Better get here early if you want a choice. When they run out (and that's quickly), a line forms inside and they fill orders as the donuts come out of the fryer-literally. They are like no other. Giant, greasy, gooey goodness. Exquisite! Probably not good for you but they taste so good. Get a cup of coffee from your favorite... More

I've lived in Santa Clara for 35 years and our go to place for doughnuts, especially glazed, is Stan's Donuts. They make them right in the front window of the shop. If you want to be sure to get your fill, order them the day before. They really go fast!

Hands down the best glazed donuts we've ever had. Better than Krispy Kreme. Very hard to stop at just one. Focus only on the glazed, save your calories. They close at 4:00 so make sure to get there before!

I've been going to Stan's since I was a child. To this day they are the only donuts that taste good to me. When I try any other I can always taste the oil they were fried in, but never at Stan's. They are always perfect.

Always a hit. First stop for visiting friends and family who have moved away from the area. KrispyKreme can't even *begin* to compare. Stan's donuts are light and fluffy and literally melt in your mouth. Highly recommended.

When was the last time you have donuts that are freshly made, when you wait in line, it reminds you of your childhood that sweet and savory smell? When you take a bite, fluffy, maybe still a little bit warm (if you order popular flavors that were just made!) it's always such a great pleasure to visit a locally owned... More

I have lived in the City of Santa Clara for 31 years and moved to San Jose not too long ago. Recently, we have cravings for donuts and tried several of them in my vicinity and none of them is comparable to the taste of Stan's donuts. Stan has the freshest and best donuts around.

Nothing fancy, but the best donuts ever! You have to try them if you like a tasty donut, if you get to Santa Clara, stop in

Fresh donuts with a family friendly feel. Great donuts puts like grandma used to make. Don't miss this Santa Clara Staple when visiting.

You don't go here for the atmosphere, I have taken these donuts to an event, and have people say I don't eat donuts... and I say they are Stan's and they always eat them... makes me smile every time.
