Donut Bar | San Diego’s Donut Bar was named by USA Today as one of the top 10 tastiest doughnut shops in the US. This spot is famously known for its long lines, locally sourced ingredients, and over the top, gourmet sized sweets making it a “must try” on any foodies visit to SD.
HOURS & DIRECTIONS
631 B Street
San Diego, CA 92101
Monday – Friday | 7:00am – Sell Out
Saturday & Sunday | 8:00 am – Sell Out
“Sell Out” means the shop will close when they sell out of all their donuts (so the closing hour is different every day)
WHAT WE DID
First and foremost, parking is horrible, but then again that’s how I feel entirely about California in general. The shop is located down a one-way street so naturally, I had to circle the block 3 times before finding a 15-minute minute parking spot.
Jason ran in while the rest of us waiting in the car and was able to skip the line as we had pre-ordered the night before. Pre-ordering is encouraged on their website as they sell out daily. You do, however, have to order at least a dozen and can only do so between 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm the day before.
The shop serves a variety of gourmet sized donuts ranging anywhere from $2-$5 (including vegan choices) as well as coffee, beer, and mimosas.
A few of the donuts we had were as followed: French Toast Donut, Apple Fritter, Birthday Cake Oreo, Red Velvet, Strawberries & Cream, and Peanut Butter & Jelly. The donuts were very delicious and I was surprised at how huge some of them were. I was however very disappointed 3 of the donuts we pre-ordered were not included, mainly the Big Poppa Tart Donut (which was one of the main reasons I wanted to check the place out), bummer!
Overall the Donut Bar lived up to the hype and we were happy to cross it off our bucket list.
Jaxon certainly approved!
