Surfside Donuts

Try creatively topped donuts at this Pismo Beach specialty shop

Removed from Likes

Looking for just about any type of donut imaginable? You just might find it at Surfside Donuts in Pismo Beach. Founded in 2015 by surfer Andy McKay and his wife, Carin, the joint is appointed with a surfboard collage and photos of popular surf spots and piers in Southern California.

The daily-rotating donut menu might include the Strawberry Clam Shell with fresh strawberries and cream; the Mexican Hot Chocolate topped with toasted marshmallows; the glazed Maple Bacon drizzled with bacon bits; and the Dirt Surf, a brown-sugar crumb donut. Other drool-worthy fried rings for kids (or just kids at heart) have toppings like Fruity Pebbles and Oreos.

Surfside also offers healthier options, like frozen acai or pitaya (dragon fruit) bowls mixed with granola and your choice of fresh fruit. And to accompany your breakfast—or to carry down to the nearby Pismo Beach Pier—order a Stumptown coffee.
