Goods can be bought at a counter at the back of the store's front room; baked goods are stored under the counter. Flyers and advertisements can be seen on a board near the counter. Vending machines, coolers, and product posters that line the walls are also found. Notably Cookie Cats and Lion Lickers. Small tables are scattered about the shop.

Behind the storefront 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, chairs, a table, and some 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.

History

"Pilot"

Although not being canonical, in the Pilot, Steven buys three donuts for the Crystal Gems, but since he goes back in time twice, he has 9 in 3 bags. Later, to save the Crystal Gems, Sadie, and Lars, he pushes the Big Donut's donut sign from the roof onto the Electric Skull which destroyed it.

"Gem Glow"

Steven tries buying Cookie Cats at the Big Donut before the store stops carrying them, and Sadie allows him to take the freezer, as Lion Lickers became more popular and higher in demand. Later in the episode, Amethyst destroys the dumpster behind the Big Donut to which Lars exclaims, "Again?!", implying that she has done this previously.

"Cat Fingers"

Steven goes to the Big Donut to demonstrate his cat fingers to Lars and Sadie.

"Bubble Buddies"

Steven and Connie go to the Big Donut for assistance to break Steven's magical bubble, only to be mocked by Lars while Sadie tries to break the bubble with a hammer and stool.

"So Many Birthdays"

While rapidly aging, middle-aged Steven goes to the Big Donut to order a donut and becomes depressed as he realizes that he is old. Sadie is unable to recognize Steven because he is aging quickly. Steven asks Sadie if she could assist him in getting into his birthday suit, and Sadie chases him out of the store.

"Rose's Room"

While Steven is inside Rose's Room in the Crystal Temple, it creates a false Big Donut, complete with holographic versions of Lars and Sadie.

"Coach Steven"

Steven goes here to show Lars and Sadie his injury (a small cut from shrapnel) from his encounter with the fusion Gem, Sugilite.

"Joking Victim"

Steven becomes a temporary employee at the Big Donut. Sadie shows Steven the back of the store, and also a training tape for employees. Later, Sadie and Steven decide to take revenge on Lars for tricking Sadie, so they give him a donut with fire salt on top. Lars starts a fire in the Big Donut, and Sadie puts out the fire with a fire extinguisher.

"House Guest"

Greg requests that Steven go to the Big Donut, but the shop is only mentioned.

"Island Adventure"

Steven goes to the Big Donut and convinces Sadie and Lars to take a vacation on Mask Island.

"Watermelon Steven"

Steven visits the Big Donut to recover one of his sentient watermelons. Sadie had decorated the melon's head with a donut.

"Lion 3: Straight to Video"

Steven and Lion go to the Big Donut for breakfast one morning. Later, Steven and Sadie watch a tape from his mother Rose Quartz in the employee's room.

"Alone Together"

Stevonnie goes to the Big Donut to buy some donuts for themselves to eat. Thanks to being awed by Stevonnie's beauty, Lars and Sadie let them have the donuts for free.

"Future Vision"

Steven and Garnet explore Garnet's future vision at the Big Donut, and Lars almost accidentally spills hot coffee on Steven, before Garnet jumps in the way to stop it from burning him.

"Horror Club"

Lars and Sadie lock up the Big Donut before going to The Lighthouse with Steven to watch horror films.

"Shirt Club"

Steven puts up posters advertising Greg's guitar lessons on the store's bulletin board. Buck Dewey visits the store to order a salad, despite the Big Donut only selling baked desert items.

"Political Power"

Mayor Dewey and Steven visit the Big Donut during "Damage control" after the power outage.

"The Return"

The building is seen with all of its windows shattered by the Gem Warship's crash landing.

"Full Disclosure"

Out of habit, Steven visits the store the next day only to discover the store damaged and abandoned.

"Sadie's Song"

Steven hands out flyers for Beach-a-Palooza and finds Sadie singing in the back room. At the end of the episode, they return to the back room to perform the song in private.

"Steven Floats"

Steven realizes that the store is closed for the night, and Sadie greets him at the time advising him that if he wakes up right when the store opens at 7:00 AM, he will have the honor to have the store's first handmade fresh donut.

"The New Lars"

While hanging out the store, Steven asks Lars and Sadie whether koalas or sloths should be crowned the king of "hanging around, doing nothing mammals".

"Crack the Whip"

Amethyst, Steven and Connie visit the store to buy donuts.

"Future Boy Zoltron"

It's mentioned when Lars and Sadie contemplate whether to skip work or not. After encountering Zoltron (Steven), they decide to go after all when told their deep feelings.

"Last One Out of Beach City"

Steven, Pearl and Amethyst visit the store to get snacks and drinks before going to the rock show. They encounter Mystery Girl here.

Trivia

  • They used to make the donuts in the store, but now they just get them shipped to the store, due to a catastrophe that is known as "The Accident".
    • However, as of "Steven Floats", they now continue to bake donuts as the workplace safety lawsuit against them has been thrown out.

Errors

StevenCrewniverse
  • The prices for Donuts seem to be inconsistent, with a single donut being $0.99 while a "Combo" is $3.39, and a "Triple" is $2.49.
    • Another inconsistency is a sign that reads "WE ONLY SELL DONUTS!", even though croissants are sold as well.
