Quality Starts With Our Chickens

You’ve heard of California’s “happy cows,” but what about “happy chickens”? Just a few hours away from San Diego in the San Joaquin Valley, Mary’s Free Range Chickens soak up the California sunshine before being delivered direct to our kitchen six days a week. We pay a premium to provide you the freshest, most delicious chicken available, and our commitment to quality doesn’t end there. You won’t find any microwaves, heat lamps, or freezers in our kitchen because we know the value of doing certain things the old fashioned way. Yes, it takes a few more minutes, but once you dig into your first piece, you’ll realize it’s worth the wait.

Our cooked-to-order Chicken is prepared three ways: Big Mama’s Southern Fried Chicken, Nashville HOT, and K-Tow—the Korean Twice Fried Chicken that promises the ultimate in crispiness.
Putting The Dough Back In Doughnut - We hate to break it to you, but many of your favorite donut joints use pre-made baking mixes to churn out their daily assortment.

Not us, though. At Streetcar Merchants, we can call our delicious creations “doughnuts” because we make them from scratch every day using the highest quality raw ingredients.

We hand roll, hand cut, and hand dress every single doughnut the old fashioned way. It might take more time, but one bite will make a slow-food believer out of you.
Every day, we offer a dozen unique doughnut flavors like Salted Nutella, Strawberry Milkshake, Powdered Sugar Peach, Bumblebee Honey Peanut Butter, Molasses Maple Bacon, and a host of other innovative flavors you won’t find at the corner donut shop.

No Ordinary Brew

Our commitment to quality goes for everything that comes out of our kitchen, even our coffee. That’s why we serve Stumptown Coffee, a Portland-based roaster that prizes quality, sustainability, and a close direct relationship with independent coffee bean growers around the world. They expertly roast each batch of beans to draw out the perfect blend of flavor notes and acidity. In fact, the only thing better than a hot, freshly brewed cup of Stumptown Coffee is one of our gourmet doughnuts or beignets served alongside.
