A few days ago I had to drive over the hill to the Westside for a work meeting. Since I was already out that way, I figured that I’d swing by DK’s Donuts in Santa Monica & pick-up some sweet treats for my family. I had heard from folks that DK’s does a version of a cronut that is to die for!! I’ve wanted to try a cronut ever since I first heard about it last summer. What is a cronut you ask? It is a croissant and donut hybrid.
DK’s Donuts is a tiny shop in a little strip mall located on Santa Monica Blvd.
This is what you see when you first enter (swoon)!
I knew immediately that I wanted to get a couple of DK’s Double Decker O-Nuts. But what flavor? There are so many to choose from: Strawberries N’ Cream, Cookies N’ Cream, Green Tea, Lemon…the list goes on & on. I finally settled on the special house cream flavor & also an ube flavored one. They are $3.95 each.
I also bought an assortment of the smaller O-Nuts in various flavors: Nutella, glazed with special house cream, cinnamon dusted & chocolate covered with cream. These run for $2 a pop.
A couple of regular donuts made their way into my box – a blueberry flavored donut & also an ube donut.
The shop sells sandwiches, bagels, smoothies & cold pressed juices. There is also a huge coffee bar & a few small yellow tables. When I was there, they had a few patrons sitting at the tables, but mostly people bought their items & left.
I made my way back to the Valley & later that night my family happily dined on these donuts for dessert. The Double Decker O-Nuts are big enough to share. I recommend getting multiple flavors, cutting them in half & sharing so that you can sample each flavor.
The texture of the O-Nuts are flaky & light, similar to a croissant, but they have a sweetness to it like a donut. My daughter LOVED the Nutella O-Nut the best. I liked the cream one & my hubby liked it ALL! 😉
Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. I happily paid for my box of sweet treats & I’ll do it again the next time I’m in this area! 🙂
