Stardust Donut Shop
Stardust Donut Shop's small selection of doughnuts changes daily based on the whims of the owners, who bake everything from scratch. The typical roster includes old-fashioned, glazed, and chocolate-frosted donuts, plus buttermilk twists and peanut-topped cinnamon rolls. Be sure to get here early because when the doughnuts run out, the shop closes its walk-up window -- no matter the time of day.
This Imperial Beach shop has been slinging out hot pastries for more than 50 years and its original sea salt-crusted signage reflects its staying power in the community. The menu hasn’t changed much either, but that’s what makes this shop so beloved. Choose between classic glazed, chocolate iced, German chocolate, peanut butter, and raspberry-filled donuts made by hand daily.
