I’m still in a doughnut coma while I type this and feeling a bit like Homer Simpson. When I first heard about the opportunity to try these doughnuts before they opened to the public tomorrow, I couldn’t help but be excited. All they had to say was doughnuts and where. My sweet tooth and I would be there.
What I love about Sidecar is that it’s not your typical doughnut shop. It still has the mom and pop feel to it while sticking to the basics of good quality fresh ingredients and only baking from scratch with ingredients like imported huckleberries for their signature huckleberry doughnut and Meyer Lemons for their lemon poundcake doughnut which I just so happened to love despite my extreme dislike for anything lemon. Imagine that. I think you have a new fan, Sidecar!
Doughnut flavors will constantly be rotating however you can always get the huckleberry, cinnamon crumb, and the maple bacon (my least favorite but that’s just personal preference). And it’s not just about the doughnuts here – they’ve also got you covered with the coffee and oh my is it exquisite! They’re serving Stumptown Coffee straight from Portland, Oregon. I got to try my very first sip and I think I’m in love. I love a good cup of coffee with my doughnut and this team has nailed it. I’m really excited to have them in the neighborhood about 5 minutes away. If you see my waistline begin to expand, you’ll know where I’ve been but enough words for now. Listen to the podcast (by clicking on the photo below) and see what else I’ve got to say along with my special guest for the night – Gloria Vega. Enjoy!
