This is always a favorite for our family. Wonderful. This trip we received a few more donuts than a dozen "just because there were a few small ones".

They only make one kind of donut, their glazed donut. But let me tell you, they are so ridiculously delicious! And, if they're hot, you can forget about stopping at one. They only accept cash payment, good price.

In Maryland, we measure glazed donuts against Krispy Kreme. I laughed when friends said Britt's were better. I'm not laughing any more. They only do one kind of donut, but they do it to absolute perfection! The best way I can describe it is to...More

Nothing compares to a Britt donut. Don't buy 6, get a dozen. They are natural, good for you, and you will always want more once they are gone.

Fresh hot donuts in the boardwalk were amazing. Hard to beat warm donuts. They were only $1.00 a piece and they only had yeast donuts. So glad we stopped in!

Amazing donuts and a fun experience! The only thing better than watching Americas second favorite donut being made is getting to eat it once it's done! Every donut is fresh and melts in your mouth. This place tops Krispy Kreme! However, they do only except...More

Watch your donuts be cooked before your eyes. When you get them, they're so hot you can hardly touch. And they're so delicious they melt in your mouth. Much better to eat while they're hot. Price is $8.75 per dozen.

I do not know what kind of oil they use to fry the donuts. I would suggest you call ahead and ask.
Is it okay to enter in a bikini or a swimsuit or does one have to be dressed in street clothes?

You can go right from the beach, you stand in line outside, it's take out only
I thought Britt's was closed for the winter but I am seeing recent reviews. Will it be open between Christmas & New Year's?

My daughter is a UNCW student and I checked with her and she said that it is currently closed. If u are ever down there when it's opened its definitely worth trying:)
