OK. Maybe there isn't a run-of-the-mill version, but this one is GREAT!!! The Thai food was very good (very fresh ingredients) and reasonably priced. The Donuts were amazing. The coconut donut was the best donut I've ever had. Period. Owners were very friendly as well....More

Being from the islands where people really like ‘plenty ono for the $$, ‘ -sight unseen, I can confirm this is a great family-run establishment. I didn’t even know about the donuts until I started this review. After a long day in DC our son...More

Carlson's doughnuts are simply the best doughnuts in town. No more needs to be said. Worth the effort to drive there. You cannot eat just one.

Although I was confused the first time I walked into Carlson's for thai food and smelled donuts, the place quickly won me over. If you want a really good donut, look no further--this is the place. And the thai food is good, too.

My office keeps asking me to bring in these donuts ever since the first time I brought them. So soft. So good. Love them all. ALL!!

Best doughnuts in town, by far. No need for trendy things. The line might be long, but they are worth it, and they might run out so get there early.

Not a huge selection like some of the new donut places popping up. Doesn't matter!!! They have the classics and they make them to perfection! We take our donuts seriously and this place is always on our To Do List when we are in Annapolis!!!

Bottom line: the best donuts around. I'm not a fan of those trendy places that serve hot and topped doughnuts. These are great raiser donuts served in many varieties. The old Thai ladies are rude but that's part of the charm of this place.

This is the place for light raised donuts. Been coming here for years. Not a large selection but what they have covers various types. I preferred sugar twists which are had to find.............

I was recommend to Carlsons by a local resident when I was visiting Annapolis for work from the UK.. Quite possibly the BEST Donuts I have ever tasted, super light and fluffy not like the stodgy dough we get back home! I ended up taking...More
