Rollo’s is a block away from the house my mom grew up in. I don’t know how old it is, but it’s been there longer than I’ve been around. That neighborhood looks almost exactly as I remember it looking 20 years ago. I like that. They make blueberry donuts better than any place I’ve found.

I don’t think I’ve tasted a better donut than those made at Stan’s. Aside from the top-notch donut quality, the shop itself is beautiful – it looks like an old-fashioned diner that hasn’t renovated or updated anything since 1983. There’s a photo of the guy from Smashmouth on the wall, and I don’t know why. Unfortunately, the woman inside said I couldn’t take any pictures of the inside of the shop.

O’Henry’s is about half a mile from where I grew up. It’s located right across from what used to be a huge IBM plant (a space now occupied by a huge Hitachi plant and a half-assed strip mall). Everbody I grew up with would agree this is the best donut shop around. O’Henry’s has the best glazed donuts around, which taste blissful if you get them early in the morning (6am-7am).

The donuts at Donut Wheel are always excellent, but the best thing about this place is that it’s open 24 hours, and is relatively safe. Most other 24-hour joints are in sketchy neighborhoods. I like to get a buttermilk donut and a cup of coffee, then paint all night long on one of their wobbly tables. Some of the best painting sessions I can remember have been at the Wheel.

Manley’s has good donuts, the couple that run the shop are real nice, it’s open until mid-afternoon, and it’s very low key. You can get a crumb donut, a cup of coffee, then sit and let your mind clear on a Sunday morning if you wanted. It’s also soothing to watch all of the old people come in, read their newspaper, and grumble to themselves.

His mixed media and collage masterpieces combine traditional and classic images with some twisted humor and caustic wit. He received his B.F.A. in animation from the California Institute Of Arts and studied journalism at University of Southern California. Eric Yahnker lives and work in Los Angeles, California.
