Donut heaven! Definitely the best donuts on the Westside plus they have a ton of delicious breakfast burritos, bagels and sandwiches. They even have a protien donut that is awesome, 9g of protien. The veggie croissant sandwich is amazing too.

Honestly there's nothing novel about these donuts so I'm not sure why it's so popular. But the donuts are consistently great, soft, delicious, and cheap! Love picking these up for groups and parties.

IN LOVE WITH THEIR O-NUT ICE CREAM SANDWICH!!!! I've never had an o-nut (croissant donut) before so I didn't know what to expect. When I came in and saw that I could add ice cream to anything, I was beyond thrilled! I LOVE ICE CREAM!!! What I Ordered - Ube O-Nut with Taro Ice Cream Mmmmmm....the Ube O-Nut was fresh, flaky, and delicious! The Taro Ice Cream was good as well! Only thing I didn't like was the ube cream frosting in the middle of the o-nut. Not sure if the frosting would taste better if I didn't add ice cream. It just seemed to be in the way as I was eating lol. I will be back! :D CASH ONLY

The minute thrillist LA released the location of LA's first cronut, thousands flocked to this unpretentious small donut stand. My coworker busted out of our office, called to make sure they had it and headed straight there. It looks like a normal donut store where police and old people frequent, not ones that would have trendy pastries like the cronut. I peeked my way inside and saw some hipsters standing in there and knew we were in the right place. They made the cronuts to order and once thrillist released that article, one of the girls who worked there said she hadn't stopped being on the phones taking orders. We got 3 flavors to share. At $5 each, this was def a splurge but OH, IT WAS WORTH IT!! I'm not a big fan of donuts, but this pastry incorporated the doughiness of a donut in the middle but the crisp flakiness of a croissant --& prob the cholesterol of both. 1. Nutella- def get this one. I haven't seen this flavor in any LA knockoff yet. I would say it's more of a hazelnut mousse than a nutella spread. 2. DK Cream- My favorite! I love the creamy custards that come in Asian pastries! 3. Strawberries and whipped cream- I imagined fresh strawberries but it's jellied/jammed strawberries. Not my cup of tea. We ate there and saw that a line started forming. and when we finished eating they were sold out!! Debated starting the cronut blackmarket here in LA with my half of cronut I had left, but it was too damn good that I just ate it all.

DK Donuts is super fun! The variety of donuts is huge, and of course they have the famous cronuts (known here as o-nuts). Amazing!! They also have wow-nuts made from waffles, but I was less impressed with those. And they have the obligatory coffee and breakfast sandwiches. Good stuff all around!

Best donuts I've found in Santa Monica - and I have done a fair amount of research. Old fashioned cake donuts are fantastic. Their O-Nuts are tasty and MASSIVE, I prefer the smaller bite sized ones filled with Nutella, you get the effect without the stomach ache. Ube donuts are tasty as well! Tried the waffle donuts once and was not a huge fan, but I feel like they're worth another shot. Cash only.

This is the Southern California home of the cronut, the most glorious/fat desert of the decade! The cronut is soft and the layers make the donut seem to last forever as you try to gulf it down. The waiting times are sometimes long especially during the weekends, but if you can pick one up before the lines pick up do yourself a favor and pick it up. Just don't plan anything after because you'll soon be in a food coma.

I was at an event in Santa Monica and on our way back a friend suggested that we drop by DK's Donuts for the famous cronuts. Now I've heard all the raves about cronuts but it didn't tempt me enough to drive 45 mins to the west side to try these heavenly desserts. Although since we were already there I decided it was worth giving it a try. When we arrived there was already a line to the door. With our Yelp check-in they also give you 6 free donut holes with any purchase! At $5 a piece, the cronuts were quite pricey but I have to admit they are way more delicious than donuts. The texture is slightly crispy and flakey and it isn't too sweet. I had the house cream cronut which came with cream filling. I also sampled my friend's glazed cronut which was amazing as well. There was a total of around 6 different types of cronuts (each filled with cream or jam, glazed and another sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar). I'll probably come back again if I ever find myself in the area to satisfy my sweet tooth.
