Nothing says good morning like a freshly-baked case of donuts. At Weber’s Little Donut Shop, you can get small-batch artisan cake donuts made fresh daily. Donuts are $1.50 each, $9 per half dozen, or $18 per dozen. 

Tip: Weber’s is a small family-run business and only accepts cash, so be sure to keep a few bucks on hand in case you crave something sweet.

This is a popular spot among islanders so don’t be surprised if you see a line around the block. Unfortunately, since this is a small shop, they do not take pre-orders nor do they deliver.
