The donuts are fresh and very good. Selection of types of donuts is limited. Furnishings are very basic.

Stopped here based solely on other reviews. It looks like a closed down business from the outside, but don't let that keep you away. Upon stepping inside, you are greeted with an atmosphere of a small donut shop that hasn't probably updated since it was opened in the late 1980's. Again, don't let that stop you. You'll more than likely... More

Jelly donut is one of the only donut shops in town . The donuts are prepared early in the morning so if you want a hot glazed go early . My favorite is the old fashioned and they are one of the best ive ever had. We also like the maple and chocolate bars . All there donuts are good... More

Jelly Donut is a must for anyone that appreciates fresh or day old donuts, croissants & muffins! Their Ham & Cheese croissant is on slam for breakfast on the go, but don't forget the napkins😊

After finishing my meal at Poppa's across the street I noticed this donut shop. Stopped in. It was late on a Friday night and there wasn't a huge selection to chose from. Not sure if that was cause of the time or if that's just how things are usually here. I got an old-fashioned donut and I had a feeling... More

The place is old, worn and difficult parking but the donuts are the closest I can get to Dunkin on the west coast in my area. Not as gooey sweet as Krispies, which is great.

Had a "world famous" apple fritter. It was too sweet and 2 of us couldn't eat a whole one. Hmmm, maybe the folks in Yucca Valley are a bigger sweet tooth than us Bay Area folks?

Fair donuts for sure, at restaurant prices though. I used to go there often, but don't anymore. Like most things these days prices a bit higher. Now I go to the Diabetes clinic a few doors down.

This little donut shop has a wonderful variety of sweets to select from and great coffee to help wash away the guilt.

My husband and I stopped for a quick donut on our way to Joshua Tree National Park. This is a very local, no frills donut shop in a strip mall. We came in on a Sunday afternoon and the only other patrons were two elderly gentleman. The employee was very friendly, the donuts tasty and it was cheap. Make sure... More
