Dumpy...but good

I'm a bit of a donut foodie, love to try out new shops and eat anything other than Dunkin. This was a nice surprise. We were needing a quick bite before heading out to Ventura so we swung in here. It's a dump, so much so, you wonder if you're at the right place. The building is having is makeover... read more

I stopped by this place as I was staying at the Le Meridien Delfina Hotel. I wanted a quick hearty breakfast without having to spend a lot of money at the hotel. I ordered the sausage egg croissant...it was absolutely delicious!! A Nice Surprise!

Back in Santa Monica for a few days, I was at the Donut King on at 3 separate occasions, each time with one goal: the chocolate chip bar. The chocolate chip bar is like an oversized glazed donut, layered with a thick coating of chocolate-chip studded chocolate icing, then filled with chocolate. When fresh in the morning, paired with coffee,... More

Easily missed, the Donut King, nestled in a plain strip mall that surrounds the Tommy's Burger Stand at Pico and Lincoln, is worth going out-of-the-way for. A miniature mini-mart and sandwich shop, the doughnut and pastry offerings are made on-site. There are two that I will loudly sing the praises of. My (and my son's) absolute favorite is the chocolate... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
