After dropping $125 at The Cheese Store in Beverly Hills, I decided to go around the block and check out the new Frittelli's doughnut store on Canon, next to the Too-Cool-for-School hair salon, Guiseppe Franco. The doughnuts are good, but really just slightly better than your standard Winchells or Yum Yum. Their only edge is that they offer a couple of unusual flavors like lemon poppy seed, cranberry, peppermint and mocha.
The only one I enthusiastically finished was the crumb. Packed in a cute, sturdy, Tiffanyesque blue box, they would make a nice overpriced gift, like a box of Sprinkles cupcakes. If I lived in the area, and wouldn't mind packing on the pounds, I would go back. But I don't, so I won't. Good doughnuts, fast, friendly service, but nothing terribly special.
