Zelda’s is the greatest sandwich and donut place in Venice you’ve never heard of. That’s probably because it’s right off the boardwalk, but if a bad location is what it takes for this place to not be slammed at all times, then so be it. Your order is a bag of donuts (yes, a brown paper bag), and the turkey, cheddar, maple, and apple sandwich that we’re surprised they don’t have patented. While you wait for your order to come out, you can watch as the sugar donuts make their way down a conveyer belt, get dumped into hot oil, and fry right in front of you. It will be the best moment of your day. Until you eat them.
