Donut Friar

If you’ve ever been to the Smokies then there’s a great chance that you’ve already been to the Donut Friar and fallen in love with both their coffee and pastries. Located in the heart of The Village Shops, this little shop is one of the most visited local businesses in town. However, in the early hours of the morning it’s a quiet and quaint location for embracing the start of your day. A hot cup of their wonderful coffee goes perfect with everything from the Bavarian cream donuts to their delicious cinnamon twist. Once you’ve had a good dose of caffeine and sugar, head out on the trails for a beautiful hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!
