Originally offering donuts for special events, the concept for Hook & Press Donuts was conceived in 2014 by John Burnett, a former banker turned passionate baker. A long time resident of Santa Barbara, he was disappointed with the lack of exceptional donuts available locally. Hook & Press opened its debut location in October 2018 inside the Mosaic Locale in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, positioning itself to be the most exciting and innovative donut shop on the Central Coast.
Beginning with a foundation of fresh, high-quality, whole ingredients, nearly every component of our donuts are made in house from scratch, from the fruit glazes to the marshmallow fluff to the streusel and pie crust crumbles.
We expertly craft our rotating menu to highlight the best flavors of the season, showcasing local ingredients and supporting local farmers and purveyors as much as possible. You will always find something new and delicious happening at Hook & Press Donuts.
