I came here on a Tuesday morning, there was no one else in the shop which really surprised me. The guy working was super nice and patient as my 7yr old and I looked at all the crazy donut creations. I was looking for a family of five and ended up getting a Strawberry Fields, Marla, Rocky Road, Velvet &... More

I was on my own for a day before a conference started and wanted to get some quick breakfast. A little tired of the usual Starbucks, so I found this place on Google maps. It was only a couple of blocks from my hotel, so I walked over and was very glad I did. The names and combinations of ingredients... More

Order-taker mixed up the order completely, offered to make things right for an extra charge. That's not how it works, crazy person.

My first intro to Psycho Donuts was at a Sustainability Fair in San Jose! These donuts are , well to put it mildly, WILD!! It is truly like you let a bunch of kindergartners loose in a Hansel and Gretels witch kitchen and just let them create every imaginable sweet possible. And beleive me! There's apparently no limit to what... More

We went in here because my brother absolutely loves donuts. I wasn't expecting vegan options so it was a huge bonus. And let me tell you, they were honestly the best donuts I've ever had (vegan or otherwise). The place looks a little sketchy from the outside...and the inside... but you can't go wrong with the donuts. Just don't eat... More

I had to stop by because I wanted to see it for myself. It's a small, unassuming donut shop, located right next to a dry cleaner. It is humble, but it's well decorated and interesting to behold. The donuts are on the pricey side. I got a donut that cost $2.25, and it wasn't even one with an interesting name.... More

Living in a rural area, we had never experienced anything like this... couldn't imagine anything like this! We really enjoyed the maple and bacon donut and a Rocky road donut. The employees were extremely helpful and patiently answered all our questions. I'm glad that this place is close to our hotel. We'll be back!

Stopped in here for a late afternoon snack. They had a good selection of unusual donuts. The apricot fritter didn't taste like apricots at all. Theres a small selection of beers available as well (including PBR). A good place to take a break.
