Earl's Donuts

20429 Devonshire Street, Chatsworth, CA - (818) 341-2869
Featured here on Roadfood before its inclusion on key “Top Donut” lists from other food websites, Earl’s has been quietly crafting beautiful donuts for many years from its humble strip-mall location in the Valley. The airiness and lilting sweetness of Earl’s raised donuts are precedent-setting among hundreds of area donutmakers, and their cake varieties have the perfect balance of crunchy crust and soft insides. Buy a box, and the counterperson always gives you extra, which keeps us coming back.

This baker's dozen hardly made it out of the store before two donuts were devoured.

This lowly crumb donut has a surprisingly crunchy topping that hides the soft, sugared cake inside.

Earl's is a very popular place.  When we stopped in on a Thursday morning, a local car cruise club was enjoying their weekly meeting.
