Awesome fresh donuts

Been coming here since I was a little girl. The place looks exactly the same as it did in the 70's. It's practically a right of passage to get a donut here!

When in Livermore, my grandsons love going to the Donut Wheel. A very good selection of donuts for both them and me. The coffee is always fresh, hot and good. The grandsons enjoy the chocolate milk, Orange juice or Apple juice. The Donut Wheel is a great gathering place for all.

Came here to have a chance to hang out more with friends and catch up after a very nice dinner. Ended up getting some coffee and donuts. The donuts are cooked fresh and coffee was good. A good place to hang out. The place is a revolving door of diverse population. People of varying age, gender and race were visiting... More

They are simply the best donuts around. Donut Wheel has been a staple in town forever, it seems. Always busy, always fresh.

Normally just a stop for donuts for the kids. Last visit discovered that they have shaved ice and ice cream. Future visits definitely planned!

Cool 50's building - stark inside though, but open 24 hours for any coffee or donut fix you might have. When hot the donuts are very good, but hot fat and sugar are sure to please. Coffee is ok, but nothing special.

A woman I know said, "You must go to the Donut Wheel," when I told her I would be in the area. Apparently the Donut Wheel has existed for decades and all of Livermore loves it. So, we stopped in here, expecting to find the most delicious and fresh donuts. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Service was friendly enough,... More
