Primo's Donuts, Los Angeles, CA

Primo's Donuts Restaurant Review

: This mom-and-pop shop has been a Westside neighborhood staple since 1956. Family-owned and -operated (you can still find Ralph and Celia Primo in the shop most days), Primo's Donuts is known as much for its hospitality as it is for those famous crispy-on-the-outside-moist-on-the-inside buttermilk bars, maple bacon donuts and devil's food chocolate glazed pretzel donuts. Popular varieties may sell out early in the day, but there are plenty of other baked goods, including cinnamon rolls, croissants, danishes and turnovers.
