Time to fill up your tank and let your stomach hit empty: strawberry doughnuts are back at The Donut Man in Glendora. As the shop informed LAist, the locally-sourced (from Oxnard, if you have to know) strawberries will be topping their eponymous doughnut variety through July. And The Donut Man is open 24-hours a day, so a 2:00 a.m. deep-fried pastry run is still acceptable.

Need more reason to go? Jonathan Gold (re: The Goldster) pays tribute to "the first destination donut in Los Angeles" in a 2015 video for the L.A. Times. "Strawberries [doughnuts] are on the display, maybe, the longest, for 15 minutes," Jim Nakano, owner and founder of The Donut Man, told the Times. Which means, anytime you go, day or night, these delicious delicacies will be hot and fresh for you.

The Donut Man is located at 915 E. Route 66 in Glendora. (626) 335-9111
