Ok, so I am from North Carolina, home of Krispy Kreme, so maybe I am biased. But...I am a sweet bread/cakes etc. freak and I know what good food is. These were just simply ok. But I have to give some credit, at least they tasted homemade.

The highlights of my life as a kid were weekends, and the highlight of my weekends is when my dad brought home Red's donuts on Saturday mornings. Whenever I revisit the place, I enjoy the tangible pieces of nostalgia from here which are their jelly and blueberry donuts. And, they are still as good as when I was a kid.

If you happen to be in Seaside this is a great place to get a doughnut.The owners treat everyone like a regular and have great fresh donughts.they have a counter as well as tables and chairs.Dont count on a table as the true regulars seem to keep those occupied but it is definitely fun and not a chain.

I dream of their MAPLE BARS and everytime I return to the Peninsula I have to eat a Red's Maple Bar. I hate that they have many calories, but it is worth the indulgence. They are fresh everyday with thick, gooey maple coating, and downright to-die-for delicious!

Probably not the healthiest way to start off your day, but it sure is a tasty one. This local donut shop has been around for a very long time.

Red's has the best donuts in the area. The glazed donuts are not only the best in the area but the best I've ever had. And the atmosphere at the Alvarado Street location in Monterey is not to be missed. The glazed donuts are so great, in fact, that I feel good giving this place 5 stars for food, when... More
