Skip the gym, pour a cold glass of milk, and take a bite:

  • (fōnuts)

    <strong>Why:</strong> (fōnuts) has made the act of indulgence -- for those with dietary restrictions -- really exciting. Unfried, gluten-free and vegan donuts are available and as mouth-watering as something from Yum-Yum. <em>8104 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, California 90048 (323)592-3075 </em>

  • Bob's Coffee And Donuts

    <strong>Why: </strong>When HuffPost LA was researching this <em>Best of </em> list, everyone agreed that we had to include Bob's Coffee And Donuts. The LA classic in the Farmer's Market is without a doubt a must-have donut. <em>6333 W 3rd St # 450 Los Angeles, CA 90036 (323) 933-8929</em>

  • Stan's Donuts

    <strong>Why:</strong> Stan's Donuts is to donuts what Diddy Riese is to cookies: a Westwood staple. The corner shop has been serving up deliciousness for 47 years. Make sure to try both the custard puff and the peanut butter and banana filled puff (pictured here). <em>10948 Weyburn Avenue, Los Angeles, CA (310) 208-8660</em>

  • Randy's Donuts

    <strong>Why:</strong> Because sometimes you need an outstanding, late-night treat at a Los Angeles Landmark. <em>805 West Manchester Boulevard Inglewood, CA 90301 (310) 645-4707</em>

  • UMAMIcatessen

    <strong>Why:</strong> Dessert is just as important as the meal at Downtown LA's UMAMIcatessen. You must save room for tres leches and cajeta on a ceylon cinnamon cake donut, pictured here. <em>852 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90014 (213) 413-8626</em>

  • Scarpetta

    <strong>Why:</strong> <a href="http://gastronomyblog.com/" target="_hplink">The Gastronomer says:</a> "These sugar-coated, custard-filled doughnuts share the spotlight with Scarpetta's famous spaghetti every Sunday morning at brunch. Crafted by Chef Richard Ruskell, every ball of goodness gushes with cream and is encased by a fluffy and light dough." <em>225 N. Canon Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90210 (310) 860-7970</em>

  • Donut Man

    <strong>Why:</strong> When you think of seasonal cuisine, you donuts don't normally come to mind, unless you're talking The Donut Man in Glendora. The early spring through fall delicacy is basically a glazed donut on steroids filled with fresh, sweet strawberries. <em>915 E Rte 66 Glendora, CA 91740 (626) 335-9111</em>

  • Primo's Donuts

    <strong>Why: </strong>Not only has Primo's been around since 1956, it was also chosen by <em><a href="http://www.foodandwine.com/slideshows/americas-best-doughnuts/5" target="_hplink">Food & Wine</a></em> as one of the best donuts in America. <em>2918 Sawtelle Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90064 (310) 478-6930 </em>

  • The Donut Hole

    <strong>Why: </strong>The Donut Hole is just as much about tradition as it is about donuts. The local landmark is considered a good-luck charm for newlyweds to drive-thru after the wedding. <em>15300 Amar Road, La Puente, CA 91744 (626) 968-2912</em>

  • Animal

    <strong>Why:</strong> <a href="http://gastronomyblog.com/" target="_hplink">The Gastronomer says:</a> "The trio of poofed-out orbs are served hot from the fryer and drenched in a gooey caramel sauce. The doughnut's impossibly light texture, coupled with the sticky sweet sauce, is the most winning of combinations. Make these a menu mainstay, Vinny and Jon!" <em>435 North Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, CA (323) 782-9225 </em>
