We hope we did you right Huntington Beach. So in our opinion here is…
THE TOP 5 DONUT PLACES IN HUNTINGTON BEACH
5. Sweet O Donuts
We had asked you all what your favorite donut places were and Sweet O Donuts came up many times. We couldn’t wait to try it out! Out of many places that we went to indulge in, Sweet O Donuts came in 5th in our rankings. Check it out… The bakery was quaint and the owner was inviting. We got a dozen donuts and went town tasting them all.Their raised and cake donuts are more of a dense consistency, so if that’s your donut style this is the place for you.Mika’s favorite was the POKEBALL DONUT. If your kids are into Pokemon this is the place! These cute raised donuts are always on display. Now we had heard about this famous CHOCOLATE CHIP BAR from EVERYONE… check this thing out! This was AMAZING and definitely lived up to the hype! The fluffy cake mixed with the chocolate center and crunchy chocolate chip sprinkles was the perfect combo. When at Sweet O Donuts this is a MUST! Are you drooling yet? Milk please!We loved Sweet O Donuts and so will you!
4. Superb Donut
Coming in at #4 in the rankings is the ever popular SUPERB DONUT! This was definitely a FAN FAV we were excited to sample. If you want a place to grab donuts and coffee and walk to the beach this is your place. The location is amazing and right next to one of our TOP 5 MEXICAN FOOD RESTAURANTS linked HERE. This little shop is full of surf city character, you will love the beach vibe and the sweet little ladies that work there.They will gladly pose for photo opps or selfies at any time as well serve you delicious boxes of goodness.Superb Donuts saves the frills and serves you the best CLASSIC DONUTS. We loved the fluffy texture of the raised donuts and denseness of the cake donuts. The frosting was the perfect sweetness.We loved the simplicity of Superb Donuts and they definitely nailed their CHOCOLATE AND MAPLE BARS which are their specialty!If you like jelly filled donuts for sure try the raspberry. They are generously filled for your jelly loving pleasure! Superb Donut is definitely SUPERB!
3. Golden Boy Donuts
You might have miss this HIDDEN GEM while driving down Beach Blvd. so we were pleasantly surprised when we discovered this new donut hot spot. Golden Boy Donuts holds a solid #3 spot in our rankings. You might not of heard of Golden Boy Donuts, we hadn’t either, but their YELP reviews had us at “OUTSTANDING, GO-TO PLACE!” We had to visit and see what all the hype was about. The first thing we noticed when searching for the perfect donuts to try was their FROSTING! Wholly Frosting! There was a lot of it. Out of all the places we had visited, we never had seen frosting like this. They serve their donuts with thick chunky frosting, not the thin glazed frosting that most donuts shops love. We had to try this out…This is the owner, she was so sweet and extremely adorable! You will have to tell her hi from us, because you will want to visit this place ASAP!Here are a few of the donuts that caught our eye. Check out the maple bar in the back… we are still dreaming of that thick mouthwatering maple frosting. Here is a little side by side of their dense but light cake vs their fluffy raised PINK donuts. Again… that frosting was SWEET and amazing! If you aren’t into super sweet, this might not be the place for you, but for us it was heavenly goodness! The raised pink donut was one of our favs, the color was as sweet as the taste. The donuts were the perfect amount of fluffy softness to compliment the sugar cookie like frosting. And the chocolate raised donuts were to die for. That chocolate frosting coated our mouths and we never wanted to wash it down.Perhaps the best thing of all is the Golden Boy Donuts offers CUSTOM DONUT ORDERS! All you have to do is call a day or 2 ahead and you can order any color combination you would like for just $12 a dozen (for rounds)! Think baby showers, birthdays, St. Patrick’s day, Valentines etc! How fun is this? Check out some custom orders below and be sure to give Golden Boy Donuts a try next time you are cruising Beach Blvd.
2. Adams Ave. Donuts
At the top of our fan polls was Adams Ave. Donuts! Everyone loves this place! They are famous for many of their donuts as well as their long running (30 years) Saturday morning car show they call DONUT DERELICTS. If you are looking for a new family tradition, come join the rest of Huntington Beach here Saturday morning to check out the amazing selection of Vintage cars and their proud owners while chomping down one of their mouth-watering delectable donuts. It was a VERY close call, but Adams Ave. Donuts is #2 in our ratings.
We came on a Saturday morning to check out all the hype. It was crowded, but to our pleasure they had a constant stream of fresh donuts coming out every time a tray was emptied. Fresh donuts is where its at! If you want the best of any donut shop, get them while they are fresh!Our families always love a good jelly filled donut, and these were fluffy and FILLED with massive amounts of jelly! Here is the star of the show though. These BACON BARS are what sealed our love for Adams Ave. Donuts.Think about the most perfect piece of bacon you’ve ever had, crunchy but not burnt, not greasy or soft placed upon the creamiest warm bed of maple frosting and the light fluffy cake of the raised bar. Seriously, we could have stopped at Bacon Bar. But we had to go on…Drooling yet? ALL of these donuts were sooo good!Here is the famous PORCUPINE donut, it was not prickly at all. It was clearly one of Maddy’s top picks!Until she got a hold of this GIANT TIGER TAIL! OK we are still dreaming of this cinnamon delight! When you go to Adams Ave. Donuts grab a few of these. It may look big but these aren’t for sharing! If you haven’t heard of the Donut Derelicts you haven’t been in Huntington Beach long. Adams Avenue Donuts actually has run this car show every Saturday rain or shine for 30 years. You can buy Donut Derelicts paraphernalia inside the store along with your sweet treats.It’s so fun to walk around seeing all the cars and meeting their proud owners. If you haven’t been to Adams Avenue Donuts definitely add it to your Donut Bucket List and let us know what you think! Enjoy the eye candy while your there…
