I have no self control when it comes to this place. Each visit to downtown Wilmington must include at least one trip to Wake N Bake. We stopped by last night after dinner (around 19h45), but they were closed. We know they close when they...More

At the recommendation of a family member, I stopped in to see if the donuts could live up to their reputation. Def, yes! I had 3 of the 4 best sellers. Yummy takes on a whole new meaning! These are no ordinary donuts!

Arrived on a Thursday at 8pm to find out they were closed when the sign said they were open until 9. Very disappointed and no actual review to give.
