You have to walk back into the shop area, but you can see the place from the sidewalk. It's worth stopping here. The donuts are fresh, soft, and delicious. The coffee was pretty good, though a big pricey.

Not many places around the strip open at 5 am. We were up early a couple of mornings this past week and needed good coffee. My husband walked over and picked up coffee and donuts twice. Good coffee and delicious donuts.

Walked down one morning. Purchased a mixed dozen of donuts. They were a hit when I returned to the condo room.

Our frequest visits to Gatlinburg are not complete without a stop at the Donut Friar. We can't get enough! Each person in my family has their favorite donut. Definitely a highlight on our trips!
