Savoy Donuts
Ranked #3 of 7 Bakeries in Escondido
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 August 2017

Two unbiased donut tasters tried custard-filled, chocolate-iced donuts in 7 shops in Escondido, CA. Evaluations were based on 8 criteria:
1. Overall freshness
2. Oil penetration of dough
3. Dough taste
4. Amount of custard filling
5. Taste and texture of custard filling
6. Amount of chocolate icing
7. Taste and texture of chocolate icing
8. Size of donut
Criteria 3 and 8 contained three possible ranks; all others, two ranks, for possible total of 10 points.

Savoy Donuts at 1340 W. Valley Parkway received 10/10 points - the highest possible score.
Savoy's custard-filled donuts were big, fresh, large, plump and luscious, and the dough was lightly crispy outside and light and fragrant throughout inside. There was an abundance of custard filling and it had a good, rich taste and the proper consistency. The icing was thick and dark with a rich chocolately taste. We also tried an apple fritter, which was fresh and tender with plenty of tender juicy apple chunks. It was the best of about 4 places we tried.

If you like donuts and are ever in Escondido, you have to go to Savoy Donuts. The donuts are superb (and cheap), and the owners are supremely friendly. They even throw in a few free donut holes sometimes! While Peterson's Donut Corner receives all the "donut hype" in Escondido, these donuts are at least twice as good.

Savoy has their 'regular' crowd who are there for coffee and donuts every morning between 6 -8 A.M. But if you stop on your way to the office in the morning they have an excellent selection and a good price on donuts by the dozen.

We love their cinnamon rolls. For the holidays and we have a house full of family we get a large ox filled with cinnamon rolls. Excellent and helpful. We always order in advance to be sure we have them.
