I'm not a donut snob, but dang if the donuts here aren't some of the best! I try to get there early morning (they open at 5am) and sometimes I can get one still warm. The texture of my favorite, the good old raised glazed, is light and fluffy and not to sweet. The Old Fashioned aren't hard and crusty,... More

I had a chance to stop by Donut King this morning after an early morning medical test. It was time to treat myself to a donut and coffee on a rainy day. WOW - what great donuts!

My family has been getting donuts from Donut King fir the past 15 yrs and have never been disappointed. I agree with the other reviewers and skip Krispy Kreme...the local donut shop is so much better. Get there early as they run out frequently!

I have only been here a couple times. I just don't eat donuts often (2-3 times per year). I told my wife that I was going to treat our nieces to a couple donuts two weeks ago. Man, they were great! First, I almost always see a Pleasant Hill police car parked outside. No jokes here. Cops know where to... More

A small donut shop, but a large variety and excellent tasting donuts and other pastries. Coffee is very good. Several tables where locals gather to have morning coffee and talk story. Several types of breakfast sandwiches, that are large enough to share.

We couldn't visit America without having a proper donut. Luckily the friends we were staying with knew exactly where to take us. A lovely little spot with an incredible selection and the ones we all had were gorgeous. Thankyou.

Skip Krispy Kreme. These donuts are bigger and fluffier, and the selection is better. Plus, there is no line - quick, friendly service. Try the muffins as well - super delish!
