YUMMY!

The best donuts in Santa Clara. There is a line every weekend, and they go fast. You may need to wait if your favorite kind is out, and currently being made. However, if you can't wait there are others to choose from.

Stan's donuts are such a treat. They taste delicious!!! It is a event to go to Stan's and wait in line for the fresh donuts to bring to work. They can't make them fast enough and keep the quality consistent. Locals go here and know it is worth the wait. It's crazy in the morning as the place is flooded... More

Freshest warm gooey glazed donuts. Great variety of cake , filled and old fashion , all are made fresh daily They also make delicious cinnamon rolls and are usually available between 845-900am. They go fast , people get there early and pay in advance. Have been coming here for more than 30 years and just as delicious as ever!

I live down the street from this shop and have been frequenting it for years! Nothing gimmicky, just simple, delicious, donuts for a good price. Love their different flavors of buttermilk that they change every day! There is a reason they have been around for a long time!

I don't know how they do it, but those glazed doughnuts are pure satisfaction. Most people don't come for the service, the seating, the coffee, or anything else. I'd estimate 90% of the doughnuts are taken out. I'd bet 50% of the doughnuts are taken to work (by the dozens).

One of the best if not the best glazed donut in town. The others are great too. I have been going to this shop for a number of years and have never been disappointed unless I get there near closing and some of my favorites are gone.

An old fashion donut shop in Santa Clara, making on the premises. Best donuts ever. Just real donuts and coffee, what more could you want in the morning

This place is very popular, with good reason. The donuts are as fresh as they come, and they are yummy. The menu is limited, and the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. If you are looking for that blueberry-strawberry oatmeal donut, you will be out of luck here. But if you want a regular glazed donut, or an... More
