Good, old fashioned style donuts conveniently located right downtown. They open and close early so don't plan to stop here in the afternoon. Friendly employees.

I stopped in on a Tuesday morning. I bought the Tuesday special- a dozen for $5. We got a variety(crullers, frosted w/sprinkles, coconut, cinnamon crunch). The cinnamon crunch was amazing. We will be back!

Red's is a fixture in the Monterey/Seaside area. It has served good, fresh donuts for more years even while going through changes in ownership. Lots of locals there everyday. Parking a little tough but don't pass it by ... just don't tell your doctor.

I don't even like donuts, but this place has made a believer out of me. I can't go more than a few days without a fresh donut from Reds.

My husband wanted to sample a donut here while we waited for Rosine's to open, and we were impressed. Hot, fresh glazed donut, soft and tasty. I'd definitely recommend.

Great donuts, cheap prices, and great service! Donuts are less than a dollar and fresh every day. Thanks for the great service
