Psycho Donuts 288 S. 2nd St./San Carlos, downtown. Hours vary. A visit might leave you speechless. Here is how the shop self-describes, “Psycho Donuts is the world's first and only asylum for wayward donuts. Psycho Donuts has "donutized" everything from pizzas, tacos, and even sushi! You'll find crazy-fresh, original donuts topped with everything from Oreo cookies and Captain Crunch, to Rice Krispie Treats and Nutella. Check out our crazy gourmet donuts like The Dead Elvis, filled with custard and topped with bananas, peanut butter & jelly, and bacon; and The Strawberry Margarita, filled with tequila pastry cream, topped with real strawberry and margarita salt. A trip to Psycho Donuts is a sensory experience, designed to bring out the crazy in all of us. Psycho nurses are on hand to provide bubblewrap therapy to minimize your selection anxiety. Psycho Donuts doubles as a quirky, offbeat art gallery, offering inexpensive original artwork from local artists.” I couldn’t have said it better myself! More donuts worth trying are the Boston Scream Pie—a skull face topped with powdered sugar—and the Cereal Killer with marshmallow frosting. While you’re here, you might want to pick up a souvenir logo pen that looks like a syringe.
