I walked in with a shroud of doubt but left realizing they nailed it! Even my wife who typically doesn't like donuts, requested them each morning. The key is to get their early and hungry.

Perfect place in a perfect place. Grand Marais is such an awesome laid back community and World's Best Donuts are just the thing to sit back and indulge. Warning if you have diabetes just stay away or carry a gallon of insulin. Like with pistachios ya cant eat just one. Haven't been to Grand Marais without stopping by.

Place has been there for decades. Check hours of operation. Last time I was there they were closed on Tuesday. I don't care about donuts, but if you do this place is great. Right across the street from East Bay Suites.

We were told to stop by here and it certainly did not disappoint. It was a fun breakfast treat. It gets busy early though so make sure to get there right away.

Great treats!!! We were there the last day of the season which added to the fun. The assortment is always amazing and everything we have ever had is good. We enjoy the tradition of this place and always stop. Our mugs we brought home some years ago remind us of the mouth watering donuts!

When in Grand Marais visit the World's Best Donuts. Great place to have a cup a java and a donut. This place is very busy and you might have to wait. I would not say these are the world's best donuts, but they are very good. They have a big celection of donuts.

This DONUT SHOP is another must be an we were there done that place to visit when in the Grand Marais area. Not being a real donut eater I can only tell you what people say about how great the donuts are. Though it is rather small place in size they service a lot of people in a very short... More

Memorable stop that is well named! I don't usually waste calories on doughnuts but after sharing a bite from the kids I had to have one myself. Fresh out of the drier and delicious ! A must stop place. Don't worry, you'll work off the treat on the hiking trail! Locates a short distance from the pier where you can... More

Be prepared to wait in line for these donuts! They are that good. Grab a coffee at a nearby coffee shop and then go to the breakwater to watch the sunrise.
