First this concerns the store on Randleman Road which I could not find on here! So this review is for that location only. This location is no where near the one I visit on Gate City Blvd. Went in last week and seemed I paid a lot more for what I got and then when I got home I had... More

In my opinion, Donut World does every other donut maker to shame! The maple bars are Delish. Always fresh, best customer service!! Definitely worth the stop!!

These donuts beat anywhere you have ever tried- I promise. They have plain, all kinds of flavors and icings, and an apple fritter that is to die for. Check your diet at the door and enjoy-- it won't hurt you to indulge once in awhile! You may think you know what you want before you go, but once you get... More

I stopped by mid morning to pick up donuts, but making a decision on which 12 donuts to get was hard. There are many choices and after sampling 12 different varieties, I can attest that they are all good. There was a line when I left, but don't despair, the line moves quickly, unless the person in front of you... More

The first is there location on battleground Ave. By far the best doughnuts around. I have tried the larger Krispy Kreme down the road and Doughnut world when fresh Is by far better. They melt in your mouth. I love this place. The one above on market does better than Krispy also but like I said so far the best... More

These donuts are fresh made each morning. I have seen them making donuts at 3am preparing for the morning ahead. The old fashion cake style donuts are crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. If you want a donut in Greensboro this is the place.

pass this donut shop daily and have neverrrrr stopped...honestly because the building looks skeptical. Its outdated. We live close, and I was in the mood for something sweet, so we "settled". To my surprise, this place is awesome. Clean, excellent selection of delicious donuts, reasonably priced, and super friendly staff. This is going to be our new sweet spot!

I use to go here to buy pastries 2 or 3 times each week. The price got to be too much. I go to Harris Teeter. I can buy pastries here for a third of the price. The last few times I visited Donut World, I was kept waiting and customers that came after me were waited on before me.... More
