Just happened to walk by Britt's and stopped in to watch the donut making. Decided to indulge (at $1.00 a piece, how could we pass this up?) we had a delicious, lightly glazed, warm and yummy dessert. They've been doing it right since 1939 and...More

The lines are sometimes long, but move fast and definitely worth the short wait. They only make glazed donuts. They are hot and fresh. You can see the donuts being made. They go from cooked, glazed to warm in your mouth. No sitting on the...More

These donuts were awesome! Better than Krispy Creme. Worth the wait in line or go mid-day for no line.

They truly are hot, delicious and melt in your mouth. The staff is friendly & fast. It's a good thing we didn't go until later in the week! I would visit again.

They open right around 8:30am and there will be a line. The doughnuts are soft and warm, some of the best I have had! I would recommend you get a dozen and share!

Britt's is a Carolina Beach/Wilmington tradition. My kids visited from Washington DC and decided Britt's were the best donuts they had ever had. Now they come back every year and every year Britt's is our first stop. Love those donuts.

No. Only one kind of donut at Britt's. Glazed. And they taste like heaven and melt in your mouth. Definitely not gluten free

I would walk inside the shop and ask the people at the counter before I waited in the long line. We didn't know this but if you go inside and sit at the bar you can order your donuts, you have to eat some there but then you... More

Not sure about that. I'm sure if you give them a call, they could help with that.
