Walking past this shop I only stopped to take a picture of the giant donuts. Went inside and was suggested a long glazed buttermilk doughnut, which was actually described as a deep fried pancake batter. It was still hot from the fryer and delicious.

Not bad but really not much better than your average grocery store. It does not seem to be very clean when you are in the shop. There were a lot of people there so it is popular.

Easily missed, this is a classic donut shop in the heart of Russia Hill. While you're not going to find gluten free or a wide variety of options, the donuts are fresh, cheap and delicious. Or go late night for the giant donut (fit for several friends sharing!). Great quick stop loved by locals and tourists alike and just a short walk from the similarly-minded Swan Oyster Depot

This is a little hole in the wall that is really lives up to the hype. The donuts are fresh, and there's quite a selection. Staff are really friendly and helpful. I would definitely return, and while it's not the best donut I've ever had, it's definitely up there.

We enjoyed a trip to Bob's on a Sunday evening during a recent tourist trip to SF. It's only a couple of blocks from the California Ave. cable car stop. Line was out the door, but that's because it's a small place and the register is near the front entrance. It moved quickly. Really enjoyed the crumb donuts, but all were very tasty. Very reasonably priced, too.
