Earlier this month on National Donut Day, Yelp released its list of the Top 100 U.S. Donut Shops.
Santa Clara’s own Stan’s Donuts was ranked 8th. Kudos to the Mission City eatery.
Two other Bay Area donut shops also rank in the top 20.
The Jelly Donut in San Francisco was listed as 7th.
Milkbomb Ice Cream in San Francisco and Berkeley came in 20th. They sell donuts as well as frozen treats.
Mission City residents have been enjoying Stan’s Donuts for seven decades.
Stan’s survived the pandemic and even an erroneous Mercury News report in 2020 that it closed its doors. Oops.
The place is so popular you have to get there early for the best selection of donuts.
Last summer, KTVU featured Stan’s among Santa Clara’s local eateries on its popular Zip Trip show with Mayor Lisa Gillmor.
