Sidecar, Makers of California's Best Donuts, Now Open in Santa Monica.



Over a year after the news broke and months upon months of listening to silly food bloggers like yours truly waxing carb poetic, the opposite of doomsday has finally arrived: Sidecar Donuts is now officially slinging heaven in round-holed form in Santa Monica at 6th and Wilshire. Donuttery superlatives aside, the opening marks a major first expansion step for the Orange County darling (with other locations to come in ensuing years according to management) and also, coupled with the recent AK premiere of Blue Star, officially puts LA's Westside on the destination donut map.

Now, is there such thing as a "destination donut map?" No, but there should be! Even if that map doesn't actually exist, we shouldn't underplay the significance of these recent openings. Los Angeles, often on the forefront or the forefront of American cuisine, has oddly lagged in the fancy doughnut department. Compared to cities like Portland, Chicago and New York, we Los Angelenos, have been, well, holed. No longer. Especially in Santa Monica, which now lays home to one of the country's finest, if not the finest, glazed specimen creators. 

Like at the Costa Mesa original, Sidecar's Santa Monica opening was met with lines snaking out the door. Honestly, they may never go away, but this, unlike Pink's or Tito's, is a line worth waiting. Don't look at this as a total negative though: long lines and demand also guarantee fresh, piping hot pastry, no matter the hour. Which is a very welcome reprieve from other local spots. Additionally, Sidecar, aside from the menu standbys, offers monthly seasonal specials which will "make" you return on a semi-regular basis. You will have no choice. It will be your indigestible duty. This month, for example, they're featuring a chocolate cake donut with a phenomenal Callebaut chocolate glaze, a pumpkin and mascarpone mouse raised donut and a lemon with thyme number. 

The good people at Sidecar invited me to join the kick off festivities and I took a few pics, which you can find below. And as you will you see, you should probably be in that line already.
