There are a lot of things that make us smile here at Upper Ivy apartments in Culver City. A California sunset, a successful workout in our state-of-the-art fitness center or nearby Culver Stairs, and a well deserved sweet treat. At the moment, we cannot get enough of donuts! Donut shops are endless when you are living in Los Angeles. That said, here is a list of what we believe to be the best donuts in LA.


The Best Donuts in LA

Donut Friend

First up on our list of donut shops around your Culver City apartments for rent is Donut Friend. This donut shop stands out from the others on this list because they give you the chance to customize your own donut. Choose a style, then a filling, and last but certainly not least, pick out some toppings.

Trejos Coffee and Donuts

That’s right! The one and only Danny Trejo is a donut fanatic! So much so that he had to open up his own shop. Unlike many celebrities who open up a restaurant just because they can, Danny truly loves donuts, and you can tell. The selection is vast, with excellent seasonal options. Everyone raves about the Quinceanera donut.

Sidecar Doughnuts

As it states on their website, they offer “perfectly handcrafted doughnuts that are the freshest in the world.” Their flavors are very inventive, and you can expect surprise seasonal flavors every month. Their staple doughnuts are Butter & Salt or the Huckleberry doughnut. Plus, they make a mean coffee. And on a healthy note, they serve gluten-free doughnuts as well.

Blue Star Donuts

Last up is a donut shop in the heart of Abbot Kinney, just a quick drive away from your Upper Ivy luxury apartments in Los Angeles. We would go so far as to say that our favorite donut is on this list. It is their famous blueberry bourbon basil donut.
