    1. Yes, I grew up here (in Pasadena) and I can't think of a noteworthy donut in the city!

      1. What about the place next to Good Times Pita Kitchen on Arroyo Parkway? I had a decent donut there recently. I think this is it:

        Royal Donuts
        633 S Arroyo Pkwy
        Pasadena, CA
        (626) 795-5336

            I third Royal Donuts. Very friendly owners and the donuts are always fresh and goooood.

              Yes! I especially like their apple fritters and donut holes.

            Thanks. I've been reading posts daily, and somehow missed that thread. :)

          2. I would check out Gladstone's on the corner of Lake and Washington (Next to Food For Less)
            1329 N Lake Ave, Pasadena


            BC's Donuts
            (626) 795-0012 - 2525 E Foothill Blvd Ste 1

            I think they have better donuts that Winchells, Pronto, and Donut and Burger. Both are also 24 hour!
