    Best Sellers: Buttermilk and Glazed Twist. The buttermilk floored all of us. It was quite possibly the most gasp-inducing donut of the day.

    Best Sellers: Peanut Butter Donuts and Jelly Donuts. Samantha and I share a love for peanut butter, so we were VERY into this donut. There’s a reason why this is the most popular, folks! I’m also, always, partial to some donut holes.

    Best Sellers: Glazed and Beignets. Bob’s is one of the few places in LA that sells my favorite donut, glazed devils food cake. Not to play favorites, but that one is probably my favorite donut in the city.

    Best Sellers: Strawberry Buttermilk and Blueberry Earl Grey. First, a note! Fonuts donuts are baked, not fried.They have vegan  gluten free options, too! I love the strawberry buttermilk and the gluten free chocolate with sprinkles.

    Best Sellers: Croissant Donut and Red Velvet. Can you go wrong with a red velvet donut? NO. They have a bunch of croissant donut varieties, but I like the plain best. Not a donut, but my brother swears by their croissants.

    Best Sellers: Croissant Donut and Boston Creme. They make a s’mores donut which is fantastic. Also, if you’re into looks, this is one of the cutest places on the list!

    Best Sellers: Simpson’s DOH-nut (Strawberry Frosted) and Maple Bacon. I’m head over heels for their peanut butter cup donut, their signature panda donut called the “Steppie," and their seasonal specialties, like the Girl Scout cookie donut.

    Best Sellers: Green Tea Donut and Donut Holes. The fruity pebbles donut holes were some of the lightest donuts I’ve ever had! They don’t start putting out donuts until 10am and don’t typically have their full selection until 12pm.

    Best Sellers: DIY Donuts Our Fave: As you may remember from this post, you can build your own donut at Donut Friend! You can pick your donut, filling, glaze and topping. Of course, they do have pre-made varieties too, & awesome punny names to go with ’em.

    Spudnuts look like regular donuts but they are made with potato flour, so they are a kind all of their own! They have a slightly different texture so go with a raised donut here to see if you can taste the difference!

    Best Sellers: Ube Donuts and Wow-nut (Waffle Donut) Our Fave: The Ube donut is made from a purple yam widely used in the Philippines for desserts and was the onewe were most anxious to try. A friend recommended the blueberry cake and it was yum too!
