  1. Well, Arizmendi/Cheeseboard remains my favorite. IIRC, you favored Casa Latno last year. Here's my list of what I've tried to date

      Mi Tierra has 2 sizes. I had the small with sugar sprinkling, almost cake like and $1.99, so far, this years winner.

        Not that Mi Tierra, this one.

          To avoid dealing with links, the MT you linked to on San Pablo only had one type this afternoon. It was brioche-like. Oddly enough, it was almost exactly like the donut I had this morning at that poplular pizza place on Telegraph this morning which is located near an upscale Mexcan market and a bakery run by an Australian couple. If I see a damn link, I'm going to spit ... spit, spit, spit ... I need to remove the link to a place called Pizza Place in Walnut Creek ... and the damn editor capitalized pizza place.

          You know, I think you have something about this being the winner in that category of dead bread. I'm having the rest for breakfast this morning and there seem to be a pleasant orange peel flavor to it.

          Arizmendi is just a different type than no one else makes that I know in the Bay Area.

      2. I've seen it at Las Montanas in Concord, for those of us that live in Central CoCo.
