Sit down, take your time, and enjoy a hot glazed donut along with a bottled coke. Stan will change your life.

The freshly baked donuts were amazingly good. The shop is a favorite place for locals too. There were a lot of people in the shop - dine-in and take-out when we were there after 9am. The price is very reasonable.

I lived a few blocks down for 8 years. My wife and kids wanted their glazed donut fix and mine the cinnamon roll just about every other Saturday morning. They make the glazed and the cinnamon rolls in-house. Go early in the morning before 8ish. If you get there any later put your name down for the next batch and... More

OK - you want a glazed doughnut. Stan's is the place to go. They are fresh. For locals in Santa Clara, many have been going here for years. For us, we stop by occasionally Are there other doughnuts we like in Santa Clara Valley? Yes, and they are good too,. For glazed however, Stan's is the place to go.

Stan's has the best donuts ever. All of the donuts are awesome, however, the chocolate bars are out of this world. I've been going there for 25+ years

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

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
