A Donut Shop With a Croissant Surprise: Munchkins Donuts, Covina, California
The owners are celebrated for their warm nature, often adding an extra donut hole or mini croissant to their customer's orders.
They have built a reputation over the years for serving "delicious, hot, pillowy" donuts and some of the best croissants in the nation. Yelp Elite user Jamie D. said:
"Munchkins has some sort of magic to it. You walk in and you feel the warmth...not just the physical warmth of a donut shop that bakes and makes their stuff fresh, but also the welcoming warmth from the people that run and work at the place."
She is particularly fond of the jalapeno ham and cheese croissants, describing them as "super delicious! Served warm, the cheese on the inside is ooey gooey, and the jalapenos give it just the right amount of kick."
Yet the donuts should not be forgotten.
Munchkins' simple glazed donut is often described as "so light and fluffy, it's like eating a cloud."
While their chocolate-glazed yeast donut draws in fans for its "nice, slightly crisp exterior with a soft, moist interior…not too dense and not too airy," according to Yelp user Anson H.
