Overall Shop rating: 5 Nadas
On this day, I was getting an oil change at a Firestone that was part of this large strip mall, and I thought to myself, “What should I do for the next hour?” Luckily, there was a well-placed heavenly oasis called Four Seasons Donuts that extended a friendly welcome.
Ever since I’ve started this donut blog I have been waiting for the day that a donut shop owner recognizes my dedication to their craft, and in return, hands me a free donut. Today, my dream was realized. The best part is that this shop was amazing as well. I’m not giving this shop high scores because of the complimentary apple fritter and free refill on coffee. They really do a great job in making donuts. I talked in length with the owner about the process of making donuts and how her glaze is so much better than others because it’s not too thick and not too sweet. It’s perfectly crafted to bring happiness to your taste buds.
Vibe of Shop: 5 Nadas
It had well planned seating, plenty of ordering options, and the owner was so friendly. As I sat there for 45 minutes waiting for my car, we chatted about life, donut-making, and religion. It was an amazing afternoon.Outside Appearance: 4 1/2 Nadas
Perfect located in a large strip mall, these guys know how to do donuts! They created a little outside patio eating area that was occupied by a rotation of 65-year-old men coming to break up the routine of the day with a donut, a cup of coffee, and old man comradery. I can’t wait until I’m 65 so I can join in the “old man conversations.”
Hours: 5am – 5pm-ish. Honestly, I forgot to take a picture so I could remember, but I do remember it opening really early and closing in the early evening. The owner said that she wanted to get home to her family. “Life is not all about working,” she told me.Service: 5 Nadas
She was a great help and a great conversationalist. I realized that many people came in knowing her by name.
Taste of Glaze Donut: 5 Nadas
Moist, fluffy, and the perfect light glaze made this the best glaze donut that I have found in Camarillo.
Blueberry Donut? Nope. Only blueberry filled croissants
Coffee: 4 Nadas
The coffee was good but it didn’t blow my mind. I’m waiting for that perfect blend that makes my donut filled mouth sing out loud.Special: They had a wonderful cinnamon-type donut that was glazed and frosted and looked amazingly scrumptious. I couldn’t bring myself to eat it though. After a glaze and the complimentary apple fritter, I was done.
One random thing was that people could redeem recycling there. As I sat there a few people walked in with receipts and the lady handed them cash. You can also play the Lotto there.
