We hit this shop every single morning we were in San Diego! The doughnuts were always fresh and the staff was very friendly.

Title says it all for me. Have been loyal ever since childhood and will remain so until I'm swept off my feet. I'm a simple doughnut guy, glazed. Sweet and melts in your mouth as if the mythological god of sweetness blessed it herself.

Krispy Kreme is great, wish the sports arena location was still open, used to go as a kid after Gulls/riptide games. Original glazed is the best by far (don't try other items, not merely as good). This location is decent, once I saw a guy load his entire truck bed with donuts.. Had to have been 100+ boxes. Great experience... More

We stopped by for breakfast and bought a dozen doughnuts. They were fresh. It was fun watching the doughnuts being made. Store was clean, service was quick and friendly. The store was clean. Typical Krispy Kreme.

We don't have any in NH so whenever we are in a state that has them we head right over. They are always so yummy! Donuts are fresh and hot and service is fast.

In a mad fad, the crowds lined up around the block. That slowed to an occasional car in the drive through and no one bothering to go inside even though you always get a free fresh donut. The donuts are still great and the service is still excellent but I miss the energy of the sugar-crazed crowds.

Our family is from the Carolinas, with two living in San Diego and two visiting. When we found out there was a Krispy Kreme in San Diego, we had to take our (grown) kids there for a taste of home! The doughnuts were just as addictive as ever, especially the hot glazed doughnuts rolling off the production line. Well worth... More

If you're like most American's, you've very weight conscience, so going to Krispy Kreme with intent to indulge in some heavenly donuts makes no sense to the unknowing, as we consider this the opposite staying healthy. Well one who is active and exercises physically and locked into “portion control" can take comfort that this is an occasional reward for "good... More

This is a fabulous friendly Krispy Kreme with friendly employees, great coffee and nice warm doughnuts. The restaurant was immaculate and the service was impeccable.

Gotta admit, I'm hooked. I love their simple, glazed doughnuts. This location makes them fresh pretty often, but their service on all 3 of my visits has been incredibly slowwwww. Otherwise, I love it. Also, and I know this for the whole chain, their doughnuts seem a little bit steeper priced than other bakeries.
