Donuts in the Valley?
Ok, Since moving to the San Fernando Valley (coming from Pasadena), I found a great bagel place, taco place, thai food, chinese food and burgers. The little things in life that make my family happy!
We have been to so many donut places and they seem to all use the same "mix" for donuts. Nothing exceptional. There used to be Krispy Kremes, mind you they aren't "the best" donut, but they were unique...now gone from the valley... I guess peeps like chicken over donuts.
There is a donut shop on the N/W corner of Sepulveda and Victory which seems to be the best of the average.
<sigh> Is there a knock out donut shoppe that I don't have to take an hour (and 1/4 tank of gas) to get to?
Me and the familia usually get a donut craving about once a week and would love to find that cavity provoking, artery clogging scrumpcious fried piece of dream junk food! (we love Love LOVE Donut Man in Glendora... the problem there is, well....Glendora!)
K'S DONUT EMPORIUM is THE BEST at Ventura Blvd and Beverly Glen on the south east corner's shopping center. My favorite for crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside glazed old fashioneds that don't have a plastic mix taste. Great apple fritters, sprinkle covered, crullers (nicely eggy), wonderful chocolate chip or blueberry muffins (dense and cakey if you like em this way). And the family that runs it certainly makes a point of remembering and treating regulars well. Good coffee too.

Been to Dad's, really good stuff... Went to K's tonight, very good donuts, orange cake with orange frosting stuff... didn't get it but I will next time (wanted to try the classics first).
Cinnamon rolls are something you don't see at many other shoppes, the gent running the place was very nice... This one makes top of list, so far.... next gonna try Blinky's and Donut Hut... Finally, the quest is nearing the end...there is a decent donut in the Valley!!! isn't life beautiful???
side note to sbritchky: after chasing three kids all day, life is comatose at 3 a.m. (those were the days, my friend...)

Don't forget that Donut Man is open and frying/baking/cookin' all 24 hours of the day. At 3 a.m., your 80-mile round-trip is a piece of, er, strawberry donut. (Bring a thermos of good coffee and a box to hold the take-home component of your order securely.) I also "love Love LOVE Donut Man" and frequently make an even longer late-night run.
