I saw this place on HappyCow but assumed it would be closed after dinner time when I was wandering Abbot Kinney- I was so glad I was wrong! The mimosa donut was delicious- the texture was fabulous and I couldn’t be happier!

my kids loved place but they weren't shelling out $4-5 per donut . Do come here for desert after lunch / dinner but not if you are just looking for a cheap snack with family

My husband and I each got one donut and a coffee and our bill was $15! Donuts were ok but nothing really spectacular, really just a overpriced donut shop.

With flavors like: Raspberry Rosemary Buttermilk, Passionfruit Cocoa Nibs, Blueberry Bourbon Basil (my personal fave), Cointreau Creme Brûlée and...More

I was really disappointed by my donut. It was so sweet it burnt my throat and overpowered any actual flavouring of the donut itself. I got a sugar-rush headache afterwards too. Not a fan. They had some really fancy flavour combinations though, so I'll give...More

I have tried donuts around the nation, and I'm telling you, this place is a MUST. They make the dough fresh each and every morning, and each donut is nothing but perfection. The placement and vibe of the shop on Abbot Kinney is just another...More

After a long day at Venice Beach and surrounding neighborhoods, I wanted my dessert fix. I'm the only vegan of the group so I had to do some research. I remembered that when I was in Portland, I visited Blue Star and loved it! This...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
