The donuts are (apparently, haven't had them) a little bigger than donut holes and cheaper than the average fancy food at $.50-$1.00.

Donut Savant won "Best Gourmet Donuts" in the East Bay Express "best of" 2013. In 2015 they received the "Best Variation on a Cronut" Award.

As of February, 2014, Donut Savant now sells cronuts (a donut/crossant combo that is so popular at a New York bakery that some people wait in line for TWO hours to get one before they sell out). It appears that Donut Savant is calling them "crōn’t's" (which rhymes with "don't", maybe because the New York bakery has trademarked cronut?
