Just love the donuts and baked goods. Breakfast, special occasion cakes, filled donuts, and good coffee.

Great low key ,kickback beach bakery - I have friends from out of state and this is their first stop when they get to SoCal. The raised crumb donut is to die for and you better get there early if you want the orange cake donut - not to mention the chocolate old fashion - heck you can't go wrong... More

Amazing donuts, I loooove a blueberry filled donut BURSTING with filling. They don't skimp on ingredients or portions. Try it. Coffee's ok, too :)

I'm generally not a donut person, although I've had my fair share in my life. Outside of V.G.s, I just don't eat them. But it's hard to pass up a V.G.'s glazed donut on a Saturday morning. The thing just melts in your mouth. For someone who likes donuts, this place is dangerous.

V.G.'s is an incredible place. It's a modest little shop in a tiny strip mall close to the ocean, very popular with the locals. Their display cases are crammed with pastries, each one more tempting than the other. I usually get a couple of glazed doughnuts and a cup of coffee. The coffee is nothing special, just about good enough.... More

Locally owned and operated forever. Best donuts and cakes for miles around. Go early and get a fresh cinnamon roll (the big flat ones not the bun type ones). You will never eat a nasty Cinnabon again.

VG means what it means - very good. The chocolate bavarian creme filled oreo cupcake that I had today was so good there are no words. Also tried the blueberry buttermilk pastry, and had a cup of coffee. Grand total of $4 and some change. So no complaints here, and I dont understand the other posts about a purchase minimum... More

They bake all their own stuff and they are family-owned. Nice crowd of locals gather around coffee and donuts most hours. Great location.
