Here on this lovely island for 2 weeks. We have enjoyed doughnuts through the front door during the day but tonight headed into town to enjoy the back door experience and say we've done it!
Fabulous, fresh warm donuts - my kids had the Charlie version - pick your doughnut then add ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate sauce . AMAZING!

Thank Kristeen B

I heard the stories, how people line up at 9 o clock at night to eat these treats. I was in the neighborhood at about 3 pm and was surprised to find donuts on display. We bought 4 and went home. What I will say is, I hope these donuts were not from the night before. All were stale and all were thrown away. Do not buy except at night.

Dear Colearl, We're sorry you weren't satisfied with our donuts. We make donuts and apple fritters twice a day beginning at 6 am and again in the evening for Back Door Donuts. Every afternoon at 3 pm, we begin selling any remaining donuts and fritters FROM THE MORNING SHIFT at 50% off. There are no donuts from the night before. Any donuts that are not sold by closing time are donated or thrown out. At 3 pm or 4 pm the donuts are not as fresh as they were at 10 am, but they are not stale. Again, we're sorry they didn't meet your expectations.

There’s not much to the atmosphere but there is a fantastic choice of donuts and baked good. There are a couple tables for sitting and relaxing. The donuts have a great reputation. People order them by the dozen and come pick them up.

Apple fritters are a bit of a thing in my family and we never miss an opportunity to taste them. The sign limiting how many you could purchase without a special order was a good omen and the fritter was delicious.

They literally open the back door in the late evening while baking for the next day- warm apple fritters were mouthwatering, we could not get home to pair with ice cream as we ate the whole thing immediately.
