L.A.'s Best Dozen (Photos) of Donuts

According to the powers that be, National Donut Day is the first Friday of every June. Which is ... checking the calendar here for a moment ... oh, wow. It's tomorrow! What joy! But that "national holiday" stuff is more for everyone else. Here in L.A., as evidenced by the abundance of donut shops on every street corner from Hollywood to Echo Park to Santa Monica -- and yet, sigh, still no Dunkin' Donuts -- we love our sugar-infused fried dough. So to celebrate our national day of donut reckoning, here's the best-looking dozen we can find.
