Back Door Donuts have the most delicious Apple Fritters. They are huge! Chunks of apple embedded in the fritter. It is worth the wait to get these piping hot from the oven.

Our family has had a summer cottage in Oak Bluffs since 1960. We know Back Door Donuts. Some of the best baked goods anywhere on earth and the absolute Gold Standard for apple fritters. The standing in line is fun and part of the experience....More

We did not want to miss the legendary apple fritters. They did not disappoint and are well-worth any wait and much deserving of the hype. No wonder there is a purchase limit on these treats.

Stopped in on the last day of the season before they closed for the winter. Everything was 1/2 off. There was a long line but it moved quickly. Was able to sit inside and have a cup of coffee and a delicious hot apple fritter....More

I heard the stories, how people line up at 9 o clock at night to eat these treats. I was in the neighborhood at about 3 pm and was surprised to find donuts on display. We bought 4 and went home. What I will say...More

Dear Colearl, We're sorry you weren't satisfied with our donuts. We make donuts and apple fritters twice a day beginning at 6 am and again in the evening for Back Door Donuts. Every afternoon at 3 pm, we begin selling any remaining donuts and fritters...More

There’s not much to the atmosphere but there is a fantastic choice of donuts and baked good. There are a couple tables for sitting and relaxing. The donuts have a great reputation. People order them by the dozen and come pick them up.

Apple fritters are a bit of a thing in my family and we never miss an opportunity to taste them. The sign limiting how many you could purchase without a special order was a good omen and the fritter was delicious.

They literally open the back door in the late evening while baking for the next day- warm apple fritters were mouthwatering, we could not get home to pair with ice cream as we ate the whole thing immediately.

We were in Oak Bluffs two nights and stopped here both nights. Highly recommend the apple fritters - they are oh so good!
