I just need to know one thing, because I’ve gotten into some pretty heated arguments with friends of mine. What kind of donut are you partial to?
We’ve argued about the donut’s ability to stand up to the rigors of being dunked into coffee. We’ve had discussions about whether or not a cinnamon roll at the donut shop is a donut. We’ve even talked about the merits of adding bacon to a maple bar. Does it really make it taste better? Are you enjoying the donut because of what the donut brings, or is it the bacon? Does meat even belong on a donut? And if you add meat to a donut is it still a donut? Jelly filled flavors… Boston Cream Pie (that custard if effing gross)… And WTF do those little sprinkles add to the donut?! I claim that they add nothing, and he seems to think they are the cat’s meow.
He likes those ones that look like a loaf and a little alien is about to pop out of the thing. Needless to say he’s a cake donut guy. I think that this particular donut is merely an edible doorstop, and I use the word edible loosely.
So, what are your thoughts?
Cake, raised or something else
Also, where is your favorite place to get donuts?
I might need to do a little recon.
The kind that's within reach.

There are no better donuts anywhere on the planet.
Anything but Krispy Kreme!
I'm partial to maple bars.
Glazed, Chocolate glazed, most any others with Chocolate.
And good old plain cake. Very nice with coffee.
U.S. Donuts on Venice Blvd near National Blvd.
Donut Man is still one of the best:
915 E Rt 66
Glendora, CA 91740
Their fresh strawberry is pretty incredible.
Voodoo Donuts is a bit of a trip, but if you're in Portland, it really is worth the visit.
Fresh baked buttermilk bars can't be beat, although Bacon-Maple is fine with me.
The Memphis Mafia and Ol Dirty Bastard are my favorites. Especially at 3am.
Actually been looking for a good one in my new neighborhood(Hollywood/WeHo) area. Any recommends? As far as faves, the bear claw types trending towards danish are the best. Or even those dry ass buttermilk bar types. The traditional cake ones...not so much. Gotsta try Voodoo one of these days. They ship don't they?
OMG...that Memphis Mafia is dirty sexy.

Came in to post this place but beat me to it. When I worked in Escondido, I went here occasionally. This is the best donut place. Every donut tastes homemade which is how it should be.

As for the type, I love a simple glazed with chocolate frosting. Usually the chocolate taste and consistency tells me if everything at the place is going to suck or not.
