Don't order sandwiches here. They are over priced, small and very salty. My sandwich cost more than a straight deli breakfast sandwich for half the size. Stick to donuts please.
I am happy they did not close. They still had my favorite donut and the sales person got me more. I will go back for more each week before the covid 19. It is worth it to ride my bike 17 miles each way.
5 star apple fritters!
The coffee is wonderful!
Love it when the sweet lady says "And then" I say, let me get an old fashion chocolate donut. Sweet lady says "And then" LOL it reminds me when I watched Dude, where's my car?hahaha
Cheapest doughnuts in the East bay! Good for what you pay, working class food.
I work in the area and my coworkers get donuts from this shop all the time. I know they are always delicious and have such variety. However this week was the first time I visited and I have definitely found my go to donut shop now! I ordered 3 dozen donuts and 2 dozen donut holes. The shopkeeper asked what the occasion was and I said I just wanted to bring some donuts to work to share some sweetness with my coworkers because we have been especially stressed out all week about Coronavirus (we are a travel company). Next thing I know, she bags up a bunch more donuts and tells me it's on her. I was so touched with such kindness! The day ended up having more stressful moments but that kind act kept my heart warm.
Happy Donuts shop are mostly family owned and operated selling old-school classic donut. You won't get stuff like cronut or anything trending maple glaze bacon bit is as close as you'll get. This particular shop is pretty funny whenever I go the lady is yelling at the man I assume her husband. I don't know what they speak or what was said, but it sounds like cambodian, laos, or thai. I mean what did he do prior to me coming in?

I mean what did he do prior to me coming in? The place looks and feel dated like early late 80s with few tables and display case. They're known to sell some of the freshest donut in the area cinnamon rolls are nearly as big as my face. I got a chocolate custard bar before going next to door Dollar Tree. Being that late of day it still taste fresh and good icing didn't show any crack and custard was smooth, but filling wasn't filled from end to end taste like big box restaurant warehouse type comes in plastic bag just snip with scissors to suit your size. Good place for a break if you work nearby don't expect a perfect seating complete with television or WiFi. They earn solid 4 star for being a true classic donut shop and not trend chasing. #northwestberkeley #datedshop #rearparkinglot #offsanpabloave #bustop #someseating #familyowned #no-frills #old-schoolambience #classictraditionaldonut #muffin #breakfast #lunch #bakersdozen #kiddoflavor #sketchyarea #loitering #panhandling
Favorite donut place good coffee great fresh donuts reasonable prices still friendly staff
Not much on aesthetics (the building that is), but wonderful people and service and very tasty happy donuts. I especially like that the very nice lady working the counter had her degree in donuts (Donut Philosophy, Ph.D., of course). They really know donuts ?
Doughnuts are excellent; not too much frosting and, very, fresh. Service is great and, friendly.
They charge to much for basic donuts
Excellent selection, great service
