Primo’s Donuts Reviews
I have been here 2 times. Not a fan of their pricing. Their donuts seem to be overpriced and are not anything special except they are thicker than a usual donut size. Same with their ham and cheese croissant which has the same quality as other donut shops. Just not an affordable place to frequently visit since you can buy the same stuff on other places that probably taste better and are half the price. I don’t mind paying a lot but I prefer getting my money’s worth.
They have good parking space in the morning.
I felt like driving around today at a leisurely Sunday pace. Primo’s was on my radar so I found my way over there. These are legacy donuts (1956) and are excellent. It is quite far for me to get to their locations but I am glad I stopped by at least once.
Primo’s is the real deal. The buttermilk bars ignite your palette. The pillowy interior contrasts the crispy exterior. They also exclusively serve Stumptown coffee for a perfect pairing. We met Primo and loved his story of opening the shop. Easy parking. Payment is easy with Apple Pay. Line always moves quickly.
A testament to good food served by good people. They even served us fresh warm donuts just because they came up right then!
Yes the hype lives up to it.
Buttermilk donut is by far the best donut I’ve ever had and clearly why people line up at opening for this.
Cake donuts are heavy but filled with flavor.
Guava filled donut is slightly over sweet but the dough balances that nicely.
Secret here is definitely the coffee. Crazy good coffee and would not suspect it.
Primo’s newest location is at the old Stan’s Donuts in Westwood on Weyburn with donuts currently coming out of the Sawtelle kitchen, and an extended menu that includes the BEST espresso and espresso drinks. This location also has indoor and outdoor seating.
The (cake-type, donuts are always very good, but catch them as they come out of the kitchen and you cannot stop eating them. Primo’s cake donuts are made with a sweetened dough leavened by way of baking powder, and extruded into oil to cook. It’s firm, often with a slightly crunchy exterior and a soft, cake-like interior. There is none of the yeast-like taste of donuts made with yeast and cut before frying.
We look forward to their extensive, fun, holiday promos for us and gifts!
Is that right?
I feel like we got double charged.
We got 3 of those “butterfly cinnamon rolls”, one of the cinnamon rolls with chocolate on top, 1 jelly, 1 chocolate (classic circle), 1 glazed (classic circle), 6 glazed donut holes, 5 cinnamon sugar donut hole, 4 chocolate top donut holes.
We were in a rush and didn’t stare at the price list, but even if the cinnamon rolls were “premium” at let’s say $5 each and the jelly filled also $5… (Which seems overpriced)
$43.55 seems more than excessive for that, No?
And if that is the correct price, then that is definitely way over priced for the donuts, which were good, but not “boutique gourmet” in taste, quality, or presentation like say Sidecar donuts.
I went here because I saw a food video that raved about the buttermilk donuts. We went around noon to get donuts and there were only a few buttermilk left, understandably. I got one and a few other types of donuts. I couldn’t wait to heat it up at home and eat it. So I ate it cold. It was still good but I wish I would have heated it up. It probably would have been 100x better. My suggestion: go for the buttermilk only if you are just going to see what the rave is about and if they are cold wait to eat them after you’ve warmed it up (or ask if they have a microwave if you can’t wait lol)
Has become pretty average. Prices have gone up to almost Sidecar levels. On a Saturday morning they’re sold out of most donuts… at 9:15am!!!! Why are you even open then? Time to find something new. Shame really, loved it before.
Before going to Primos’s Donuts I looked at the reviews and I was skeptical of the high rating of 5 stars, it is true.
Crisp, flackery, dense, full of flavors. The buttermilk was magnificent and will go soon because I want to try the Custard, it had already finished everything and it was only 11:00 in the Morning. I can imagine these Donuts with a very hot coffee, before work, there is no way to go wrong. I recommend it!
