A true gem within the Village in downtown Gatlinburg. Without a doubt, their donuts are the best I have ever had.

What I love about this spot is that it feels like a hidden gem, even though it's in such a busy area. The Village Shopping Center is tucked away off the main street, so you escape the madness of the strip on a busy day....More
