“Fresh and pure. Consistently good for the last 50 years.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

This little place is where to go for a good quality donut made by hand. The other franchise place may have a machine and make a warm donut but one that lacks character and soul. And that other place may have an enormous donut on the roof and great for photos but the donuts are nothing special.
Go to Stan's. Meet the grateful owner. Know you are tasting a bit of history and it will be good.

I hope this review has been helpful to you.

“Yummo doughnuts, and Stan is a sweetie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We went to Stan's for donuts on a Saturday morning. We were visiting from Chicago. He offers about 30 different kinds, all fresh and delicious. He was there, we introduced ourselves, told him where we were from and how we heard about him (from a friend who used to live in Westwood) and he took a picture with my sister and chatted about having come to CA in 1951 from Philadelphia. He also gave us 2 jelly doughnut holes as samples! His orange doughnuts are superb - light, bright, flavorful, sweet, with plenty of authentic orange taste. It is more of a doughnut stand than a shop - the only seating is 2 bistro tables outside, but the doughnuts are well worth it. Friendly guy, great doughnuts - the kind of little independent shop everyone should want to patronize and keep in business. Two thumbs up.

“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.
