had my first in 1986. The smell of the place alone is worth stoppping. Do not fail to stop if you are in town.

Service was great. The personnel were very friendly, cordial and answered all the questions I asked. Additionally, they provided information that I was not aware of - can call to make specific request for an item to be baked just for you

Picked up a dozen donuts for the office. They were gone in 5 minutes! The wide assortment of flavors was a hit!

...and possibly the entire solar system. They're light a fluffy and just the right about of sweetness, I'm drooling just thinking about them. The toasted coconut and maple are my favorites, but honestly they're all fantastic. Where's their Michelin star?

The best donuts in the galaxy! I use to get there at opening and take a few dozen to class. The White Delights are pure heaven, but need to cool first thing in the morning. The counter folks are marvelous and always friendly. In my opinion, this is a Blacksburg institution!

Don't miss the blueberry cake donut, but all of them are amazing. These fresh donuts can't be beat and are often requested by our out of town guests.

Carol Lee Donuts have become a staple of Wednesday mornings. I can't begin to say enough about how delicious theses fresh made daily doughnuts are! My personal favorite is glazed with coconut but you'll just have to stop in and try one (or two) for yourself. Keep in mind, they only take cash.

Thank Tim P
