The donuts at Carlson's are the best around. Unfortunately everyone in Annapolis knows this and the donuts are gone far quickly. Get to Carlson's early so you can understand what everyone is talking about

Carlson's Donuts is a local icon for donuts! They are donuts that locals love to buy and eat. In the morning on the way to work, a couple of dozen Carlson's donuts will be a hit at the office. Once you have tried them you will never go back to one of those "Chain donut" stores! I personally love the... More

The best donuts. Ever. Reach out and touch the face of God kind of best donuts. Just bring cash, they're not into credit cards.

This is our preferred place to get donuts. We've been buying them here for years and expect to continue to do it for many more years.

GREAT glazed donuts. Also a big fan of the apple fritters and bavarian cremes. Make sure you get there early, as I've shown up at 9am on Sunday and they were sold out of my favorites.

"Never getting donuts from Dunkin' Donuts again" is what my husband said this morning. He had been driving past it for so long on his way to work and wanted to try it this morning. So glad we did! The donuts are very filling and taste great. Seems like it's a popular place to be, go early in the morning,... More

I have lived down the road from the place for years and never went in until this past Sunday morning. No frills storefront. My kids and I went to get a half dozen for breakfast. Great variety to choose from and all of them were delicious. Way better than Dunkin' Donuts. Prices were reasonable and the service was quick and... More

CASH ONLY. The location I visited was right across the street from an ATM so it worked out, but make sure you bring cash. Simple business model: be good at one thing, focus on that and the rest will come. For Carlson's this means doughnuts. Efficient staff and work space means not spending money on store front aesthetics and having... More

Great donuts for the office or to take on a trip and such. They only sell donuts and they close when they sell out for the day and they sell out fast. My favorite are the chocolate cake and my spouse loves the chocolate frosted. Your friends and coworkers will be crazy about them, the same as you will!

Great selection of delicious donuts. Quick professional service. The guys at work loved every one of the donuts. Get there early because once all the donuts are sold they are done for the day.
