Family was in from out of town and had never been to Britts. They ate one dozen right away and took the rest home for later. Wanted to know why I had not taken them before. Nuff said. Awesome

I had heard so much about Britt's Donut Shop and had to experience it for myself. This was the last day of their season, so the line was long. The staff was efficient and friendly, moving the line along at a good pace. The donuts were fresh, hot out of the fryer...I'll give them that. However, I found the donuts... More

They have been their thing the same way the whole time. This is a family owned shop and they make their donuts on sight like they have for years. Just jump in line and enjoy the smell as you get closer. The only bad thing is that they do not hold well to take home.

Closest thing you will find to a Krispy Kreme donut! But with its own distinct taste! Only place that comes close by far. Hot and ready all the time. White bag delights. Guarantee that you cant just eat one.....or two. They are awesome! We visit here every time we are in the area.

We went there right before Britt's closes at the end of the season. At first we just bought three doughnuts. But they were soooo good that we went back later in the day and bought a dozen more! I guess it's lucky we don't live closer because we would not be able to stop eating them.

So good nice and hot! It is a non-chain local business. Just a few dollars for a taste of heaven. Worth the extra calories.

My family used to visit Britt's every time we went to the beach. When I was in the area this weekend, I knew I had to go back. Did not disappoint!!! Just as good today as they were all those years ago!

Heard a lot about the donut shop and history and Britts did not disappoint. Simple, fresh, tasty and warm served in a bag.. Light, soft and glazed to perfection. Will be a regular stop every trip to Wilmington and Carolina Beach!

I have been going to Britt's since 1998 and they are always amazing. Best donuts I have ever tasted.

While not bad, they are a part of history so something to try at least once. However they don't beat a fresh hot out of the oven Krispy Kream.
