We made it to the weekend, thank goodness! And what better weekend treat than a donut for breakfast? I’m of the opinion that if I’m going to splurge on some calories, then I’m going to go all out. It is a treat, so may as well have fun with your donut selection.
Fortunately for us, we have a number of ‘specialty’ donut stores within the San Gabriel Valley/Greater Los Angeles area. My personal favorites are:
- California Donuts- 3540 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90020– Features specialty donuts such as cereal frosted and character or animal designs.
- Colorado Donuts- 1578 Colorado Blvd, Eagle Rock, CA 90041– Their cronuts (croissant donuts) are delicious, especially the fruit-filled kinds. They can do special orders in advance. There is a $10 minimum on debit/credit purchases, but that’s easy to hit with the average specialty donut being $3-$4.
- Donut Friend- 5107 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90065– Cute shop where you can customize your donut with an assortment of toppings and fillings. There’s a menu of delicious options to choose from, or you can use your creative genius to build your dream donut.
- The Donut Man- 915 E Rte 66, Glendora, CA 91740– This is the world-famous Donut Man, as featured on many food and travel shows. Trust me, if you’re a donut fan and happen to be in Southern California, you can’t not drop by for a treat. Donut Man’s specialty is seasonally fresh fruit-filled donuts. These are massively filled and oh so yummy. Summer brings peach and strawberry, my personal favorite. There are also cream-filled, tiger tails, and ‘regular’ donuts. Cash preferred.
