Best time to go is when the hot now sign is lit and then highly recommend the original. They melt in your mouth. Good coffee as well. Fun for kids to watch the donuts being made and going through the curtain of glaze.
We visited on a Thursday night around 9pm. The kids and adults loved watching the production of hot, fresh doughnuts from start to finish. The pastrStaff were very friendly and helpful. It was very busy the evening we went, but the booths and counter space were kept immaculately clean. We decided it's a new family tradition whenever we visit Raleigh!
Dropped off the daughter around the corner for the SAT so we took advantage of the hot donuts sign. What a great way to start a Saturday. Watching the donuts be made is icing on the cake. It's hard to beat a hot Krispy Kreme fresh off the line. Service was excellent and employees were extremely pleasant.

As in you need the hat, you need to watch the boiling donuts and this is a Raleigh right of passage place for sure. Plus you can watch people barf in the parking lot during the fundraiser race. Hey, can't get enough donuts!

Stopped here to get my mom some donuts and coffee and it was an amazing experience. She enjoyed the coffee and restaurant was clean and the staff were friendly. The doughnuts were really good.
