PBDG at Dynamo Donuts

Psycho Donuts will always be THE donut source for PBDG, but when a girl isn’t in the South Bay, she has to get her donuts somewhere. Where, you ask? Dynamo Donuts and Coffee!!

so yummy with latte!

Director Don Starnes and I have been trying to visit this donut mecca in San Francisco for months, but something always prevents us — production meeting runs long, train schedule doesn’t fit, etc.  We finally made it on Sunday, en route to the SFFS Hemingway and Gellhorn screening. (Shout out to PBDG sound mixer Lou Wiskes, who worked on H&G.)

Back to the donuts.




Dynamo makes seasonal donuts with amazing unusual flavors.

It’s hard to choose…

flavors of the day

We were FORCED to get one of each 😉

yes, we got them all.  do you have a problem with that??

Don ate 5 of them, I only had 1/2…

OK, I had a ton.  My favorite on the day we were there was apricot cardamom.

Next time you are in the Mission, check out Dynamo. 2760 24th St., between Hampshire & York.

I asked if I could come back and take more photos in the kitchen, so stand by for an early morning donut photorama sometime in the future.

PBDG: Don on Donuts

The cast and crew of PBDG loved the donuts provided by our wonderful donut sponsor, Psycho Donuts of Campbell and San Jose.

This is my favorite prop/set dressing in the movie: the lovely folks at Psycho Donuts created PBDG artwork on one of the donut boxes as a surprise. It appears in the background of several scenes.
