I may see if Hopkins Street Bakery in Berkeley has the lemon-filled donuts. I like the raspberry.
Bear Claw in Pinole has some good donuts made in-house.
Andy's Donuts on 23rd in Richmond make respectable donuts.
One of the few items I like a lot at Bouchon Bakery in Yountville is the jelly donuts. Worth the $3, IMO.
I had a pre-celebration of Thursday at Cafe Fanny with a beignet. Does that count? It should given the French connetion of this holiday.
Not a bad beignet but difficult to give a good evaluaton since I didn't have it till much later in the day. The sugar outside the puffy square beignet melted and got sticky. It came with a little container of fresh peach jam which was a little on the sweet side, but deeply peachy with chunks of the fruit.
What is your pleasure today?
