THE BEST DONUT SHOPS IN LA
Zelda's Corner sandwich shop with the striped awning is just around the corner from always-kooky Venice Beach, which is mayhem in summer, but worth braving not just for its superlative sandwiches (Mr. Electric FTW!), but also its mini donuts. Fried to order, the bite-sized bombs can be glazed (pro-tip: go with maple bacon, which is topped with the same rich, fatty bacon used in their sandwiches) or dusted with cinnamon sugar (making them kind of like churros in donut form).

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA’S
'Hi Greg!' shouts Edward Klevens, the new chef/owner of Zelda’s Corner. The sandwich shop at the corner of Westminster Avenue and Speedway is probably best known for its cinnamon-sprinkled mini donuts, but Greg comes in about once a week for a cup of chili and bread.
