In what could be the food story of the month, 7x7's Antonia Richmond hunts down the city's best glazed donut. While artisan donuts (did we really just type that?) with their long lines and high prices have their predictable appeal - like passengers who insist on boarding an crowded Bart train even though there's a less crowded one right behind, many a San Franciscan just wants to feel a part of something bigger than themselves, individuality and convenience be damned (e.g., food trucks, Dolores Park, cycling, Castro) - nothing can replace the simplicity and baseness of a glazed.

Richmond's top pick? Happy Donuts, of course, for how it's "puffy, fresh, not toothache-sweet, and literally dissolves in your mouth. " She also has honorable mentions for four lucky runners-up. Mmm.
