All Star Donuts
BART Station:El Cerrito Plaza
Walk Time:2 minutes
All Star Donuts is a short, one-block walk from the El Cerrito Plaza BART Station. Donuts are served inside a warm and inviting setting.
Longtime customers Peter and Debbie compare this donut shot to the show “Cheers,” where everybody knows your name. “We come here every day to relax, enjoy a good cup of coffee and visit with other regulars.”
Recently remodeled, the interior is roomy and very accessible at street level and was designed with privacy in mind, so you can study, visit with friends or gather together for community meetings.
Racks of fresh, perfectly-rounded, raised-glazed donuts are the most popular item served here, but other items, such as custard-filled, maple or chocolate bars, will delight you.
At All Star Donuts, huge bear claws have paws (it is Cal Bear territory) and are filled with bite-sized pieces of gooey apples. Fans of cinnamon twists (my favorite) will find that these pastries are generously loaded with savory cinnamon.
Huge croissants are also on the menu and are served plain or filled with ham and cheese. English muffin and bagel sandwiches are made to order.
