Donut Wheel – Cupertino, CA

Overall Shop Rating: 4 NadasSome donut shops understand the importance of supply and demand. This shop is conveniently located in the Silicon Valley near some colleges. College students regularly need munchies and a place to study late into the night. Providing for their needs, Donut Wheel is open 24 hours serving donuts and coffee to those who must pull all-nighters to finish papers, or to those who just need a midnight snack.

Vibe of Shop: 4 ½ Nadas
Though there wasn’t much use of “donut pink” this shop had an amazing donut shop vibe. It was super comfortable like a throwback to the 70’s , complete with custom made signs, classic donut shop signs, and a large mounted deer head above the door. There was ample seating and nice booths to chill out in.

Outside Appearance: 3 Nadas

It was not located in a strip mall like most donut shops, but it was perfectly located on the corner with plenty of parking for all. This shop has been around since the 50’s so it has definitely passed the test of time.

Hours: 24 hours

Service: 3 Nadas
The Asian man working in the back wasn’t very friendly. When I couldn’t decide on what donut to taste he got a little impatient. I can understand his point of view, as he has hundreds of donuts to make though out the night. But, I do think friendliness builds a great business vibe. I guess if you’ve been open since the 50’s you can do whatever you want…Taste of Glaze Donut: 4 Nadas
Fluffy, with a good glaze, I thought the donut was a bit on the dry side.Blueberry Donut? No

Coffee: 3 Nadas
Classic donut shop coffee. I wasn’t blown away, but I didn’t throw up either.

Special: I love the deer head above the door, and I love the blunt, random signs.

Hey man, Donut Wheel's specialty are their cake donuts- thin outside, but slightly crisp. Really phenomenal. They don't have cinnamon/sugar cake, but their plain cake are great as are the choc frosted.
