Went here craving the good ole donuts you'd get on vacation...big, airy and full of flavor. We were so disappointed. These donuts were greasy, small and pretty flavorless, tried to eat a couple and threw the rest out. Reading all the reviews really makes me wonder did we hit it on a bad day? Even a good donut place on... More

These are the best donuts on the Connecticut shoreline by far. No one even comes close. They have the great standard flavors and have a selection of handcrafted additional flavors when the bext ingredients are available. Try to get some after 10am on a Summer weekend and you will be out of luck

The doughnuts are just delicious. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Soooooo good!! Get a dozen mixed and try them all. You won't be disappointed.

Get there early and pick any of the donuts that just came out of the cooker. They are fantastic! My favorite is the chocolate donut. The egg sandwiches are also a great deal and so good.

Beach doughnut has the absolute best in doughnuts on to shoreline. I don't go often, because I couldn't help myself from not enjoying them. Fresh made on premium and good varieties. Always a hit.

One of the Best Donut shops anywhere. I really like the sour creme donut. I can see why this place is on Gruhub's 50 best donut shops in America list.

Places like this are getting harder and harder to find. The BEST DONUTS!! Forget everyone else, Beach Donuts are the best donuts you can buy. Everything is of the highest quality. Made in the shop fresh everyday. Fresh brewed coffee all day. They even freeze coffee into ice cubes for the iced coffee, so your iced coffee is not watered... More

Stopped to get donuts on a visit to the shore. Always worth the drive. Favorite are the lemon sticks---tart and yummy not that sugary gel. The chocolate donuts are super chocolatey and addictive. My husband always gets a danish or cinnamon roll for the ride. A must try. 😁
