Donut Savant in Oakland

j mather | May 22, 2012 03:38 PM

I recently stumbled across this new donut place at 1934 Broadway. All donuts are made without commercial mixes and they are made throughout the day. When I was there in the afternoon, they had glazed donuts that were fresh, warm and delicious. They also had a selection of small donuts sans holes of which a chocolate glazed was fresh and warm. The donuts are fairly traditional flavors -- i.e., no bacon -- though they did have a salted maple that was quite good. I see from their Facebook page that they are doing apple fritters too, which I will return to try. The owner is in the back making the donuts, and her mother is staffing the counter. Their coffee was good too, on par with the drip at most Peet's.
