    The WOW-nuts, a waffle-and-donut hybrid, are their signature. There are some great combinations like the Red Velvet Lust made with a red velvet waffle and cream cheese frosting. Read more

    Donut heaven! Try the Samoa Girl Scout cookie donut, red velvet bacon bits donut or the sprinkle cake donut. Every type of donut you can think of! Open 24 hours! In business for 35 years!

    Really fun donut shop with tons of varieties to choose from, all at affordable prices. Was predominantly featured in the Hulu documentary The Donut King and is a fascinating AAPI watch.

    Gotta go for what they're known for. Waffle donuts! I also had the red velvet waffle donut. That was good because I love red velvet ❤️❤️

    Quite the selection of donuts! Bring cash, though! They don’t take cards, which is funny, because their booth at last year’s #EatPlayMove Filipino Foodie Fest accepted cards.

    What a selection! A little overwhelming and some were definitely more desirable than others. Cronut was great!

    Try the donuts. Seriously, you can't go wrong with any of their selections. I wouldn't run out for their O-Nut or waffle donut but their glazed is to kill for.

    Soooo many great donut and cronut choices! The best spot we've come across in the Los Angeles area. Forget waiting in line in that other spot near Downtown.

    If you get a cronut, be sure to ask them to heat it up. That's the best way to have them!!! (Unless you are getting one with filling-then I'm not sure)

    Older than I expected it to be but also pretty wild, the sheer number of donuts, plus the wild colors/flavors/decorations. Yum.

    They seem to always have some experimental item on the menu, usually tasty and a cholesterol nightmare.

    They call Cronuts Onuts so they don't get sued. Taste great under any name. Follow them on instagram to gain 20 pounds instantly.

    It's usually a clusterfuck, with no clear organization, resulting in a lot of people waiting around the counter, with a long line and people feeling rushed to order without a chance to look at options

    Get the Cronut hole instead of the Cronut. They are both awesome but the whole is the best!

    I've driven past many Dunkin' Donuts to come here. Why suffer corporate blandness when you can get a tasty variety of pastries and support a classic local business?

    Cronut was OK. Tasted more like a deep fried croissant with sugar and fillings. I guess the deep fried part makes it part donut? AND it was $5!!!!
