It's been awhile since I visited here. I ordered a dozen of the glazed red velvet donut holes. Each one was a nice mouthful, tasted fresh and sweetened perfectly.

Simple and easy to buy donuts from. I go in to pick up donuts for work and they do spectacular boxes of variety donuts, not just the same iced donuts with different sprinkles. Cinnamon rolls, twists, plain glazed and crullers are all excellent. They get you in and out of the store as quickly as possible, something you really need on a busy workday.

Amazing donuts! I'd definitely recommend them as a local chain and they have great prices, friendly service and fantastic donuts.

Wow!!!!! Amazing donuts. The best I have had. I don't even really like donuts but this place will change your mind. Great food, fresh tasting and I love the cream filling machine. Will be back the next time we are in town.

I usually do not eat donuts, but Carolina Glazed Donuts is an exception. I love the smell of freshly baked donuts in the mornings when I stop in to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings. There are a few tables on the sides for seating and the morning crowd is their rush hour with people ordering boxes of goodies to take back to the office. The menu includes the classic donuts (glaze, twist, cream filled, bear claw, apple fritter, butterfly, jelly filled, eclair, old fashioned donut holes, and red velvet donut holes). Here’s the thrill: you can get Carolina Glazed donuts cream filling in a regular glazed or chocolate covered donuts. The filling flavors includes your choice of: •Strawberry •White cream •Custard •Lemon •Blueberry •Raspberry I normally get the white cream or the custard cream fillings. The fillings are not too sweet, but it enhances the donuts to ten times tastier! Basic donuts are around $0.89 each, or jelly filled for $1.29 each. These aren’t fancy donuts but they are fresh and tasty. They’re known for their Apple Fritters. I come by every so often the employees remembers my order, now that is great customer service! Carolina Glazed Donuts is my favorite donut shop stop, conveniently located in the Research Triangle Park.

Best old-fashioned cake donuts in the Triangle! Crunchy on the edges, moist inside, and just sweet enough. They have a wide array of classic donuts, from glazed to cake to filled. If you choose filled, you get to pick the flavor and they fill it on demand. Their donuts are all fried fresh that day and are a touch larger than the various donut chains in the area. Service is quick and friendly, and they often will toss in a few donut holes on top for free. Good value for what you get, too. This is the place to go for a dozen (or two) for your office, or take them to a party and be a hero.

This is my favorite place to go for mixed dozens. The dough tastes so light and sweet, and they toss in a few donut holes which is a nice little bonus for the office.

Great, very fresh donuts! Their pine cone is unique and fun - their cake donuts are a great texture! Overall, would highly recommend!

Always the best donuts for taste and selection! You can't go wrong when they put the flavor in when you order, so you can mix them up when you get them.

Amazing donuts and freshly made each day. Many people stop off and grab a couple of dozen for the office on the way into work.

Excellent donut selection with ample glaze coverage and filling volume! Each donut is filled to order with your choice of: fruit, chocolate, or créme (I highly recommend the Bavarian)! Without a doubt, I will be back again for more! Bring a bit of cash though: no cards are accepted for transactions less than $5.

The Doughnuts here are amazing!! I drove a whole hour to get here and it was well worth it. The customer service is always good, and the restaurant is so clean. I wish I could give them 10 more stars.

My go-to donut place. Loved the option and they fill your donuts to order which is the best.

The donuts here are fresh and delicious. Go before 10am though because they run out. Lots of choices and really sweet, tasty options. The prices are good so no reason not to pick up a dozen on your way to work in RTP.

They have really good donuts. However, if you don't get in here by 9:00 a.m. you might as well forget about it. They only make one batch of donuts for the entire day and it sells out pretty quick. After about 9:00 a.m. ish you have slim pickings. They won't make any more until tomorrow. If you check out the Duck donut place they'll make them as you order them for about the same price.

Excellent value for the price. Made fresh daily. The chocolate donut holes are addictive!

One of the best places to get made from scratch donuts in the area, hands down. They just make donuts (yeast and cake varieties) and they do it really well. Everything is made and fried on-site (you can smell it in the air as you walk into the place), and plenty of both variety and availability. I'm a big fan of the apple fritter (essentially a deep fried apple pie donut) as well as their yeast donuts. Highly recommended.

Awesome! Came in the day before my sons birthday party to order donuts locally for the party. They were fantastic! Customer service was great! We ordered a couple dozen donuts to pick up the next day and they were perfect and done on time. I definitely recommend Carolina Glazed Donuts especially if you need to feed a party at short notice!

Best Boston Cream I've had in a long time. This place is spotless and the restroom is clean too. 👍👍🍩

One of the best, if not THE best in the area. And one of the only that you can get a decent apple fritter! And probably the only one open when you really want an after-dinner donut, for those of us that do that :)

These are by far the best glazed yeast doughnuts in the Triangle. They are worth the drive. My personal favorites: the apple fritter (big as my hand), the maple eclair with white cream, and the blueberry cake doughnut. The waitstaff is always pleasant, too. They do a great job. Note that for card transactions, they do require a minimum $5 purchase, which is easy to do by ordering 6 doughnuts (or so, depending which type you prefer).

Best donuts ever! I recommend the blueberry cake donuts..... In my opinion, these are better than Krispy Kreme....

Exceptional donuts, and I love that they are a small business! You must try the cream cheese frosting in a filled donut--absolutely delicious! I love not only the variety of donut options but also the variety of filling options. It allows for a lot of customization based on your preferences. Staff is also very friendly and helpful. Get there early for the best selection though. This place is already becoming a favorite with us.

This was a real unexpected treat. I was feeling some cabin fever from being stuck inside with the CoVid lock down, so I jumped in the car on a Sunday morning and started off on an unknown drive. I ended up far from home and in bed of some sweat sustenance. I saw Carolina Glazed Donuts and pulled in. I received instant service. The young man behind the counter knew all the different items in the display case. I got a dozen very delicious donuts, some filled, some plain. They were all priced well. Overall, it was a very nice experience. I'd go back and buy their products anytime.

Awesome donuts for a great value, you can add filling to any donut! Please note Covid hours are till 5pm or earlier so call before you make the same mistake thinking it closes around 7pm. Best cream filled yeast donuts anywhere!!

The best dang place to have donuts! Incredible! The Boston creme, jelly filled, eclair and the apple fritter are my staple. Oh! The apple fritter is soooo good! Make sure you go early though, they sell out of the fritters.

Best donuts evahr! These are seriously some good donuts -- well risen, perfectly cooked, beautifully iced and filled, and absolutely delicious. I'm getting all worked up thinking about them that I might even get some in the morning...

The best donut shop around. These are true west coAst style donuts. So fluffy and not over glazed but with a slight chewy texture. I love love love them.

The best yeast donut and chocolate eclair i have ever eaten and very fresh. I visited the store around 6.15am It just melts and perfect amount of sweetness. Much better than the fancy donuts I ate in west coast, Colarado and Ny. The coffee was nice. Best customer service, genuinely polite . Will recommend this place to my friends.

6 out of 5 stars. Perfectly proofed pillows of fried perfection! Good thing I was only passing through or else I'd stop here every darn day. Fresh! And the glazes were smooth and tasted light and fresh, not gritty or manufactured. Can't recommend enough! Stop here in the AM for the start of a great day.

Discovered this place this weekend. Been looking for a good donut shop so we don't have to settle for Dunkin or grocery store pre packaged or use a shared bakery area where you pull out your own. We were having friends over and got a good variety to share. These donuts are incredible, fresh, good size and just delicious! Especially the apple fritter, big and so good, it left me wanting more, could have eaten another if not more. Yum! We have found our donut shop and looking forward to the next trip. Highly recommended!!

The donut shop I've been looking for! I've tried almost all the triangle spots and Carolina Glazed takes the cake (and old fashioned, and raised)! Go here if you like traditional well priced donuts. I'm not a fan of the other places with their $4 specialty donuts. This place makes fantastic donuts. I have found my donut shop. End of story.
