These doughnuts are like a cake, huge ADM beautiful. Freshly made right there. The line was outside the store. We had some of the sugar powder ones and they were fabulous! A place to visit when walking around that area.

Everything is great but if you’re going to use up all your daily calories here spend them on the fritters. They make great fritters in PA but these are better.

Got lost trying to find Bob's but never gave up. Ordered 6 glazed doughnuts and they were delicious. If you love doughnuts I recommend trying Bob's.

The donuts were superior. The clerk very friendly. The place is old and has hole in the wall ambiance:very nice. BUT. DIRTY. Where is the health department? Everything used in cooking is dirty, dirty, dirty. Come on Owner, cleaning will not ruin the ambiance!

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
