National Donut Day

It’s National Donut Day! I didn’t even know that was a thing, but obviously not mad about it. I decided to celebrate by grabbing a Lemon Thyme Pistachio donut at Birdies in downtown LA (yum) and I put together a list of my favorite LA donut shops:

1. The oh-so-instagrammable donut

Birdies LA

California Donuts – cute animal themed ones!

Cafe Dulce

2. The actually-not-that-bad-for-you donut

Sidecar Doughnuts – made from scratch with fresh ingredients and no preservatives

Fonuts – baked or steamed with gluten-free and vegan options

3. The feel-like-a-foodie donut

Bluestar Donuts

Donut Friend – customizable and super creative

There are pretty much endless donut options around LA, but the real question is: Is it “Donut” or “Doughnut”? And when is National Pie Day? I’ll be there.
