Nestled in the heart of Westwood, California on the corner of Broxton and Weyburn, Stan's Donut's has been a fixture in Westwood since 1963. Stan Berman found his perfect location catty corner from the famous Westwood Village Theater. He is a third generation baker and he has perfected the donut.
A cut above the bar, Stan puts his own twist on donuts. Besides your standard glazed, raised and filled, Stan invented his iconic and my favorite, Peanut Butter and Banana Donuts and his Peanut Butter and Chocolate Donuts (named the Huell Howser). Stan told me they came about when one of his customers asked him if he could make her a donut with peanut butter inside of it. I thank her and I'm sure Stan does as well.
In fact, many of Stan’s donuts are named after famous people including the late, famed UCLA basketball coach, John Wooden. (Mr. Wooden liked the blueberry cake donuts). They are so famous that Stan ships his donuts anywhere in the United States. Call or email him and he immediately boxes your order and walks them to the local FedEx.
