Back Door Donuts-Oak Bluffs

Just had the best donuts ever at Back Door Donuts. For years I've missed the old Humphreys and never thought I would find a replacement, but this blows everything else away. Expect a line snaking through the parking lot opposite Jimmy Seas, but it moves quickly. My only mistake was not ordering more.

    1. Try the bear claw :)

      Back Door Donuts is a family tradition and we can't wait to partake in this year's endless wait for hot donuts!

      1. Last year was our first year trying this place and we loved it! We probably went 3 nights in a row, on the last night to take back home on the ferry the next morning! We did encounter quite a few skunks as we walked the streets to our B&B! Is this common in town?

          Yes, skunks are a big problem in town.

          Back Door Donuts has become a huge tradition in OB for a lot of visitors. They have a good thing going on. Apple fritters are the most popular. It's a fun experience for a lot of people.
