You missed Donut Man near Los Angeles. Probably the best donuts ANYWHERE. Where else can you seasonally get fresh, giant strawberry or peach stuffed donuts? The best Boston Cream donuts ever, and an apple fritter that's out of this world.

We'll have to do an extended list. Any other great suggestions?
