great donut and good coffee - Edit

Tried creme brûlée, apple fritter and the strawberry cream donut. Really liked the apple fritter and creme brûlée flavours! The strawberry donut was only okay the cream filling had a strange texture but after I removed that the donut was very light and fluffy and tasted good!

Pros: cheap , great flavours , nice coffee

just need to be ALL vegan! - Edit

We visited Donut Bar while in San Diego and got 3 out of the four vegan donuts offered that day: apple fritter, crane brûlée, and cinnamon sugar. The fritter and the cinnamon sugar were huge and all three were delicious - just as I remembered donuts tasting from before I was vegan. Now if only they'd just make all of their donuts vegan!!

Strawberry Split and Crème Brûlée! - Edit

Donut Bar is one of the best donut shops in the world. Huge donuts for less than $4 each with flavors like Strawberry Split- a yeast raised, sugar coated, lightly glazed donut so reminiscent of a childhood favorite, cut in half and stuffed with bright, naturally sweet strawberries, finished with a huge dollop of vegan whipped cream. It's a stunning donut, tourists from all of the world order it, devour it, none the wiser to it being vegan.

Likewise, the Crème brûlée donut is so popular among locals and tourists, vegan and non-vegans alike, that it is usually the first to sell out. A yeast raised donut filled with delicious, creamy custard, topped with a delicate but hard layer of caramel that practically sings when you bite into it.

All the vegan flavors on the menu are labeled with a little green leaf. Or, just ask for one of each vegan flavor.

Soy and Almond milk available for all their coffee and espresso drinks.

BONUS- Now open in the evening, too. Re-opens at 5pm until 10pm, serving craft beer.

Pros: Strawberry Split Donut, Creme Brulee Donut, Banana Donut

Cons: Parking, Long morning lines

Donuts to die for! - Edit

This place makes new and exciting donuts each and every day! For the flavors of the day you can check their website or Facebook page. They stay open til all the donuts are gone. They made probably 20 or so flavors per day, at least 4 of which are vegan. People line up down the block to get in and its well worth the wait!

When I went they had a vegan apple fritter, a banana caramel donut and a sugar donut. I tried all of them, and they were all very good, especially the banana caramel one, each bite was like a mini trip to heaven! There had been a few other vegan flavors that day, one of them being creme brûlée, but they were all sold out when we got there!

I definitely recommend trying their donuts and I recommend going more than once to try all different flavors!

Pros: vegan donuts!!
