From Glendora, CA comes The Donut Man, a legendary dessert shop that’s been around since the ’70s. Now, they have a stall at Grand Central Market, located at the front left corner (when you enter from S. Broadway), where you’ll find a giant case of freshly made donuts. It’s sort of like revisiting Madonna’s discography - confusing if you don’t know where to start - but whatever you decide to order, make sure to throw in a few strawberry-stuffed ones. They’re the donuts that made the man famous, topped with huge, bright-red fruits and drizzled in a sticky glaze. Don’t blame us if they ruin every other donut in existence.
