Turkey sandwich was da bomb!

Their fresh turkey sandwiches were absolutely the best I've had in some time......not pressed meat either. Their chicken breast and pesto sauce was also scrumptious. My family became an instant fan so we'll be back the next time we're back in town. Thank you Sandy for keeping your cool during... read more

On the way to L.A. We stopped there by chance. We get there the bat donuts ever. And they are really cheap, 1$ each. People of Santa Cruz are really friendly and also the staff is top. Can only recommend this place.

Stumbled upon this donut shop by chance on our way into Santa Cruz. Well worth the trip; donuts are amazing and service is friendly.

I don't care if you have been on a diet for 20 years, YOU MUST COME HERE! I stopped eating donuts a year ago (unhealthy) and went inside with my nephew just so he could buy one donut. Ha! I challenge you to walk into Ferrell's and not buy a single donut. You will probably walk out with 3 or... More

Rolled in at 10:30 am, about 25 types of donuts available as well as croissants, bear claws AND 12 types of home made ice cream. Tables are bare, but service is quick and kind.

Another local treasure. Good donuts, good selection. Coffee not too bad either. I ordered a plain croissant. Very good. Daughter ordered ham & cheese croissant. Grandma ordered a bagel with cream cheese. All warmed up to our delight. Typical donut shop atmosphere, but a nice roomy place to hang. Open 24 hours. My daughter mentioned the late night person is... More
