It’s been quite some time since I wrote about Sidecar Doughnuts. For those who aren’t familiar, Sidecar Doughnuts is a delightful doughnut shop in Costa Mesa that bakes fresh doughnuts daily made with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives. The Englishman and I pop in there every so often for a weekend treat, and when I heard about all the exciting things happening this summer at Sidecar Doughnuts, I knew I had to pop in and check it out.
This summer, Sidecar Doughnuts is introducing what they call “Sidecar Nights,” where the shop will be open on Fridays and Saturdays until 9pm! Perfect for any time you have a doughnut craving after dinner. And since the doughnuts are made fresh hourly, you won’t have to choose from the morning’s leftovers. Psst – if you come in the morning keep your receipt for $2 off your doughnut later in the day!
The other exciting thing happening this summer at Sidecar Doughnuts is the introduction of their signature coffee, Forty Winks. Admittedly the Englishman and I do not really drink coffee at all, but there’s something special about this blend. Sidecar partnered with famed Stumptown Coffee to create their Forty Winks blend and it is good. If you are a coffee enthusiast, I definitely recommend checking it out.
Of course each month Sidecar Doughnuts introduces delicious new flavors and this month is no exception. Some of the August flavors include a Malasada doughnut with strawberry jam, a Mid-Summer Garden Cake made with zucchini, a Buttermilk Old Fashioned, and Fig and Goat Cheese. I’d like to think that the Buttermilk Old Fashioned was made in honor of my birthday month because it is that good.
Now who wants to go get a doughnut with me?
