Glad we found this place while in San Diego. It is a bit pricey, but for a one time stop for dessert, very good.

We had nine items including the cinnamon roll, maple bacon fritter, and a couple specialty donuts (Reese’s peanut butter cup, gummy bear, and maple bacon stick). All were very good, but the apple fritter and old fashioned blueberry were superb.

Worth the trip.

Life is worth sweets. Although eating a donut after a vigorous workout is counterproductive, Donut Star is worth it. Hey, I’ll do an extra mile tomorrow.

I love traditional donuts that are soft and moist in the inside and sweet to cure a one time craving. Donut Star even has fancy-fied donuts for those who need to have flair. My favorite is the original buttermilk, glaze twist and cinnamon roll. Yes, my donut taste is basic. But there is no oily residue or pastry sticking to the roof. These are my reasons I would recommend Donut Star:
1. Inexpensive
2. Donuts are fresh from am to late evening
3. Local business that serves with a neighborly spirit

Move over Oreo, ice cold milk now has a new BFF.

Star Donuts is the only traditional donut shop I’ve found in the Mission Hills/Hillcrest area. In the land of high-rent it is a treasure that needs to be supported.
One note, Star: your cake donuts are either under cooked or the oil isn’t hot enough to get a slightly crisp surface that would bring you to 5 stars.

It is overpriced!
A cinnamon roll was $3.50 then bc it has crumbs that was another .25 and then if you try and use a debit card they charge .75
So 1 cinnamon roll, if I bought it with a card was going to be $4.50!!!???
I took out all my change and paid the $3.75.
I couldn’t disappoint my son, but I would have left otherwise.

The Donut Star is a cute little spot. They have their own private parking lot and a couple of tables inside. They offer donuts, breakfast, sandwiches, coffee and more. They have a variety of different flavored donuts. There’s something for everyone!

The price is not bad, I think it’s the standard price for donuts. The older man that works at the front was really nice and quite talkative. When I walked in it was as if I’ve known him for a long time! Very cool.

The donuts tasted so fresh! Soft and moist you can easily eat two or three of them. Of course my go to flavor is always chocolate or maple but you can’t go wrong with a old fashioned donut! I also had one of their taro coconut donut, those two go together well. Loved it. You might ask di I try them all? Oh yes, I’m not afraid to try ‘em all!

Can’t wait til the Next time I come to San Diego! This sure will be one of my stops!!!

Donut Star has the best donuts in San Diego! The Apple Fritter with Bacon, and Chocolate Buttermilk are off the charts!! Super nice folks as well.

This was my first time at Donut Star and I had a good experience. You can see the donuts we got in the picture. I feel like the service was pretty good. The donuts tasted fresh. There was a large variety of donuts to choose from which is always a plus. The chocolate bar was bland tasting, there needed to be more frosting and flavor. My wife also mentioned how she would have liked more icing on the glaze donut, but to me it was fine. My favorite was probably the Oreo one. It was delicious. If you want a wide variety of fresh tasting donuts definitely come here.

I have been coming to Donut St t for years. Absolutely The BEST Donuts in San Diego. Trust Me On this one. You’ll never be disappointed here. I’ve drove more miles than you think for my favorite and always Fresh Donuts! I always enjoy quality and have no problem doing what it takes. Thank you Kim the owner and the other ones who assist you. You like wonderful Donuts??
They are centrally located in Hillcrest and just a few minutes from downtown San Diego.

See you next time Kim!

Would’ve gave 5 stars but the donuts here cost twice as much as other donut shops.


Great family-run neighborhood donut shop with affordable prices and a variety of breakfast sandwiches/drinks.
