“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We visited this cute and comfy shop while in vacation and were not disappointed. The Bread Pudding donut and lattes were excellent, and service was great with fun personalities! We're on day four of our trip and this is still our favorite breakfast stop. Get there early for their famed Bacon Maple donut.

“Hard to find, but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

This place is tiny and there was a long line before we ever arrived. Plan to park a few blocks away and walk up. You orde outside and can choose to eat in. What a treat. We had a front row seat to watching the kitchen and all the donut making goodness.

The menu changes frequently and there are specials. These are hand crafted artisan donuts. They are irregular and unique. Absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this place. The people had great energy. The atmosphere was refreshing. The food was delicious.

I had the bacon doughnut. My wife had the Orange ginger spice. Yum.

If you've been to Voodoo doughnuts in Portland, you need to know that this place is very different. I prefer Dynamo and their doughnut flavors.  
It really feels like a one of a kind doughnut you're eating. I think it says something about the attitude of the cities where these two very different doughnut joints have taken root. the people were so friendly at Dynamo donuts in San Francisco.

“Sublime!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We went for a special donut for San Diego Beer Week and ended up buying four different donuts to try. We thoroughly enjoyed the Biere de Chocolat donut made with the namesake porter from Almanac Beer Company. Though not as good as Cartems in Vancouver, BC, Dynamo is much better than your run if the mill corner donut shop.

“We've had better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The donuts are not worth the price, especially if you're overcharged the posted price. There was no line, yet I had to wait to get take-out service. Customer service was definitely poor.

“Try the Strawberry Earl Grey donut in season!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Read about Dynamo in Saveur and had to visit on our recent trip out to San Fran. The neighborhood its in is questionable but the actual site is very cute and modern. The walk up window is very convenient but its nice to have the option to sit inside and be served if you want it. They recommended the Strawberry Earl Grey donut as well as the Bacon Maple. I was hesitant about the strawberry, but it was out of this world! I believe it is a seasonal donut, when strawberries are fresh in CA. Donuts are a little pricey for the size, but I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to visit.
