Off the Menu OC

Covering the dining scene in and around the OC

June 7 is National Doughnut Day!

x_MG_3987We love doughnuts, so of course we love National Doughnut Day!

Several national brands are giving away doughnuts today, including Dunkin’ Donuts (one free donut with any beverage purchase) and Krispy Kreme (one free, no purchase necessary).

However, if you’re in The OC, our favorite doughnut spot is Sidecar Doughnuts on 17th Street in Costa Mesa_MG_3882.

We first sampled Sidecar’s fabulous gourmet creations last fall when they offered free samples every Saturday morning at their test kitchen. We can honestly say they are the best doughnuts we’ve ever had–and we’ve had a lot! Consider them the Sprinkles of the donut world.

Their exotic concoctions include Maple Bacon (a perfect combo), Huckleberry, Cinnamon Crumb, and Samoa (yes, they look and taste like the classic Girl Scout cookies).

For National Doughnut Day, they’re introducing a new flavor: Peach Cobbler with Corn Thyme Crumb made with fresh farmers market peaches, and finished with homemade cream and crumble topping–and a sprig of thyme.
