Nothing better than a freshly made hot donut. These are not mainstream donuts. Their choices are cool ones like Key Lime Pie., carmel and sea salt, chocolate cherry, and a host of others. But you should eat them while their hot/warm. They dont taste as good the next day. I would lie if I said I only ate one. I... More

We had a great start to today. We had read about this place where you get to choose from glazes and toppings to make a doughnut the way you want it. When they hand you the box it is incredibly warm. They explained to us that every donut is made with yellow cake and a hole. So there are no... More

Not much more I can add that isn't in the other reviews. We are so in love with these donuts that we are actually looking into starting a franchise location near where we live. We go to Rehoboth every summer and go to get our donuts the very first day. Even 2 or 3 days old they are still fabulous... More

I think it is commonplace to come here as a beach tradition. Yes, a little expensive, Yes, a little bit of a wait, Yes, unhealthy. But the donuts taste good with fun options to pick from. I wouldn't eat here everyday but it's a fun vacation treat.

We saw the reviews for this place, so we knew we had to stop here to pick some up. We were in and out in under 5 minutes and that was on a Sat afternoon! Prices are 1.50 for one/7.00-7.50 for six & 13/dozen, but you get them hot and oh so good, sooo worth the price. The place is... More

On our way to Bethany Beach we always make a point to stop at the Fractured Prune...and it NEVER disappoints ! Wonderful, fattening, delicious donuts that's always worth the stop, especially in the morning.

Wasting your time for a donut? Really? Donuts make you fat! They are not healthy for you! Especially the ones there! Mine was just loaded and disgusting! Never ever ever going again!

We went to the Fractured Prune on the way home from Rehoboth after hearing how great the donuts were and I have to say it was a let down. The shop is incredibly small with not many places to sit and the line to get these "fabulous' donuts was so long. We waited 10 minutes just to order then another... More

Been to OC/Rehoboth a million times and never visited Fractured Prune. I'm not a big fan of doughnuts but this place changed my tune. Nothing like them anywhere. We had them for breakfast this morning and will stop there again before we leave tomorrow. Can't wait!
