We used Carpe Donut for a Sunday, post-wedding (next day) brunch at our home for 100. It was a gorgeous day outside so this worked out well. They came with a cute little red Carpe Donut truck, their own tent and tables, and provided the entire set-up (including plates, cutlery, coffee cups, napkins, etc.). They arrived 2 hours before the event as promised, were friendly and efficient and the food was great! Our guests loved the donuts made right on site and some enjoyed the optional glazes we had ordered. The fresh donuts were so fresh and delicious. We ordered the additional omelet service and they made super omelettes to order using organic eggs. Our guests over them. The Bodos bagels and fresh fruit they provided looked good, but I didn't try. The coffee and juices were good. We added champagne, beer and water and were all set. It was so easy and delicious. Our guests loved it. I did pay for and add one additional staff member (very reasonable) to the 2 staff members provided in the basic service as we dd not want the guests waiting too long for omelets and that was a wise move as it helped move service along. 2 on omelets, 1 doing the donuts. great, friendly service, great food.

Without a doubt, Carpe Donut was one of the most complimented elements of our wedding day. Which is no surprise given that the donuts are absolutely delicious! I would choose them over wedding cake 101 times out of 100. Not to mention, the truck is adorable, and it simply gives guests something different to enjoy and talk about. We were thrilled with our decision to have Carpe Donut serve dessert and coffee at our wedding.

I've had a lot of donuts in my life and Carpe's are some of the bestttttttt!!! Our guests absolutely loved the donut truck. The truck itself is absolutely adorable and they even had a personal congratulations message on their chalkboard for us. Having a cake is definitely cheaper, but having Carpe Donut at your wedding is such a fun experience for your guests to enjoy in addition to being a delicious dessert. When we went for our tasting (sooo much fun) we were served hot original donuts and then a hot donut with ice cream on top. The ice cream donut was life changing and made you question why you haven't been eating donuts this way your entire life. I will say we were disappointed to learn after the tasting that the ice cream was not included in our quote and would cost extra. Lucky for us, our guest count ended up being a lot lower than originally anticipated so the ice cream addition fit into our budget! Everyone is still talking about how yummy and fun the donuts were! Also the truck makes for some adorable photos. Forget the cake and get Carpe!!!

We wanted our wedding to be fun, unique, and memorable, and Carpe Donut certainly helped with that! My husband and I were not interested in having a wedding cake, but definitely wanted an alternative dessert. Our caterer suggested Carpe Donut (he hired them for his own wedding!) and we were intrigued. Once we saw the adorable, whimsical, donut truck, we knew we had to have them at our wedding. Not to mention, the donuts were delicious! Matt and the team were really flexible with options (we requested lemonade instead of coffee since it was summer) and even put together little donut favor boxes for our guests to take home at the end of the night (perfect for our many out-of-town guests... breakfast to-go!) I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to add an extra element of fun to their wedding and really wow their guests!

Carpe Donut is phenomenal! I was determined to have a reception with a sense of fun and whimsy for our guests, and Carpe Donut delivered! The guests were absolutely thrilled with the option to head outside to an old-fashioned donut truck and feast on organic donuts and hot apple cider on a chilly night. Matt and the team even offered a bourbon and bacon glazed donut for us - which was out-of-this-world delicious. The guests have not stopped talking about how cool the donut truck was and how it was such a fun experience for them. We've heard over and over again that we had the best wedding ever and I fully believe that Carpe Donut was a huge part of that. I recommend them 100%, and will make plans to visit them every time I'm in Charlottesville in the future to bring some donuts home!

What a fun vendor! If you want something to make your wedding stand out, Matt and Carpe Donut are the people to use! Nothing says fun like fresh organic donuts, coffee, hot chocolate and hot cider. Our guests loved Carpe Donut, especially because we got married on a cold, clear January evening. They were able to step outside and grab their warm drinks and treats. To quote one (male) friend, "I actually went 'squeeeee' and screamed like a little girl because I was so excited about the donuts!" Carpe Donut is the perfect "splurge" to have at your wedding, because people will definitely remember how awesome they are! Also, everyone we met at Carpe, besides just the owner Matt, were really cool and fun people. Totally worth it!

We love Carpe Donut! They are an amazing local donut shop in Charlottesville. We wanted to do something different than cake and since we love food truck-type vendors we knew Carpe Donut was the best choice. They made unlimited donuts for our 80+ guests and put a fun twist on our event. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for your wedding, or for breakfast one morning if you're in town!

We had a bit of a struggle in the beginning with CD, mainly on the administrative side (not being able to get the big cart for our wedding day, emailing the owner [Matt] three times with no answer, and being told 3 days before the wedding that we haven't paid anything, despite the invoice they sent us showed it as 'paid')...which explains the not perfect 5/5. BUT besides all that, the day of, they were AWESOME. The guy working was extremely sweet, and we used the donuts in lieu of a wedding cake. Our guests LOVED it and thought it was a very unique (and yummy!) idea. Our guests are still telling us how they crave the donuts :) they also gave us (my husband and I) a box of a dozen donuts at the end of the night which was so sweet!!! We definitely recommend them for your wedding! You and your guests will love them.

Carpe Donuts brought so much fun and delight to our wedding! The donuts are DELICIOUS and would beat your average wedding cake any day of the week. Our guests absolutely loved them. Matt Rhodie and the whole Carpe Donuts team are wonderful to work with--so personable and genuine. I also have to highly recommend the "donut tasting" they offer when you book them for your wedding. Besides finding my wedding dress, that was without a doubt my favorite part of the wedding planning process.
