Best service I’ve experienced in Gatlinburg besides the distilleries....(they are mainly nice for your money I think) besides rob and stokey!! But this place has great donuts and it’s a pleasant store with pleasant people running it

If you are craving a donut, this is the place for you. I don't normally like donuts but this place makes the best donuts on the planet. If you go, try the Friar Special. It's worth it.

Enjoyed a visit to the Donut Friar located in the Village at Gatlinburg. Everything was delicious. Limited seating inside, but more available outside.

Located in the Village @ Gatlinburg, we stop in every single trip. Everything is delicious, including the coffee. You must have a donut or eclair with a cup of coffee. We usually sit @ some available seating outside the shop. Opens @ 5am!

A gatlinburg must visit. Incredible donuts and coffee. They accept cash only but there is an atm on site. Donuts are very inexpensive too.

Came here for a quick breakfast and was not disappointed. The donuts are amazing! It’s tucked away in the village, but it is a beautiful walk to get to here. Would recommend to a friend. Try the cinnamon donut!
