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.

We were driving by on our way to LA and got a sweet tooth attack. We got the large chocolate eclair and some donuts and they were great! Even tho it was after 5pm, they tasted fresh. The clerk was friendly and helpful. While you are there, check out the thrift store. It is awesome!

Freshly baked and a wide variety of donuts. They also bake bread and pastries, too. Although they have coffee, tables and chairs, I usually buy a box of them for special occasions to share with early morning dog walkers at the park or for my contractors on a Friday as a treat. I must also admit to sneaking in and... More

Coming from Seattle, where we have Top Pot Donuts, I thought nothing could beat them. VG donuts are as good, if not better. Whenever we are in the area, VG's is the place to go.

Everyone knows that VG has the best donuts around and have for years, so I thought this same excellence would extend to their pies and ordered some for Thanksgiving. They were so disappointing that it was shocking. But, their donuts are great, so just stick with what they do best.

This place is open late. GO! Their donuts are warm and delicious. I had the raised chocolate covered and they dip them in glaze first, then the chocolate frosting. My husband said the apple fritter was delicious and the kids said they were the best chocolate chip cookies they've ever had! So good!
