Britts Donuts on the Boardwalk of Carolina Beach North Carolina

The History of Britt’s Donuts: Britt’s Donuts is a true Carolina Beach icon. Founded by H. S. Britt in 1939, this humble donut shop has been a family-owned and operated business for over 80 years. While many things have changed over the years, one thing remains constant: the commitment to producing the finest, freshest donuts in the region.

The Classic Donut: At Britt’s, there’s only one type of donut on the menu, but it’s all you need. The classic donut is a masterpiece in simplicity. These warm, golden orbs of dough are fried to perfection and coated in a dusting of powdered sugar. They are so light and airy that they practically melt in your mouth. The recipe has remained unchanged for decades, and that’s precisely what keeps people coming back for more.

Part of the charm of Britt’s Donuts is its limited menu. You won’t find an array of flavors and toppings here. Instead, you get to savor the pure, unadulterated goodness of a classic donut done to perfection. They are so popular that they often sell out, so it’s wise to arrive early to secure your share.

What sets Britt’s apart is their commitment to freshness. Donuts are made right before your eyes, and they’re only sold when they’re hot and fresh out of the fryer. The experience of biting into a warm Britt’s Donut is truly unparalleled.
