I have not had a great donut since I left California in 1993. Oh how I long for a winchell's donut. My favorite is a glazed donut. Winchell's donuts is the best. I live in Georgia and they think krispy creme is the best. I beg to differ.Give me a winchell's any time. My dad owned a carpet shop in El Cajon. I used to walk across the street to get donuts and never got tired of them. The one on main and magnolia. Wow! what donuts they had! And those raisin squares. Oh my gosh! I better stop cause I can't just run out and get me one.
Not too many donut shops nearby. West Coast has been around for some time now. Their dozen donuts are only $8 as of 6/5/2014... not too bad. What I like about them is that they're not too greasy like the ones by the Palm St. Trolley. They also have Ice Coffees' and other wild drinks!
If you are looking to get awesome doughnuts you have to go here. They are the best of the best! Love this place we travel a 1/2 hour to get doughnuts here. I must admit I am glad they are a drive or I would be at least 15 lbs heavier!
