The Great San Francisco Donut Debate That Wasn't

Posted By on Thu, Nov 8, 2007 at 8:59 PM


That donuts taste really good is a fact beyond dispute, but everything else is up for grabs. This is especially true in San Francisco, a city packed full of both indistinct donut shops and culinary claim-stakers. Bob's Donuts on Polk is oft-cited as the granddaddy of San Francisco donuts, but Gridskipper leads us to a handful of other out-of-the-way donut houses acclaimed for their particular renditions of the classics.

But let's not complicate things too much: we're still talking about dough fried in animal fat and submerged in liquid sugar, and really, what doesn't sound good about that? As Gridskipper points out, though, do yourself a favor and get coffee somewhere else.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
