Wordless Wednesday Link Up: Britt's Donuts in Carolina Beach North Carolina


By on 6/02/2015 06:10:00 AM

During a trip to Carolina Beach in North Carolina, we were told that we simply had to have a donut from Britt's Donuts on the Boardwalk. Britt's has been open for decades--serving their well known donuts to locals and tourists alike. I thought I would share a couple of photos from Britt's Donuts as this week's Wordless Wednesday Link Up!





Britt's Donuts on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk

 Britt's is open only during the busy, beach season.  We visited just days after Britt's opened for the 2015 season--and were met with at least an hour wait both weekend days!  With those lines, we knew that these donuts had to be worth the wait!  We snapped this photo early on a weekday-- shortly after Britt's opened for the day.  The stools inside were already filling up!

The Britt's Glazed Donut
Why aren't we showing a huge donut case with 80 varieties of donuts? Because Britt's serves one donut: a warm, homemade glazed donut. Cold milk and hot coffee are served in styrofoam cups for carrying--and Britt's only accepts cash for payment.  

What did we think of Britt's Donuts? This was probably the best glazed donut I've ever eaten. Would I stand in line for over an hour for one? Yes--I think I would! If you make it to Carolina Beach--you really do need to have a donut from Britt's. I think the appeal for us was that the donuts were warm and, since the shop is so extremely busy, extremely fresh from the fryer!

If you go to Britt's Donuts in Carolina Beach...  
Expect a line. In fact, if you see a massive line on the boardwalk--it is probably heading to Britt's! Have cash. They only accept cash--no credit cards! You don't want to stand in line for an hour or more only to find that you can't buy a donut!  
Buy more than one donut. You will want another--and you won't want to stand in line again!  
Britt's is only open seasonally. We were lucky enough that our off-season travels were close enough to the season that they had already opened!

Okay...as always...my Wordless Wednesday began with good intentions...but, I can never keep my mouth shut!  It's not as wordless as I had planned (again this week)--but, I'll try to do better next week!

  11. Never heard of Britt's. That donut looks mighty yummy. You know it's got to be good if people are willing to wait in line for it.

  14. I kid you not every time we go anywhere, the first thing DH looks for are donut shoppes. If we ever go to Carolina Beach, then I know DH will wanna check them out. It's really, really hard to beat Krispy Kreme hot-glazed donuts, but I'm open to giving them a try on your recommendation. However, I don't know if I am patient enough to stand in line for an hour for them, though. That's the only draw back to checking Britt's Donuts out AND they only take cash. That's something we carry very little on us anymore. Oh well...have a great #WW
