This place has great donuts and an awesome cheese Danish. The selection was not huge but they tasted great. They no longer accept credit cards, cash only.

We always stop for a donut (or 2,5,12!) when we are in Gatlinburg. We usually stay in a cabin outside of town, so we always get them later in the day. Always delicious. This trip we stayed in town and I walked down to the...More
