My husband and I went here on a Sunday morning for late breakfast. Though it was busy, ordering is quick. If you get only doughnuts, it is in and out. We both got biscuits, so you have to wait while it is prepared. The chicken...More

This place is for breakfast or a quick bite early in the day. Went around noon and the options were limited since it closes at 2pm. I did get a gigantic apple fritter and a creme brûlée donut that were amazing!

Our 10 yr old son was injured at camp and we live 4 hours away. We raced down to Duke Hospital and had a terrible evening. Ended up back at ER in the morning. All my son wanted was donuts. So with him all doped...More
