I honestly love doughnuts, like truly love them. I first tried Sidecar Doughnuts while waiting for an appointment in Orange County, and after one bite of a salt and butter doughnut, I was hooked!!

The flavors are classically unique. Flavors like violet, butter and salt, rosemary, huckleberry, coconut cream pie, and black velvet are just a few of my faves.

We were all very happy when they opened a Santa Monica location. The shop is charming and their attention to detail and design is what I love so much about Sidecar.

Even the plates and mugs are from a previous employee who left to start their own ceramics company! The doughnuts are made from scratch in small batches, every 4 hours and they don’t use any preservatives.

  1. I agree! I love their donuts and have not had anything better! We were in Portland recently and Blue Star was suppose to be the best there. Flavors are unique, but I took one bite of it and was so disappointed! Made me crave Sidecar so much. It was so chewy and sweet. Sidecar has the perfect bite and flavor combo is divine.

  2. Mmmmm. Sounds yummy. My wish is that when I visit Santa Clarita next week (or some little town nearby) that my hostess would have a few Sidecars to share……
