With so many things changing in town, we were so pleased to find the donut friar is still here back in the only quiet shopping area in town. Grab some and eat them by the fountain. Yum.

We always go here when we go to Gatlinburg. I take containers to bring food home in. Never disappointed.

Only 2 of the donuts we got were actually fresh. The cinnamon roll and cheese danish we got were dry and hard. The other 3 donuts were just so-so.
