Good donut shop.

Went to Red's because of the better reviews and because they were open very early. Both of us were very happy with the donuts and coffee.

Got donuts from Red's in Seaside based on seeing a review. The maple cake donut was very good, but the cinnamon roll and glazed donut were only fair. I didn't finish the cinnamon donut as the favors were off. The classic seating and local hangout atmosphere were worth a stop for average donuts.

We went in with the "herd" (our children) to make memory one day because I remember going to the old style "Krispy Kreme" diners with my father when I was small. Robert (the baker) was so friendly to us, and the donuts were hot and fresh. I made of point of telling our grandson Robert's name and he remembers to... More

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!
