Positioned to snare weary travelers as they tumble down the steps from the elevated Q station, this modest doughnut shop and breakfast counter fries the best-glazed doughnut in town, and I'm including Krispy Kreme in that assessment. I recently ate three while waiting in a freezing car, and they even tasted good cold. Glazed doughnuts cost $4.25 for a baker's dozen, and there are allegedly 47 other varieties to choose from. As the clerk assembles your order, you can admire the autographed photo of Joe Franklin.
