Sidecar Doughnuts & Coffee

A unique and delicious new doughnut shop has arrived in Orange County!

I got the chance to sample their goodies and meet the owners of Sidecar Doughnuts & Coffee!

Sidecar is the brainchild of Brooke Des Prez and Sumter Pendergrast, a creative duo with a commitment to making doughnuts cool again.

The pair bring an artistic flare to the culinary venture, which can be seen in the creativity and passion poured into not only their distinctive doughnuts, but also into every creative detail of their brick and mortar store.

Sidecar’s finely crafted doughnuts are made daily from scratch using only the finest ingredients, and no preservatives… ever! Simple recipes combined with the use of quality ingredients allow you to eat more than one doughnut and still feel great. We feature yeast-raised, cake, and buttermilk old-fashioned varieties, which we have dressed up with extras like fresh fruit, artisan chocolate, and even bacon. They also offer a selection of specialty baked goods as well such as Malasadas and Cinnamon Rolls. With an eye to seasonal ingredients, and an insatiable creative drive, their chef regularly concocts new doughnut flavors and treats, allowing their offerings to update often.Sidecar Doughnuts Collage 2

The decor is decidedly eclectic, and the atmosphere is cozy and friendly. I felt like an old friend, and enjoyed myself immensely!
