Bear claws are the best. The almond pastry is also delish. I was there very early (before 6:00) and they were open and well stocked. Wish I had gone there rather than Denny's. Didn't realize any other place else would be open so early. They...More

Dunkin Donuts...no thanks !!! No Krispy Kreme in Santa Barbara... no worries, Spudnuts is awesome and every bit as good as Krispy Kreme. Try the chocolate covered French crullers !!! The fritters ain't bad either.

These are the very best donuts I have ever had in my life. They are made with potato flour instead of wheat flour, and are light and fluffy. There are dozens of choices, and the shop has many different drink choices, too. Wonderful wonderful donuts!...More

I had my son with me on a business trip and thought we would splurge for a donut. Reviews looked great but in the end it was average. Great for a quick donut but don't expect much.

Spudnuts was my third choice for breakfast at this interesting little shopping mall near my motel. Upscale Jeannine's was filled to overflowing, and Rudy's, the Mexican place, did not serve coffee, so I walked a few more yards to Spudnuts, and I'm glad I did....More

The croissant-donut hybrid is delicious. I have tried both the Choclate and the maple flavors and they are great. Cost a lot more than your typical donut but worth it. I read they have 6 varieties of the cro-nut. They apple fritters are also very...More

Saw this on one of the foodie channels. Had to find it. They also have something that is a croissant/donut. Everything was great. The Spudnuts are made with potato flour. They are light and tender. Wish they had one in West Virginia
