Arriving in Belmont yesterday with a few minutes to kill before our appointment, my dad pointed at Chuck's Donuts again, so I figured this was as good a time as any to drop-in for an afternoon snack. When I asked him what kind he wanted, he said, "one of those big fluffy potato donuts."

Well, no luck getting a potato donut here, but he was happy with a big fluffy raised with a very thin layer of glaze. This was very tender and moist with a nice yeastiness. I had a maple cruller, that was above average, but not as good as the raised. These seemed a few hours fresher than I'd expected at mid-afternoon, and it turns out that this 24-hour spot makes donuts around the clock. I saw plenty of Bakemark products around, so they're probably made from mix. But, you can get a freshly fried donut but checking on what's just come out and it's open 24-hours.

Chuck's Donuts
641 Ralston Ave
Belmont, CA 94002
(650) 592-6404

P.S. Anyone know where to get potato donuts?
