Great options. HUGE donuts.. they can even make a Donut cake. I liked how the fill their donuts to order. We even got to meet a legendary Blue Devil basketball coach, who popped in for a morning snack.

Have been here before early in the morning and it was fine, nothing super special. But came an hour and a half before they closed on a Saturday (at 12:30), and they were sold out of everything. Pretty disappointing. They should change their hours if they’re not gonna have anything to sell that far in advance of closing.

We went in on a whim just to check it out but came out with a dozen. Don't regret it. The donuts are awesome and we'll priced.

First time to check it out on Sunday. Not a big selection at 9am. I dont know whether we were late or if that is how it is. Doughnuts were all good and mostly fresh by the time we got home. Will try again.

Early Bird's yeast donuts are soft and pillowy, but have enough resistance to be satisfying. They're also delightfully large -- check out the dozen in my photo! They also have a surprising number of fillings available -- try the cherry filling. They do sell out of donuts as the morning progresses, though. The holy grail when they're in season is a donut that's filled with whipped cream cheese frosting and strawberries. Why you should listen to me: I am a donut fiend. I've had donuts from every single shop in the Triangle, from Carolina Glazed, Monuts, Rise, Krispy Kreme, Duck, Dunkin', you name it. I eat donuts in other big cities when I travel, too. Early Bird is my favorite. I am so happy they're here in Durham!
