Great San Diego donuts

While in San Diego for the day, my sons and I stopped by Donut Bar after breakfast. There was a line to get into the pace Though few donuts were left by 11:00, we did make it in before they ran out and closed. The Creme brûlée donuts were very good. Get here early for a good selection. They... read more

The donuts were huge and tasty! The ordering area is narrow and it can get crowded rather quickly. They have a large selection of specialty donuts, so if you're looking for plain glazed you may want to forego this place. They have extra seating in an upstairs cozy loft area. The staff was helpful and friendly. We would definitely return... More

It's no wonder this place is so popular - the donuts are simply to die for (& you will, of heart disease if you eat too many!!)

Was visiting San Diego and decided to wake up early to line up for the donut. Some of the donuts were already sold out, so there are no doubt that this place is popular! Bought the homer donut and it was big and fantastic! If you are visiting San Diego, this is worth trying out!

We didn't go in to this new place because the lineups were around the block. We were told to go when it opens and its worth the line up for the donut.

Get there early so they don't run out of whatever donut it is that you want. There was line everyday that we went, but it moved fast. Everything we had was great. If you like crème brulee, do yourself a favor and get their crème brulee donut. It might be the best donut I have ever had. Served their milk... More

The Donuts are very good, every flavor we tried was full of flavor, had an amazing dough (both the cake ones and the deep fried) and the combinations available to us were delecious. Well priced and the pineapple one could feed a small family of 4. However a few things let us down big time: the coffee was not good.... More
