Great donuts. Friendly staff. Fun location. Only downside is seating. Not much room and no high chairs.

The donuts are delicious! A little pricey but great . Donuts cost about twice as much here as they do at home but they’re very good.

Fresh, handmade donuts. You can clearly taste the difference. Nice selection of coffee mugs to purchase as well.

Most delicious donuts ever. And I generally don't like donuts! My boyfriend made 2 trips to this place on our 3 day stay. Had to bring friends home some goodies

Diantha we are glad the Donut Friar made you change your mind about donuts, especially the Donut Friar donuts. We hope you visit us again next time you are in Gatlinburg. The cinnamon bread is a great choice to bring back to friends.

We had eclairs and frozen cappuccinos this time. Yes, we come here every time we visit Gatlinburg! The quaint, personal little shop, reminds me of a European bakery. Everything is great! Service is always kind. Even if you’ve already eaten breakfast - there’s always room...More

"Always room for a donut!" We love that advice. Thank you for making us a routine stop while you are in Gatlinburg. We love the atmosphere of The Village too. It makes the experience so much more enjoyable. We can't wait for your next visit...More

Bought some donuts one morning and was very satisfied with the product. Even though we bought cake donuts, they were still light and airy and very tasty - not your normal heavy cake donut that you get from other places.

This was delicious! After reading reviews we knew we had to give it a try. It is tucked away in the village in Gatlinburg. Both our doughnuts were amazing and reasonably priced.

Thank you megsw12 for giving the Donut Friar a try. The village is a unique shopping area which some people miss. Please come back soon and try more DONUTS.

This cafe is so old world, love it. The coffee was good just a little on the weak side for us. My husband had the Bavarian cream pastry and absolutely loved it. Great friendly service at 6AM.
