Our favorite place to get Chanuka donuts is Gobo's, but when I googled to get their contact info, it says that they're permanently closed, but I see their website is still up.

Does anyone in BP know what the story is with Gobo's, if they're still open or not? And if not, anywhere else that has donuts like theirs?

Even last year, their donuts were not the same - they had changed managements/ownership
They used to have the recipe from The Donut Man
Ohhhhh how I miss those donuts
Does anyone else miss the coziest shop on 13 ave, The Donut Man??

Do they also sell the same assortment of donuts that Gobo's had? And if not, is there anywhere else in BP or Flatbush that has a diverse mix of exceptional donut for Chanuka?

Same owner as what store? Donut Man?
Owner is Mr. Gombo?
Or owner is Fialkoff's who bought Gobo's before they closed?

It's different now, the donuts became "artisan" like lotus, lemon mirangue, etc., so you're not getting the same old-fashioned taste as The Donut Man ( Crying ) but as far as today's donuts go, Schreiber's has excellent options. I agree there's really nowhere to get a good, old-fashioned donut like from The Donut Man.

It's owned by a guy from Williamsburg
The original guy from gobos was just there in the beggining to help set it up

The food and donuts are amazing from there!
Very tasty food and really good donuts / pastries !
Enjoy!
