Delicious donuts, huge selection! Enjoyed a maple bar with bacon bits and a fabulous cinnamon twist. Better choice than some nearby "name brand" choices.

Thanks to the reviews here I checked out Tyler's today. What a great little shop. This is a hole in the wall, no-nonsense, what you see is what you get kind of place. And what you get are GREAT donuts and desserts. We went simple tonight with sugar donut, coconut donut, chocolate with peanuts, maple bars and chocolate. We didn't... More

Tyler's Donuts hand make their pastry's daily! There is a small group of regulars that the nearby Starbuck's had NOT managed to chase away. Starbuck's also has not been able to put Tyler's out of business - YET!

Tyler's opens extremely early in the morning and closes late at night. The servers are fast and friendly. Tyler's donuts are fresh but sell out quickly. The coffee is surprisingly good here, too.

What's not to love, apple fritters, old fashions, pan dulce, great coffee plus you can indulge in a lottery ticket. There are tables inside and out if you wish to sit and enjoy. Friendly and helpful staff.

Fresh baked, or so they tasted. Lots of donuts, muffins, cinnamon rolls to choose from. Service was fast and very friendly. Sweet tooth satisfied.

We love to get donuts when we go to Cali. We stopped by here in the evening and the donuts were old and stale. The pricing was confusing and the guy behind the counter was rude. Far cry from the delicious donuts we had in San Francisco a couple months ago. Would not ever go back.

Okay, yes they have donuts or doughnuts, but they have they own little specialty. Sweet Cinnamon Rolls oozing with creamy white frosting flowing into the openings of the rolls like glaciers filling a valley. These are way better than what mom use to make and that is hard to do. Cinnabon is like eating cardboard compared to these delicious mountain... More
