“Best Donuts In L.A.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

If you want a gourmet donut this is the place. I love the peanut butter pockets and peanut butter banana donuts but all of their various selections are incredible. I have been coming here for forty years and I have never tasted a better donut. This little shop is a landmark and in the heart of Westwood across the street from the Bruin and Village theaters. There is metered parking and public parking lots nearby.

“If you love peanut butter, stop here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

I had seen Stan's on a tv show and it mentioned they were known for peanut butter donuts. Being a peanut butter freak, I knew when I traveled to L.A. I had to find this place. It's just a small corner shop, but the donuts are delicious! I got the peanut butter banana donut, which is a yeast donut stuffed with peanut butter and bananas and topped with chocolate chips. The donuts are a little pricey, but they are big and one is plenty. The neighborhood is nice and near the UCLA campus, so you can walk around while enjoying your donut or sit on one of the many benches along the street and people-watch. There is a convenient parking garage right next door that is free for the first 2 hours. If you love donuts or peanut butter (or both!), you must stop here!

“Elaborate Donuts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Stan's is a cool little spot in westwood right at the corner of a 4-way crosswalk. The donuts are a little pricey, but it's because they are not your run of the mill donuts. I have tried a chocolate peanut butter and it was delicious...just probably not very good for you. It's uniquely westwood and that's a good thing. Worth a stop if you don't mind feeling remorseful for all the calories you just took in, but it is a donut place so what do you expect.

“One of the best donuts in America”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

This place has been written up many times. It is as good as everyone says. Stan offers a large variety of unique as well as ordinary donuts. On the high end, the donuts are really approaching being a pastry. They are expensive but worth it. Stan excels more with his raised donuts than his cake ones, but they are all good. Stan is also great to talk with. He is usually there.

“Great donuts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

We stopped by Stan's for a quick sweet donut snack to eat as we walked around Westwood. There were so many delicious selections to choose from that we almost went for the 13 for $11 special...tempting, it was!
