Continuing with my exploration of donut shops in San Diego, when I had lunch with CC last month, we stopped by San Diego’s Finest Donuts.
The poor sign is a little worse for wear. CC chose this place because she heard they had cronuts. I took a look at their Facebook page and they show really gorgeous cronut photos, some of the prettiest I’ve seen in San Diego.
When we went in, there were no cronuts on display. We also saw the regular display of donuts.
We inquired about the cronuts and were met with some very unhelpful responses. We asked if they made cronuts, and the employee replied they do. We asked if they had them today, she said no. We asked when they do have them, can they be ordered, is it in the morning, etc, and she shrugged and answered along the lines of “Sometimes we have them. When they come in and feel like making it, then we have it.” Okay…
Since we were already there, I got a few to-go.
My haul: glazed twist, glazed old fashioned and glazed buttermilk bar. I know, so many glazed ones, but I love glazed donuts.
These were all decent, but not much of a deal ($.85 each), and given the attitude of the employee and the distance, I doubt I’ll be back often.
Here’s a shot of CC’s picks: cruller and chocolate old fashioned

Update: I received an email from the owner and the cronuts are now available every Friday morning starting at 9am. You can also visit their Facebook page for the latest on the flavors available.
