Dad's Donut Shop & Bakery

318 Marine Ave. Newport Beach, CA 92662 | Newport Beach | 949-673-8686

Location Description:

This is where Balboa Island locals hang in the wee morning hours before work, munching on their apple fritters while talking about market swings and the goddamn liberals. The doughnuts are good, but the peppermint ice cream and Balboa Bars are outstanding. Stay away from the frozen bananas, unless you enjoy gnawing on a rock-hard piece of fruit.
