Best Doughnut Shop 

Al's Donuts

Al sold the place ten years ago to husband and wife Ty Ea and Sara Thong, who had worked there for a decade. He's Chinese-Cambodian, she's Cambodian, and as children they were both prisoners in Pol Pot's despotic camps. Ty is 5 feet 9 inches, Sara 5 feet 2. Both are giants. Ty makes the donuts early in the morning. When Sara opens the doors at 5:30 customers are already waiting to select from trays laden with old fashioned cake and raised donuts, plain or glazed, or topped with chocolate or sprinkles, crullers. They also sell donut holes, cinnamon rolls, twists and Boston creams with chocolate or maple filling — all as sweet as Sara's smile. It's a clean, tidy place with tables to sit and enjoy the morning with the fresh donuts.
