sweetness in the round in {los angeles}…




A few weeks ago, I headed down over to Fonuts for a breakfast date with a friend to check out the newest sweet spot in LA. While the name may imply that these might be the skinny Hollywood version of doughnuts, Fonuts are actually pretty rich and tasty…the only difference is that they're baked instead of fried. Much like a tiny round cake or muffin, they're still a treat in themselves. They do offer gluten-free and vegan options, but they also have full-fat {my preference} flavors as well. My favorite was the chocolate hazelnut and chocolate banana…but I really need to get my hands on one of their maple bacon fonut which had sold out by the time I got there! — Joy

  1. I LOVE the typography of their bags! Wish they had a place like this in the midwest! EVERYTHING is full fat and fried here = ) (I live in Milwaukee… they had fried butter, fried beer and krispy kreme donut burgers at the Wisconsin State Fair this year… )

  2. Hi Lynn,
    I think the key is not to expect them to be low-fat, healthy doughnuts as the name might imply. If youre a cake or muffin fan, then youd be more likely to like them!

  3. This place looks fantastic! I just learned that I am allergic to dairy, and I have a gluten “sensitivity”, so I have been trying to find places where I can still indulge in my favorite treats without making myself sick. I am going to check this place out and promptly buy one of their gluten free, vegan Lemon fonuts!
