Place has been there for decades. Check hours of operation. Last time I was there they were closed on Tuesday. I don't care about donuts, but if you do this place is great. Right across the street from East Bay Suites.

We were told to stop by here and it certainly did not disappoint. It was a fun breakfast treat. It gets busy early though so make sure to get there right away.

Great treats!!! We were there the last day of the season which added to the fun. The assortment is always amazing and everything we have ever had is good. We enjoy the tradition of this place and always stop. Our mugs we brought home some years ago remind us of the mouth watering donuts!

When in Grand Marais visit the World's Best Donuts. Great place to have a cup a java and a donut. This place is very busy and you might have to wait. I would not say these are the world's best donuts, but they are very good. They have a big celection of donuts.

Memorable stop that is well named! I don't usually waste calories on doughnuts but after sharing a bite from the kids I had to have one myself. Fresh out of the drier and delicious ! A must stop place. Don't worry, you'll work off the treat on the hiking trail! Locates a short distance from the pier where you can... More

Be prepared to wait in line for these donuts! They are that good. Grab a coffee at a nearby coffee shop and then go to the breakwater to watch the sunrise.

Had to stop to try them out. One of the best donuts I've ever had. My whole family said the same thing. Worth the wait as there is usually a long line.
