Psycho Donuts Review

October 7, 2015

To nib on a Dirty Turtle, to savor a Suicide Squeeze and to fulfill many more of your weirdest food fantasies you can when visiting Psycho Donuts.

Located both in downtown San Jose and Campbell, Psycho Donuts offers a great variety of pastry. Some of them have classic tastes such as raspberry filling , and others — such as the Dead Elvis — a mix of cream, peanut butter and bacon.

One thing that seems to unite all the doughnuts is plenty of ingredients. Comfortably Numb is uncomfortably filled with chocolate filling, and you won’t need more freezer-dried strawberries than Strawberry Fields already has.

Regardless of countless zombies and monsters pictured over the place, Angela Ling, 18, San Jose State University student, said it is “cozy and not intimidating to go inside.”

She explained that the horror movie motives can scare away older people, but are perfect for attracting young visitors.

Psycho Donuts’ neighbor is Camera 3, a movie theatre that won’t play new blockbuster, but will definitely show a less known film about “LSD father,” Timothy Leary, or the Stanford Prison Experiment.

And while you are waiting for another art house movie, Psycho Donuts offers movie theatre necessities such as popcorn and soda.

The place has four tables inside, and even though the seats are a little stiff, casual  nurses looking at the visitors from the tables  compensate for it.

Psycho Donuts also has 16 seating spots outside in front of the graffiti covered walls and window art, the result of some designer going wild. Passers-by actually stop to take photos of the exterior. “It has the unique San Jose style,”San Jose State student, Allysa Collado, 18,  student, said.

Besides unusual cuisine, the place also sells masks you might buy for a Halloween party and other things for… well, what is this occasion for which you’ll need Gone Kitty or Edgar Alan Poe air freshener?..

So whether you are looking for a place to have breakfast before going to classes or just for a cool place to hang out and eat something like Michael Jackson, a “chocolate cake donut that become decidedly lighter,” check out Psycho Donuts. Doughnuts have never been so deliciously psychotic before.
