A Great Donut Place and Bakery in Cardiff, CA

I am a bit of a foodie, as I probably have mentioned (and you may have gathered from some of the stuff I write about). I don't eat fast food, but I have a definite soft spot for desserts, especially chocolate. And good restaurants in general tend to appeal to me - dining out is a favorite activity, which I have tried to do as much as possible since arriving here almost 2 years ago (this April).

Regarding sweets, I discovered a great place in Cardiff (yes, those of you who know about it may laugh, but it was new for me, so I get to write about it!) on the advice of a good friend. And coincidentally, there was a great article in this past weekend's paper on the place.

Probably best known for its donuts, VG (people I know just refer to it as VG's), just off San Elijo and a block north of Chesterfield, has earned a notable reputation for its donuts, and other treats. Established back in 1966, it is known far and wide, and is a popular spot for residents to drop in for coffee and donuts - surfers, families, business folks, tourists and day trippers, campers from San Elijo, and so on.
We recently had a cake from VG's with raspberry filling and a white chocolate frosting that was simply divine. Good thing it is a few miles from my house in Carlsbad, or I would be there weekly, or more frequently.
If you haven't been there, make a trip it is absolutely worth it. If you have, you know what I mean. Here's to sweets.
