This place has led to my diet downfall on more occasions than I can count. I always say the donuts are for my grandkids -- but I "donut" know how to stop eating them once we open the box! I always appease my guilt by...More

We always make a point to stop at a Krispy Kreme when we’re in USA since we don’t have them back home. This location was typical and very easy to access for a quick stop if your driving to SAN Diego on the I-15. Since...More

When we accidentally drove by this Krispy Kreme location, we literally drove around to block to head back for a coffee and doughnut break. Appears this is the only location in San Diego, and we are delighted to have found it. The shop is bright,...More

Title says it all for me. Have been loyal ever since childhood and will remain so until I'm swept off my feet. I'm a simple doughnut guy, glazed. Sweet and melts in your mouth as if the mythological god of sweetness blessed it herself.

Krispy Kreme is great, wish the sports arena location was still open, used to go as a kid after Gulls/riptide games. Original glazed is the best by far (don't try other items, not merely as good). This location is decent, once I saw a guy...More

We stopped by for breakfast and bought a dozen doughnuts. They were fresh. It was fun watching the doughnuts being made. Store was clean, service was quick and friendly. The store was clean. Typical Krispy Kreme.
