If Bob’s was a stand-alone donut shop somewhere else in the city, we’d imagine it’d come with flickering fluorescent lights and a smoky interior filled with grumbling regulars doing crosswords and bitching about bike lanes. What we mean to say is this LA classic is as straightforward, and zero-f*cks as it gets. Though it’s not home to our absolute favorite donuts in town, they’re still good and worth a stop anytime you’re at the market before 10am. The menu is pretty wide-ranging, and we love the apple fritter and the gooey house cinnamon roll best. Come by between 8 and 9:30am and get the “early bird special” - a coffee and any donut of your choice for $2.95. Don’t quote us on this, but that’s probably the most affordable breakfast you’ll find in LA. Cash only.
