Does anyone know what time they open? There goes my Weight Watchers "points" for the day. LOL!!

  1. Probably by 6 or so. I'm normally there at 7 a.m. and the choice of fresh donuts seems good then.

      i live within walking distance. i'm going today. darn you chowhound!!!

      1. re: tony michaels

        Hey Tony, I think they open at 5:30AM during the week, and 6AM on Saturdays... But hey - they're a family business - if they decide to open at 5:45 or 6:15, I'm sure no one will complain... just more hungry...

      2. If you are going to Primo's, which is on Sawtelle just north of National, combine it with a stop at Royal Donuts. It is not far away in the middle of the strip mall on the S/E corner of Sepulveda and Palms, across from the Trader Joes. Be sure to try the cinnamon roll and the crumb donut.

          My donut mission to Primo's and Royal will be tomorrow, Wednesday. Thanks and curses, lovingly, to you all!

            When are the donuts warm? Only right when they open, or will there be some at 10 ish?

            1. re: cupcake

              I've had donuts from Primo's that are still warm at 10-ish before.

                I think they make the buttermilk bars all morning long. I've never had one that wasn't warm.

                  I've had some that were room temperature. I didn't mind though. I've had them freshly made out of the fryer, and I think I prefer them cooled down a bit with a slightly warm center. The bar loses some of its moisture like that so the exterior is settled and crispy and the glaze hardens up a bit and crackles. details....details....

                    Be still, my heart. Seriously. I will report back tomorrow.
