    California Donuts is the quiet local favorite that every city needs. Being open 24 hours a day in K-Town helps as customers tend to queue up after the bar for a last bit of carbs and sugar before bed. Read more

    #6 in LA seriously? It's all about presentation. The panda donut is actually better than the other two I got, and delicious with a good balance of the sweetness.

    Open 24hrs. Earlier, the better, when they're freshest! Good donuts & cronuts. DK's Donuts in SAnta MOnica (1614 Santa Monica Blvd) is Better! Sketchy area but, always stoners/hipsters here! CHEAP!💲

    For birthdays I do custom letter donuts - whatever phrase/sentence/word you want, any donut flavor. My favorite flavors are green tea, chocolate covered strawberry and fruit pebble 🙌🏽

    The green tea glaze has a shade of green that makes you think of pastures on a hillside in Scotland. The taste is aromatic but not overbearing, and the dough is delightfully airy and substantial. Read more

    Chocolate glazed strawberry a purple one I forgot what it's called were delicious. Green tea wasn't good. Maple bacon cronut was a hit with everyone but I didn't try it myself.

    Very good. Seen this concept/flavours in Asia before, so I'm very happy to see it implemented in the west coast. Hopefully it picks up in North America.

    #protip: avoid this place at all costs on Christmas Day. If your life depends on it, then disregard. If your life doesn't, come ANY OTHER TIME (and watch some netflix.. you're welcome!)

    Maple bacon doughnuts. That should be all I have to say really. But all of their doughnuts are amazing!

    The sugar donut is nice. The rest of the flavors are just ok honestly. It’s more about the texture of the dough here than the actual flavors.

    It looks delicious, but not until you give it a bite, I think S&K donuts is better.

    Their donuts are bad. It seems like this is just one of those places for the 'gram 😐. It's not worth it for that either folks
