Stan's Donuts on TV Tonight

HBfoodie Mar 6, 2009 02:27 PM

Huell Howser's show on CH. 28 tonight at 7:30pm will feature a visit to Stan's Donut Shop in Westwood. I will be visually stimulated while viewing those delicious creations, but plan on dropping by soon to sample some of Stan's donuts myself. Question: Besides the peanut-butter, what are some favorite donuts that I should not miss?

    I think their plain glazed yeast doughnut is the best in LA. I also like the pretzel doughnut.

        Haven't been there in awhile, but the last time I enjoyed their chocolate pretzel donut and cheese Danish donut.

              My current fav is the peanut butter & jelly. Also love the pbutter & chocolate, the cinammon pretzel, cheese danish donut, chocolate jelly filled and the the pineapple upside down cake. Do I spend toooo much time at Stan's?

                  Used to live there in college. They used to have a counter that served hamburgers, hot dogs and fries. Really good hamburgers and amazing fries. The drummer for a really cool LA band (The Question) used to work there.

                  I used to really like the peanut butter/chocolate chip, but I can't imagine eating it now.

                      I miss Orange Julius, there was one just down the street, then it became a mexican place that served Orange Juliuses, now it is an overpriced taco stand for gringos that doesn't serve Orange Juliuses!

                        which overpriced taco stand are you talking about.

                          Machos Tacos on Vermont at Prospect. Not as big, not as good and more money than El Gran Burrito just down the street.

                            oh, you're right, i've been there before. it looks like it could have been an orange julius in the past. by the way, their fish tacos are atrociously bad.

                    My fave has always been the raisin buttermilk bar, particularly if they have any UNglazed -- though the glazed are pretty much perfect, too.
