The recent cold snap has had far-reaching effects–on the Donut Man’s famous strawberry doughnuts. They’ll be arriving later this year. In the meantime, if you venture out to Glendora, cross your fingers that you can get some other kind of freshly made doughnuts (try bear claws or apple fritters). That’s pretty likely, since they’re open 24 hours. Warm and gooey, this is doughnut perfection, says Dommy. But gossamered reports getting some not-so-fresh ones–proof that it pays to ask.
The unusual combo of chocolate chip-peanut butter-chunks of fresh banana can be found, in a doughnut, at Stan’s Donut Shop. When fresh, Arthur says it’s outrageously delicious.
For traditional doughnuts, Primo’s delivers. Well, they don’t actually deliver (I don’t think), but their doughnuts, including the superlative buttermilk bars, are well done indeed.
The oh-so Beverly Hills doughnut shop Fritelli offers high-concept flavors with the promise of high-quality ingredients, but gussied up in perfect icing as they are, you certainly don’t get the feeling they’re fresh from the fryer.
