Nestled amongst the high end boutiques and Italian gelato shops in the Westfield Century City lies Randy’s Donuts. Famous for their original Inglewood location with the iconic giant donut on the rooftop, Randy’s Donuts chose the glamorous redone mall to open their second location.
It is the best bargain/bang-for-your-buck in the mall. All you need is $1.25 to score one of Randy’s classic donuts – even a buck will nab you a donut hole, with some change leftover.
Their most expensive donut tops out at $3 (which by comparison, will only get you one teeny tiny macaron over at ‘Lette Macarons).
In keeping up with the latest donut fads, Randy’s Donuts has added more outrageous variations like Smores, raised with cereal (aka Fruity Pebbles) and raised with Nutella. If you like funnel cakes, there’s even one that tastes just like it (minus the fair).
It’s easy to get distracted by the flashier variations, but it’s the classics that best demonstrate why Randy’s has been in business for over 6o years. The standard raised with glaze is everything a donut should be – fresh, light and not too sweet.
While others are lining up for the privilege of handing over $5-6 for a scoop of gelato, for a couple of dollars, you can bite into part of LA history.
