The "Big Donut" is a store in Beach City that sells doughnuts and assorted food products and the place where Sadie and Lars work.

Logo on the shirts worn by the Employees


The Big Donut's roof is topped with a large doughnut sign covered in chocolate icing with pink and green sprinkles. The walls are a muted violet-brown, and the window canopies are a deep pink and brown striped pattern printed with "Big Donut" in front.


Goods can be purchased at a counter at the back of the store's front room; baked goods are stored under the counter. Vending machines, coolers, and product posters line the walls. Small tables are scattered around the shop.

Behind the store front through a hallway on the right is the storage room, where baked goods and other products are held. An employee break room with a small television and shipping boxes containing some food products, is located behind the central room.

A small parking lot with a few street lights is situated behind the building.

The company's logo is a doughnut resembling the letter "D" with a bite taken out of the side to resemble the letter "B". Employee t-shirts are printed with the logo.






Steven buys three doughnuts for the Crystal Gems, but since he goes back in time, he has 9. He pushes the Big Donut's doughnut sign from the roof onto the Electric Skulls, defeating them.

Doughnuts are currently shipped to the store, following an undisclosed "accident."
