Sidecar Doughnuts in Santa Monica


While Los Angeles may be a city full of trends that come and go quickly – some things never go out of style. One of those things? Doughnuts!

Doughnuts are one of America’s favorite deep-fried treats, and no matter how much one may be trying to watch their waistline, it is almost impossible to turn one down. Los Angeles is full of little shops that have this doughy staple, but there is none that can compare to that of Sidecar Doughnuts.

Located in Santa Monica, you will rarely see this little shop without a line of hungry doughnut-loving customers. Don’t worry, the line moves quickly and as you wait you can see them bake, frying, and frosting the confectious eats. It’s always good to know your doughnuts are fresh, and the doughnuts are basically bought before they are even out of the fryer.

Seasonal flavors are introduced every few weeks, and they also tote some interesting flavors that are good choices all year round (who could ever say no to a maple glazed bacon doughnut?) Don’t worry – for all those who love a good old-fashioned doughnut or apple fritter, there are always classics on the menu. Gluten Free? You know they have options for you (come on, it’s Los Angeles). If you are feeling really fancy, definitely give their Sunday Special Basil Eggs Benedict a try. It’s definitely not your average Benedict – it’s a Malasada style doughnut filled with, not cream, but a poached egg, ham, and basil hollandaise sauce.

Another plus of Sidecar? Coffee. You can’t have the perfect doughnut without a great cup of coffee to go along. Their espresso won’t disappoint.

Sidecar Doughnuts is located at 631 Wilshire Blvd. Santa Monica, California 90401.  Also, if down in Orange County, they have another location in Costa Mesa!
