Welcome to Original Ferrell’s

Best Donuts In Town!

A Santa Cruz Tradition For Over Three Decades

donuts
Family owned and operated by Michael Morse since 1976, Original Ferrell’s Santa Cruz is the destination of choice for both locals and visitors alike seeking fresh, quality donuts and more: such as great bagel sandwiches and made-to-order big and delicious sandwiches.
When most Santa Cruz locals think donuts, they think Original Ferrell’s, which is located at 17th Ave. and Capitola Road. Generations have come to enjoy the family tradition of bringing in the kids for sweet treats, juices, and their kid-pleasing hot chocolate. And with their newly expanded menu, there are many more reasons to enjoy Original Ferrell’s. You bet-cha!

Weekdays, the Santa Cruz store opens at 5 a.m and the Scotts Valley and Aptos stores at 6 a.m.
With these early-bird opening hours – where is the sun?! – Original Ferrell’s stores are a must-stop destination for a good first cup-o’-Joe and a good bite to eat. The Santa Cruz /Live Oak store is not exactly a tourist-oriented location. However, visitors from San Jose and San Francisco to Salinas to Carmel to Santa Barbara, some how find their way to the best-dern donut shop in town.

All-Natural Sandwiches

Served At A Donut Shop?
Original Ferrell’s Santa Cruz Breaks The Mode!

Who would have thunk it that you could get a really good sandwich at a donut shop?
Let alone, an all-natural turkey sandwich or an all-natural trip-tip sandwich from a donut shop? Owner Mike Morse, who has an extensive food background, decided to expand on his menu by offering
“really good sandwiches,” from morning until closing. With a tradition of offering quality donuts and pastries since 1976,
no way would Mike not provide the same high-quality with his made-to-order sandwiches
