Happy Friday friends! Okay, this might be one of my most drool-worthy posts. DOUGHNUTS!!! Not just any doughnuts, the most delicious and unique doughnuts in Los Angeles, CA. Sidecar Doughnuts has been offering a unique spin on doughnuts and coffee since 2012.
Located in the neighborhood of Santa Monica, CA, Sidecar is a tiny shop, that makes a big impression. Immediately walking through the door you are met with a smell so delightful, you will have think you died and gone to heaven. As you make your way through the line, a friendly employee behind the counter greets you as she dunks another fresh doughnut into a giant bowl of icing. Cue the drool. Next to her are rows and rows of the little round beauties that make this doughnut experience so memorable.
Daily flavors include cinnamon crumb and huckleberry. But they also have monthly flavors like blueberry cheesecake, and German chocolate cake (June only, so get a move on as they will be gone soon!). They do offer gluten free flavors, but they are not a gluten free facility.
Perhaps the best thing about Sidecar is that the doughnuts are fresh, and aren’t heavy or greasy. Everything is made in-house from the dough, to the custards, and creams, compotes, and glazes. They pride themselves on using quality ingredients and as a result, you can really taste it in their product.
After you’ve picked our your doughnut, order one of their tasty coffees, before finding a seat outside on their patio. Enjoy the California weather as you sip your coffee and eat the most incredible doughnut you will ever taste. And the great thing is, because there are new flavors every month, you have to keep going back to try them all!
