Stan's Donut Shop is the perfect place for the young and the young at heart. Long before the donut shop came along with a "KK" in the name, Stan's was cranking out fresh hot donuts. The place itself is tucked into a little strip mall near the intersection of San Tomas and Homestead. It is laid out like an olden... More

Went here to get a couple of dozen donuts for the office! Glad I did! Wow -- what a nice throwback to how donut shops used to be. The make all the donuts right in the front -- and they have old style counters, etc. Love the pace! The donuts were also awesome! I tried a bit of everything, but... More

Stan's Donut Shop is probably one of the few places in Santa Clara. There aren't many around other than the factory made at large grocery chains.

One can't really know until you've had one. It is no wonder there is always a line in this hole in the wall. I always go early, buy half a dozen to bring home to enjoy with a good cup of coffee, If we needed to buy donuts for the office or school, everybody wants Stan's, no other. Must try... More

Wow, what can I say about Stan's? Expect for the fact that it's been here for at least 50 years, is the mouthwatering donuts that I've come to crave for the past 20 years. A dozen for $8 is a bargain for fresh small batch donuts! They are hot and crispy straight from the fryer, and very addictive. I inhaled... More

They do their donuts fresh every morning. I recommend that you go there early morning to get your donuts, otherwise, the line gets really long. Still, the line does move along. Very small place and can get noisy and crowded in the early morning rush. I always get mine to go, so I can eat at leisure at home.

I was trying to describe where I live to someone that lives 45 miles away. He said "You mean by Stan's." It's a landmark. My only complaint is you better take what's coming out of the fryer because they'll be gone in a few minutes and that's all there is!

This place has been here forever. Best donuts ever, and believe me, I've sampled a lot of places. Nothing like afresh warm maple bar or cinnamon roll.

I actually go to Stan's donuts at least 3 times a week. What I like about it is that the donuts are so fresh, baked every morning. I believe it's a family owned business and they are so sweet. You have a choice to eat at the counter or wait in line for your donuts. The only thing I dislike... More
