Good Mom & Pop Donut Place in San Diego?

Wherever we go, we always enjoy finding a good local mom & pop donut place to enjoy for breakfast maybe once or twice while we are there?

Any suggestions? Staying at Hilton San Diego Bayfront. Doesn't necessarily have to be near the hotel though, as we will have a car.

Thanks!

Sadly I must admit I am not a doughnut connoisseur. I've been to probably 2 doughnut shops in all of San Diego. I recommend Doughnut Haven on Robinson in Hillcrest.

When I did my undergrad at UCSD we always went on donut hunts. Sadly, as this was a number of years ago, many of those shops are no longer around.

Going on Yelp shows a whole slew of shops. Perhaps one of those will satisfy your donut urges.

Besides Donut Haven the only one I can think of is Donut Star on Washington in Hillcrest.

Rose Donuts near USD is also open 24 hrs, since they cater to the student crowd.
