I have had many items at the Donut Friar. The cinnamon rolls and eclairs are a must. I highly recommend purchasing one of their delectables and sitting in the Village courtyard to people watch. You won't be disappointed!'

If you're in the area don't miss having some donuts here. They'll melt in your mouth. I had a chocolate glazed and a cinnamon twist and both were great.

Love their chocolate frosted crullers! The best ever! Only complaint was that I got up super early one morning and went down there for more, but the donuts weren't ready yet.

What can I say about the Donut Friar that hasn't already been said? Just walking in the place alone for the smell is worth the trip. They have this donut called a Bavarian Creme Pillow. My God! A heavenly creation in itself.

Another Gatlinburg staple. A never miss for us through 25 years of being here. The Village is a great spot to shop in the shade as well. Put this on your don't miss list. You will not be disappointed.
