Rose Donuts – San Diego, CA

Overall Shop rating 4 ½ Nadas
Shoes and shoelaces go together as donuts with friends.

Vibe of Shop: 5 Nadas
It felt like home. The atmosphere was welcoming and familiar. It was vintage, yet clean. Full, yet not crowded. I liked the wooden swivel seats.

Outside Appearance: 4 ½ Nadas
Conveniently located on the roadside corner of a strip mall, the sign was simple and inviting, and the windows were tastefully painted with advertisements of items served in the store.

Hours: Not 24 Hours

Service: 5 Nadas
The older Asian woman was like a kind, friendly aunty. She had such a warm smile and could really push a donut sale.

Taste of Glaze Donut: 5 Nadas
Soft, fluffy, moist, and perfectly glazed. I couldn’t ask for more.

Blueberry Donut? No. ☹

Coffee: 3 Nadas
The coffee was just average. It wasn’t something I would use in the National Barista Competition, but it wasn’t bad either.
Note the massive chocolate donut on the bottom shelf!

Special: They served submarine sandwiches in this shop, which is located right across the parking lot from a submarine sandwich shop. I thought that was very bold and brave. They also served Orange Bang! Orange Bang is a must if you make it to the San Diego area. It is like having little orange fairies dancing on your tongue.
