Best Donuts: Trejo’s Coffee and Donuts

Whether it’s Easter, Valentine’s Day,  Superbowl with the L.A. Rams, or Cinco de Mayo, Trejo’s Coffee and Donuts celebrates everything and represents the passion and energy of its founder, actor and native badass Angeleno Danny Trejo.

Savor the Me Lucky Charms donut on St. Patrick’s Day (sky blue buttermilk glaze with Lucky Charms cereal) or the new Trejo Coneado (a donut cone dipped in cinnamon sugar and lined in chocolate, filled with soft serve of your choice.)

Much like the shop’s owner, the beauty of the donuts lies in their imperfection — what they might lack in sophisticated artistry, they make up for in spirit and taste. Football season means L.A. Rams blue and gold donuts customized with player numbers for the big game. Standards like the Low Rider with cinnamon sugar, margarita with lime zest and salt, and the dark chocolate abuelita are available year-round.

The first Trejo’s Tacos opened in 2016 along a busy stretch of La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles. Then came the  food truck, Trejo’s Cantinas in Hollywood, and Trejo’s Tacos at  LAX, University of Southern California and the Original Farmers Market. The donut shop opened in 2017 in Hollywood, rounding out his restaurant group which is planning to expand to Las Vegas, New York, Texas and Colorado. —Michele Stueven
