“The tastiest, lightest donuts by far.”
Reviewed 23 September 2010

This place beats out all chain donut shops and even the local bakeries in the Linthicum, Glen Burnie, Severn area. The donuts are as light as air, not overly sweet and the prices are better than the various chains and some of the local bakeries. You can buy a dozen of the glazed donuts holes for only a $1.00. If you buy 3 doz donuts, you get a doz of the holes free. I tend to pick them up real early for work so I will call the day before to tell them what I want and it is ready when I get in there in the morning. He opens early, about 5:00 AM and closes around 11:30 AM. They are a bit out of my way but more than worth the trip. Try it, you'll like it.

“Amazing doughnuts”
Reviewed 18 February 2008

A coworker suggested I try this little doughnut shop on the corner of Rt. 170 (Telegraph Rd) and Rt 174 in Severn, MD. Carlson's is hands down the best doughnuts I've ever had. Much better than any of the chain doughnuts that can be found just about anywhere. The proprietor is a Thai gentleman that is always very friendly, and quite inviting. They're only open in the mornings, closed on Mondays, and you should plan on getting there plenty early, because they sell out quickly with the normal work commuters stopping in.
