Early Bird Donuts Reviews

Finally tried this place this weekend and so enjoyed! A classic old-school donut shop (reminded me of Daylight Donuts in Raleigh). Went at 8:30 on a Saturday morning and there was a line but it moved very quickly. We got an assorted dozen donuts to take to family and all were a hit. I especially loved the customizing of fillings. Big fan of the Apple fritter – it’s enormous! My husband tried a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit and loved it. We always enjoy Monuts and Rise, but Early Bird has a bigger donut selection and slightly better prices – definitely getting added to the regular rotation.

P.S. for all the negative reviews about being sold out of donuts in the afternoon, have you never been to a bakery? Every donut shop or bakery I’ve been to in my entire life – including Rise and Monuts here in Durham – sells out of donuts (or pastries, bread, etc.). If you go an hour or two before close, there are going to be slim pickings. Everything is made fresh that morning and they INTEND to sell out before they close to ensure there’s no waste. Ridiculous to leave a bad review because you came to a bakery at the end of the day and expected a full selection.

Just can’t stop thinking about how lucky all of the people in the area are to have a hidden gem like Early Bird Donuts! It’s a unique concept, I think, where you get to select your donut and the filling. Everything is fresh, homemade and tastes divine! I just wish I hadn’t gone alone so I could have tried more flavor combinations. If I’m ever in this part of NC again, I’ll be sure to grab a dozen!

The donuts are absolutely delicious with lots of variety. I also got the breakfast croissant and it was just, well, too much (sloppy) and not really flavorful. But this could definitely be just a matter of taste/opinion because I saw another customer who seemed to be enjoying theirs very much!✌️ Overall… Go early and get those ridiculously delicious donuts!!

Was told these are the best donuts in the triangle. Didn’t disappoint in anyway. There was a longish line. Totally worth it.

Some of the best donuts I have ever had. A new weekend treat!

This was our first time coming here. It was easy to find and a little quiet spot. The gentleman who served us was very nice. They were sold out of everything except for the glazed donut holes by the time we got there after 12 noon.
We bought all of them. They do have an extensive menu and it is nice and clean inside. The donut holes are very good. I would highly recommend coming here. Next time, we are in the area we will stop by. I’m looking forward to trying their kolaches with sausage rolls.

To be honest these are the best donuts that I have ever had. They never scimp on the filling for them and they are always fresh and packed with flavor. They have great customer service and I would honestly recommend this place to anyone and everyone who lives in Durham.

This place is great! The donuts are fresh and filled to order. The name says it all. If you come too late in the afternoon; you’ll miss it. Donuts sell out early.

Some of the best donuts in Durham, less expensive than in most other places. For some of them, you can choose your filling. All favors are delicious, and all the colleagues that I fed with donuts on mornings agreed

Stephen Wood

Went there when they first opened thinking they had doughnuts. They only had 3 kinds so they weren’t sold out they just didn’t have anything. Drove 15 minutes home and the paper bag they put the doughnuts in was greasy and was not appealing. They claim to be the best in Durham, but Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme has a lot better selection and not full of grease. Worst experience and worst place to go if you want doughnuts. I highly recommend Monuts on 9th Street over this place. Doughnuts were stale crispy on bottom like made yesterday. Yes it was my first time trying this place and definitely my last.
