A whole day just dedicated to donuts?
Yes please. Our mouths are watering already. Wondering where to get your fix this Friday for National Donut Day? Here’s a couple of our favorite spots in the Bay.
This doughnut company has a doughnut cart in the West End Village in San Rafael and a couple in San Francisco in Hayes Valley and at the corner of Fulton and Gough. Their doughnuts are “inspired by the seasons” made with local ingredients. Delicious!
Paul, the owner of Twisted Donuts, grew up in the donut business so he knows his stuff. On the weekdays, more classic donuts are featured, but on the weekends, they like to mix in crazy specialty options. Located at 1243 Noriega St. San Francisco.
A classic. Since 1960, Bob’s has been serving the Bay with amazing donuts, apple fritters, and pastries galore! Open 24 hours, it’s the perfect stop after a night of bar hopping. You can find the shop at 1621 Polk St. San Francisco.
4. Donut Farm

Another classic shop that’s been around since the 80’s, Colonial Donuts is a must if you happen to be exploring around the Lakeshore area in Oakland. It’s also open 24 hours so you can satisfy your sweet tooth any time of the day!

What do you get when you combine a muffin and a croissant? A cruffin!
