If you come here on Monday or Tuesday, regular donuts are $5 a dozen. And they are good! Favorite was the standard glazed raised donut. Friendly and fast service.

Red's is a favorite. Friendly staff - They are very patient with the people who stand at the counter and pick out donuts one by one.

Red's has been around forever & has an awesome following. They offer a huge array of donuts. Always consistent & fresh. Red's has 2 locations- 1 on Fremont in Seaside & 1 in Monterey downtown. They open very early for locals on the way to work😳. Enjoy a treat & cup of coffee.

D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S donuts, the best in Central Coast California. The fritters have wonderful fruit flavor without being oily.

This place has the best donuts on the Monterey Peninsula. They are the bomb. Staff is very friendly. You have to get there fairly early to get what you want as they do sell out fast. Monday and Tuesday is 1/2 price dozen day ~ I love this as I load up on cake donuts and put them in the... More

I have been eating Donuts most of my life. My favorite is a basic sugar Donut or once in awhile a Cake Donut. Had a Sugar Donut from Reds and it tasted old and oily. Just a disgusting Donut. Atmosphere of Coffee Shop is alright.

If you are a donut person then this is the spot. They always have them fresh and hot in the mornings but come early cause the donuts do sell out. The only downside is most if not all donut shops usually are open 24/7 and this place isn't so thats a bit of a bummer.

Great $5 a dozen special on Mondays and Tuesdays! A counter and tables available to sit and enjoy your treats! Monterey and Seaside locations have nice staff, too. Treat yourself!

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.

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.
