Danny Trejo is ready to make Krispy Kreme and any other Los Angeles-based donut business shake in their glazed-covered boots with his new food venture: Trejo's Coffee & Donuts.
Trejo's Coffee & Donuts made its debut on Wednesday, May 17, and it immediately SOLD OUT. The 73-year-old took to his Instagram to post a celebratory photo with a caption that read, "Opening day sells out." It seems to be a trend because for the third day in a row people have waited in a long line and his donuts have sold out before 10 am.
People really, really love donuts... and Trejo.
The hype is real and makes sense, as the donuts come with flavors like tequila-lime, abuelita hot chocolate, and nachos — yes, nachos. The cheapest donut starts at $1.75 and goes up to $4, and churros are $5. His coffee ranges from $2.75 - $5 and his non-coffee drinks like horchata and agua fresca start anywhere from $3 - $9.
Here's everything we've found on the mouth-watering menu so far:
It's a raised donut with tequila, lime, and salt. Gives happy hour a whole new meaning when it starts at 7 am.
Banana cake donuts (vegan)
Even vegans get to indulge in this banana-and-almond-milk perfection.
If pineapple and cinnamon are wrong, we don't want to be right.
Peanut butter donuts
The peanut butter donut is topped off with chocolate crumbles and salt, and we're hoping it's as magical as it sounds.
The menu describes it as a "raised donut with basic glaze" and it's proof that you can never go wrong with a classic.
Azul cake donuts
Blueberry buttermilk cake + blueberry + cream glaze + lemon = what summer diet?!
Three amigos donuts
SOS: IT'S A TRES LECHES DONUT, OMG!
Maple pig donuts
You get the perfect balance of sweet and savory with this maple syrup, vanilla brown sugar, and crispy bacon concoction.
This is what the future is all about, y'all!
Piñata cake donuts
You see that glorious sprinkle-topped donut in the middle? It's a buttermilk cake with cream glaze and it's the stuff dreams are made of.
Low rider donuts
The name alone has us sold on this cinnamon and sugar bad boy.
Chocolate crumb donuts
This one isn't on his website's official menu, but we did spot this dark chocolate number on the shop's official Facebook account.
Chocolate fiends, start your engines!
Cinnamon crumb donuts
There's also a cinnamon version that looks delectable. Shove this down our throats, stat.
Yes, the name on this one has us cackling. Nothing fancy, just a fluffy donut with some powdered sugar on top.
If your friends don't like donut holes, you can't trust them.
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT.
After searching through the Instagram #trejosdonuts hashtag, the shop's geo-location on IG, its Facebook page, and the company's personal website, we realized that we haven't seen pics of some other goodies that were noted on the website; we did look at the official IG and Twitter but it's crickets on there...for now.
Personally we're waiting for photos of the dulce de leche, horchata, el diablo cake, and for Machete to make an appearance sometime soon.
The shop is located at 6785 Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood on the corner of Highland Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard.
It looks like us non-Californians are going to have to book a trip to the sunny west really soon to try them out for ourselves!
