Finally, Bob’s Donuts is expanding outside of San Francisco
There are few better ways to end a successful night of bar crawling than with an impromptu road trip Bob’s Donuts — a 62-year-old fried dough institution that holds a special place in the heart of any San Franciscan. Now, for the first time, the famous donut shop is opening two new locations outside of San Francisco.
You’d be hard-pressed to think of a more famous donut shop in the Bay Area than Bob’s Donuts (excluding chains, mind you). For more than six decades, the family-owned business has served thousands of donuts – some of which are the size of a human head – to a wide variety of customers every day. Bob’s Donuts’ “usual suspects,” which they describe as their everyday offerings, include staple favorites like apple fritters, brownie donuts, and more; anyone who frequents either of the two Bob’s Donuts locations in San Francisco can attest that you can never go wrong with the maple or glazed donuts.
Well, now San Jose locals are going to taste these Bay Area folklore donuts sometime in 2023. But even sooner than that: Mill Valley residents are in for a new location from the beloved donut shop sometime next month at 252 Almont Blvd., occupying the space that was once a bamboo hut.
As first reported by the Mercury News, the new stores will not be open 24 hours a day like the donut’s original location at 1621 Polk St. The posted hours will be 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.; however, the store may extend its evening hours to 9 p.m. in the future, depending on the popularity of each location.
These stores have a more modern design – a departure from the nostalgic, no-frills decor that was the original Bob’s Donuts location. But while that familiar aesthetic won’t be replicated, in tandem will be the original donut recipes and toppings that earned Bob’s Donuts the cult following that will undoubtedly follow the new stores.
// Bob’s Donuts currently has two locations in San Francisco, the original at 1621 Polk Street and 601 Baker Street; for a complete list of donuts and brownies served by Bob’s Donuts, including information on the very clever “doughnut challenge,” visit bobsdonutssf.com.
