I had powdered, my husband had cinnamon sugar

“They were awfully good!”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Was at Brown's just this morning. Split my order between cinnamon and vanilla donuts....they were great! There is a long line on weekends though......so the earlier the better.

“Love the donuts”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

I went to a different beach as a child, so I was out of my element the first time my husband took me to Ocean City. But as soon as we had breakfast at Brown's and I tasted the homemade cinnamon donuts, I was hooked. Make sure to buy your half dozen for the road at breakfast, because if you walk up the boardwalk first, they will be sold out by the time you get back! Although the donuts are the main selling point, I do have to add that they gave me perfect over easy eggs as well (not every restaurant is good at that . . .).

“Sorry - no on the donuts”
Reviewed 25 August 2011

We made the walk from the
Port of Call to Brown's and stood in line for 40 minutes for probably the worst donut I have ever had. Very greasy that killed any flavor.

“Awesome donuts”
Reviewed 20 August 2011

This place is a tradition for our family. Worth the wait. First time we ate inside as opposed to take out order. My husband and 11 year old opted for omlets which were very good and filling. Myself and my 8 year old stuck to the donuts. Love these cider donuts especially when warm and fresh. Highly recommend.
