New Jersey is home to so many incredible, inventive donut shops, but one seems to get a little more love than the rest. Uncle Dood’s in Toms River has been serving up hot, homemade donuts for just 3 years (opened in 2013), but they’ve gained a massive fan following, and it’s easy to see (taste!) why.
Uncle Dood's Exterior
A small shop on a side street in downtown Toms River, Uncle Dood's is easy enough to miss.
Favorites + July Specials
You won't want to miss it though, with a mouthwatering menu that changes monthly.
Cannoli Cream Donut Sandwiches
You never know what delectable delights you'll find. The specialty treats, like this Cannoli Cream Donut Sandwich served on July 4th, are to LIVE for. They will blow your mind... and your taste buds.
Red, White & Blueberry Layered Cake Donut
This gem was served up special for Memorial Day Weekend. Other creative creations include a PB&J donut, a Dirty Jerz donut with pork roll & cheese sauce, and a Red Velvet Cannoli Cream donut sandwich that led to long lines out the door on Valentine's Day.
Bacon & Cheese Donnini
With delicious donuts and the occasional imaginative breakfast sandwich, lines out the door are often the norm - especially on weekends. Donuts are made to order, which makes them incredibly fresh, but you might want to call ahead to cut down on wait time. Still, the wait is worth it.
Platter Of Perfection
With well over a hundred reviews on Yelp, the spot still maintains a 5-star rating. Customers rave about the "mind blowing" desserts, calling the shop a "donut heaven" and noting that there is "no good reason to get donuts anywhere else." Each review is more glowing than the next.
Donuts made before your eyes!
Not only do customers love them, lifestyle website, PureWow, ranked them the #1 donut spot in New Jersey. Fun flavors, the opportunity to see donuts being made and the option to choose your own toppings? I have to agree that this place rocks!
