8.Donut Friend – Los Angeles
Chocolate From The Crypt Donutfriend
This donut shop is straight up LA rockstar status. With Donut names like Drive Like Jelly, Chocolate From The Crypt and G.G. Almond (all named after punk rock bands) you may wonder who owns the place? None other than Blink 182 Producer and Drive Like Jehu drummer extraordinaire, Mark Trombino. You may not want to spend $3 on a donut but you have never had a donut this good before.

7.Donut Plant- New York
This insanely good, yet awfully crowded must visit is located on the Lower East Side, right where you would expect a hipster donut shop to be. But they have flavors and shape that make the crowds swell to lines that can be up to an hour long on weekends. My advice; Order ahead. With flavors like Tres’ Leches, Creme Brulee and Mexican chocolate there is no shortage of customers. As anywhere in NYC, parking is a bummer so ride your fixed gear.

If you’re ever in North County San Diego, this is a must stop destination.
