Flipped: Doughnuts. Coffee. Chicken

34255 Pacific Coast Hwy., Unit 103


As of this Saturday, June 30, “The Row” on the west side of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) will have yet another delicious addition for Dana Point to enjoy as Flipped: Doughnuts.Coffee.Chicken celebrates their official grand opening.

Founder and owner Richard Son called Flipped: Doughnuts. Coffee.Chicken a “full ma’ and pa’ operation.”

“We wanted to make something different,” Son said.

Together, Son and partner Tommy Kin decided to close other franchised restaurant ventures in order to open this one-of-a-kind location.

“They all take fryers?’” Son reasoned concerning what may seem like a strange combination. “Everything is made from scratch. We get organic cake batter for the doughnuts and organic chicken. We want to make something unique for Dana Point to enjoy.”

Son said that he has wanted a location in Dana Point for a long time and when he saw this opportunity at “The Row,” he knew this was it.

“After our soft opening, the Chicken Sandwich BLT has revealed itself as a fan favorite,” Son explained. On a waffled Brioche bun, this sandwich sports thick apple-smoked bacon and vegetables that are pickled in-house.

Waiting for lunch may be difficult as Flipped opens their days with an assortment of artesian doughnuts including bacon-covered glazed, Tiramisu and more.

Currently, Flipped will be open from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday, and closed on Mondays, but only in July. In the future, Son said hours may be adjusted to meet community demand.
