If you haven't tried Stan's glazed donuts, you must. It is simply the best tasting donuts in the bay area.

If you love donuts, I mean really looove donuts, you have to go to Stan's. The raised glazed donut is like a bite of heaven, (and so big!) and their most popular kind. They run out often, but wait a few minutes and there will be more. Cake donuts are not my favorite, but Stan's are definitely a bit above others I've tried. Small place but has a counter and stools if you want to sit and dunk.

Excellent donuts- probably the best I've ever eaten. We found it by chance because it was the closest to where we're staying. What a stroke of luck! The outside looks like any other strip mall store but the inside is bustling and there is the wonderful smell of fresh donuts. We will be eating there again before we leave town.

They are hidden at the end of a strip mall and they have been around FOREVER!...But don't forget to bring cash...it's all they take! and you don't want to miss out!

Not sure what they use in their dough but the donuts are very soft, fluffy and just Yum.
The Glazed is the hot favs. Make sure you get a dozen to get the best ROI.
If you go late, you will either have to wait for the next batch or maybe run out.
The wait is not too long. Good service. If you want to enjoy just one with a cup of coffee you can do it. Small place but worth every penny.
