Best Doughnut Ever Today - Fratelli's

Fratelli's Doughnuts - 360 N. Canon, Beverly Hills

Sampled about 10 with a friend. The quality is ridiculous. Very light and flavorful, top-notch ingrediants. Tons of flavors, best apple fritter ever per my friend who knows them. I just had glazed and cake doughnuts.

  1. You tried 10?! Do they inform you as to how many calories are in each??

      If he sampled them with a friend, it's only 5 donut's worth of calories. :)

      1. re: silleehillee

        Acutally the calculation is 10 donuts divided by 2 people minus the stress-relieving properties of eating donuts with friends = 1 donut per person.

        Are you calling me fat, chica?

        1. re: Adsvino

          haha! No. I'm simply amazed at your courage and capacity for trying 10 doughnuts. Unless I only took one bite out of each one, I would probably swoon from the caloric sugarload or get really tired of doughnuts real soon.

          Kudos to you though! :-) And at least it was worth every bite, right?

      3. What varieties did they have? Did they have any that were still warm? And, do you have an address or url?

          David - everything you will need to know.

          La Verbila reviewed them a few weeks back.

        2. A donut shop in beautiful downtown Beverly Hills? What are they, five dollars each? :-)

            If I remember correctly, Virbila in the L.A.Times said they were a buck or two apiece. Is that correct? Is there a discount for a half-dozen or dozen? No prices on the website is usually not a good sign.

            1. re: nosh

              each donut is 1 dollar for a regular, and 1.50 for a twish or bar (aka maple bars, buttermilk bars, etc)

          2. I agree on the quality, etc. I am not a huge donut guy, but I was really impressed with the flavor, texture, and clean aftertaste. Even my 12 year old noticed that they were better than the usual thing. The cake crumb and cinnamon swirl were our faves.

            1. I went there last week and was really impressed as well. An interesting variety with both down-home and more gourmet varieties. The green apple fritter was perticularly good (very fresh and natural, while still indulgent), but liked everything I tried. And actually the prices were really resonable. Each doughnut was only about $1 each.
