Donut Man

Bakery in Pasadena & the San Gabriel Valley

This roadside stand's been a place of pilgrimage for doughnut aficionados since 1972. Its pride and joy are the seasonal doughnuts, overstuffed with strawberries or peaches (highly Instagrammable), and the foot-long tiger tail. It's a trek even from the SGV (about 18 miles east of Pasadena) and has approximately zero atmosphere, but all that's forgotten at first bite.
