Every guest who purchases this special holiday treat will also receive a free cup of brewed Stumptown Coffee.  The Peach Cobbler doughnut is a delectable addition to an already impressive line-up of treats.

National Doughnut Day is on the first Friday in June every year.  The holiday comes from a tradition created by The Salvation Army in Chicago to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.   What started as a fundraiser has spread to a day of doughnut loving celebrations nationwide.

The tradition continues in the City of the Arts, Costa Mesa, at Sidecar Doughnuts and CoffeeSidecar is located on 17th in a small storefront.  You’ll know when you’re there by the big, red Sidecar truck and the line of salivating fans that is sure to extend beyond the doors.
