Allbright's Donuts - Santa Cruz, CA

On a lazy day in Santa Cruz, CA, my friends and I were on a search to purchase some beach cruiser bicycles. We were directed to a shop called Cruiser King where the bikes were too expensive for our taste, but as we parked and walked we were drawn to this donut shop, Allbright’s Donuts. I asked the lady working how old the shop was and she said somewhere around 30 years. I’m telling you guys… Donut Shops are a strong and stable business, especially if you are of Asian decent. ;-)

Vibe of Shop: 4 Nadas
It had that classic 70’s diner vibe, which I like. I really like the seating arrangement.

Outside Appreance: 4 Nadas
I loved the corner location and the color choices. Very inviting.

Service: 2 Nadas
The lady wasn’t that friendly. I assumed it was because she had been there all night making donuts, as it was 2pm in the afternoon when we visited. She helped us, but didn’t go beyond the donuts. It was all business.
Taste of Glaze Donut: 4 ½ Nadas
I was very impressed with the donuts. They tasted fresh and even now, just thinking of them makes my mouth water.

Coffee: 2 ½ Nadas
The coffee tasted in between quality coffee and dirty water. Ha. But it was still drinkable. I’ve had worse.

Special: The size of the donuts were grand. If you’re on a diet, don’t come here…. Well… if you’re on a diet, don’t eat donuts.

Three cheers for Allbright's Donuts! Hip! Hip! Hip! The double U counter with original orange vinyl is definitely cool. I have a feeling this little corner shop is going to become the hot spot on the donut circuit.

Yummy sugar donuts, chocolate devil's food donuts, and donut holes. Quiet place to do sudoku puzzles. No AC power for laptops.
