We planned to start our day with a cup of coffee and A donut. That plan went out the window when we arrived at the Donut Bar. Samoa, Lemon chiffon, apple fritter, decadent chocolate, cream cheese and strawberry. Shhh don't tell my cardiologist!

If I could give this place a million stars I would! On a five day trip to San Diego, the four people in my travel group purchased and ate 18 donuts. I'm not even embarrassed, they were incredible, and it was hands down the best food we ate on our trip! Parking is on the street, and can be hard... More

These are massive! I couldn't even finish one! Not a huge selection, but enough variety. Really cheap for the size and effort. Great little place, super friendly staff. Cute joint. Not gluten free options which is a shame.

Such a great find! We ordered online for early morning pick up to be sure we could get what we wanted before they ran out. the crème brulee donut exceeded all expectations. The apple fritter did not disappoint either. Fun place with friendly staff. I even bought a t-shirt.

We went here in the evening on a Saturday, so it probably wasn't the best (I really wanted to try French toast but they didn't have it) or freshest selection available. I got a chocolate ice cream in a donut cone, which was awesome solely for the novelty of it. I also got a blueberry cheesecake and a mud pie,... More

I was walking down this street and when I walked past Donut Bar I did a double take and realized this is the top rated donut shop in san diego and even top rated for a restaurant. So, naturally, I had to satisfy my curiousity and try it out. Here is my take: Donut Bar is a very stylish looking... More

Lining up for a donut is like lining up at bar for your fix. We arrived to donut bar at 730am before heading out to the airport and there was a line already. I must say at atmosphere is quiet funky when you step into the store it's like you are standing in a nightclub and your drinks choices was... More

Great donuts! Service was super friendly. The carmelized pineapple was the favorite of the sampler that we tried.

Friendly staff, delicious fresh donuts, creative in flavors and presentation. Great coffee. Be sure to spend some time looking around at the decor, even the powder room! Only con --- small selection of tshirts, wasn't able to find one I liked in my size to flaunt back home ;)
