Rating: Best (but pricey) donuts I’ve had
There has been a lot of buzz about sidecar donuts, a super trendy artisanal donut shop in Santa Monica. Truth is, I adore a good donut, so I figured I’d give it a try.
Plus there are very creative flavors, although far less flavors than a typical shop. Here some flavors rotate daily and some weekly or monthly.
Coconut Cream. Our signature brioche raised doughnut topped with housemate coconut milk custard & cream, toasted coconut shards, and pie crust crumble. Arousingly good.
Overall, These were some seriously good donuts. You pay for it with a 4-5X multiple, so I wouldn’t be ordering them up en-mass for a party, but as I’m more calorie limited than worrying about a couple of bucks, definitely a treat!
The Mendocino Farms next door seems to be doing a healthy business too. Look at the line at 11:30am on a random Tuesday! I’ll have to try it out.
