    I grabbed one of those VG’s deals! Now I know what to try when we finally make it up there! Thanks!

    Dunkin Donuts has good french crullers (also, they HAVE french crullers), so I always request a stop when we visit T’s family out east. Although, I guess they’re in Vegas, too…

      The donuts didn’t stay too fresh beyond a day, so it’s best to get other stuff to use up the whole amount of the deal. I was in Boston for college and got very accustomed to a Dunkin Donuts on every other corner. I miss them. The last time I went to Vegas I got a whole dozen to bring home!

  2. haha – loved your last line and the reason for the window shot! i do those all the time! my car windows are so damn dirty!

      I intended to take a proper shot but then I was like … ehhhh, no. And there were so many people sitting outside it felt too awkward, hence lazy car shot! 🙂

  3. So glad you hit this place. I LOVE their donuts… the perfect start to a weekend morning!

  4. Ahhhh it’s the loaf and the rolls that add up the $$$, our little Leucadia Donut shot just up the road is usually out of donuts by 10am on a Sunday; when he’s sold out, he just hangs a “closed” sign and heads surfing I guess… next time in CbtS I’ll check out VG, thanks!

    Hi Noe – They do have some good donuts and bagels! My friend told me to try Peterson’s in Escondido, too. It’s on my mental list!

    Hi TA – VG makes donuts twice a day so they should have fresh donuts available all day long. And with the line I saw on Sunday morning they must make a ton of donuts per batch!
