+ Great desserts/donuts + Friendly staff - Higher than expected pricing - Sandwiches aren't very impressive I came here around lunchtime to look for something to eat. I pass by this establishment often but never went in so I decided to give it a shot. Their dessert items are amazing and I highly recommend them, but they are priced a little higher than I would like. If you are ordering food (and you are hungry), I would probably look elsewhere. The sandwiches do taste pretty good, but there is very little meat in there (see photo). For $8.50 or so I would have expected something a little better. At least they give you a small salad on the side. Service is fast and the employees are friendly. There is some bar seating inside and limited seating outside.

Green tea donuts only come out around 11am so don't come expecting a green tea donut. Their jasmine latte is really good too! Their green tea donut has great texture and very sugary, my only complaint is the cream filling wasn't green tea flavored (which I expected)

Donuts are fresh at 11am, that's the tip that I got from the super duper friendly cashier girl. I like her bubbliness. So whoever you are, good job for making me happy too. I came on a late Thursday night. When drinks were running slow, she made sure that those waiting didn't feel ignored. There's a good deal of selection here if you like donuts and dessert. I opted to try at least a latte as well since this is a cafe after all. Seating is pretty limited. There are tables outside but on a cold night you don't wanna be out there. There's an internet password, so just ask the barista. -=-Dulce Latte-=- This and the regular latte are pretty similar, but the Dulce Latte is so much sweeter. Regular latte drinkers would probably not like this as much since the froth didn't give that enlightening taste that only froth lovers would know. -=-Bacon Maple Donut-=- I had to get one of these because it was my first draw here from what others have mentioned to me. The dabs of bacon sweetened with maple syrup really does make for a great dessert flavoring. I would have probably enjoyed this more if it were hotter, but well, it was like fifty something degrees outside. -=-Fruity Pebbles Donut Hole-=- I actually preferred this to the Bacon Maple Donut. Funny how that comes out of my mouth. It this case, the Fruity Pebbles Donut hole wasn't as sweet tasting as the Bacon Maple Donut. Me being a non-sweets person, I actually liked that.

Went downtown last weekend for a friend visit and we had our snack here because we heard that their donuts are the best. We tried four of their donuts. They look so presentable, cute and attractive but I am not a fan of the quality and their donuts were too sweet for me. Not something I would particularly crave on. However, their bacon donut was tasty and smells great. I even ordered twice. If only I lived nearby then I could have this donut everyday. If you ever lived in Little Tokyo then you should visit this cafe shop and give bacon donut a bite. My friend and I also ordered mocha and we both love the taste even it was a bit creamy. I like the atmosphere of this shop and the space is clean. The crews are so friendly as well.

This place is adorable, but the service is not great. Additionally, the donut I bought (green tea) was pretty, but was raw inside, which made it disgusting and impossible to eat. I might try Dulce again once I get over the memory of that gross raw-dough flavor.

Perfect suggestion to start your day?Hit up Culver city stairs and then hit this joint up. Me and the boyfriend discovered this hidden treasure via yelp and Halloween were we pleasantly surprised! The owner was soot friendly & we tried the supreme breakfast croissant and breakfast burrito and my oh my were we delighted! The breakfast croissant and tiger iced latte went together like chocolate and vanilla swiirrrrrl shutout to crazy eyes. Come here for a sexy, delectable fix to start your day!

Donuts here are a bit on the sweet side but I love the vibe of this place. It's very small and quaint much like the selection of donuts here. The staples are $1 donut holes: fruity pebbles and bacon are recommended. The full size donuts are $2.50 each and are very special, the green tea donut is my favorite. This is perfect walk around food. There's some seating on the outside but the inside is very small. What's great is it's in the middle of the village so it's lovely! Also to validate you have to buy at least $5 of food!
