This place has AMAZING donuts. Very different flavors and they always have out free samples to try. They are very filling too. one donut will fill a woman or child up. Go in the morning when the donuts are fresh and warm. They donuts are not near as good in the afternoon after they've been sitting all day.

I love these donuts! The donuts are creative and delicious. The service was fast and the shop had a great ambience.

I will most definitely be back when I return to Santa Monica.

By far the best doughnuts that we've had, calorific yes but very tasty and freshly prepared.
Good points:
+ Interesting variety of great tasting doughnuts
+ Fresh and hopefully a little healthier than mass produced doughnuts
+ Next to Mendocino Farm (so makes a great dessert after having one of the Mendocino sandwiches)
+ Small outdoor seating area at the front
Not so good points:
- Service is just ok, not that friendly on the day we visited

I was very excited at the prospect of trying out this place whilst staying in Santa Monica.
The service was friendly enough and the coffee tasted just fine.
The selection of donuts was fantastic and there were colors galore!
The donuts themselves looked like a work of art however they tasted just ok which left me slightly disappointed.

We could never understand the American obsession with doughnuts until we discovered Sidecar Doughnuts in Santa Monica! These are without doubt the freshest, lightest and tastiest doughnuts ever!!! The range of flavours is fantastic with some really unusual ones and you struggle to pick just one. The coffee is also great here too and the staff are lovely ..... they even cooked our favourite flavour while we waited as it wasn't on the menu on the day we visited (it's blueberry cheesecake if you are wondering but the huckleberry is a close second)! We visited twice in our 3 day stay this time and can't wait to go back.
