DK’s Donuts

Two words…24. Hours. Don’t let the run down strip mall exterior fool you. This westside establishment has been serving up world class donuts for 34 years now and they are the BOMB. Plus, nothing tastes better at 3am than a delicious warm donut, amirite?! They’re famous for their croissant+donut hybrid called and Onut and their waffle+donut hybrid called a Wownut. Our personal favorite? Onut stuffed with nutella and fresh bananas and topped with whipped cream!

Sidecar

Yes, we’re excited to inform you that the best donuts in Orange County are now available in Santa Monica. You’re welcome. We have been making the trek to Costa Mesa for years now just waiting for these babies to head on up the coast! Why are we so obsessed? They’re just that good. The Butter and Salt and Maple Bacon donuts are a staple in the IBT office and they’re famous for their Huckleberry! Definitely worth a trip to the beach!

Becker’s

A South Bay favorite, Becker’s has been around since the 1940s. While they have a ton of other baked goods, we can’t get enough of their donuts! Their sugar coated take on the cronut is delectable and we’re obsessed with their Fruity Pebbles and Cinnamon Toast Crunch donuts topped with our favorite childhood cereals. And you can pick up a homemade cookie for dessert! If you’re ever in Manhattan Beach, this is a must!

California Donuts

This is THE local hot spot for the most Instagrammable donuts. Their bright colors and yummy flavors are perfect for the cam…and your stomach. You can even pre-order custom donuts that spell out words. And what better way to say something than with donut letters?! #AWESOME. We’re personally huge fans of their oreo panda donut…obvi!

Blue Star

This famous Portland donut shop has made it’s way south to sunny Venice! It recently opened its doors on Abbot Kinney and has had a line ever since. They use only natural, quality ingredients – no artificial anything! And they offer a selection of vegan donuts that they rotate out. Their maple bacon donut is sinfully sweet (can you tell we love bacon yet?!) and their Pineapple-Pistachio Piña Colada is exclusive to their LA location. Definitely worth trying them all!

Colorado Donuts

While this east side institution is a trek to Eagle Rock, you will NOT be disappointed! Their expansive selection includes local favorites like purple velvet ube cake donuts, ferrero rocher stuffed cronuts topped with nutella, and a donut topped with fruity pebbles. YUM. They’ll even spell out custom words and phrases in donuts! And they just as good as they taste!
