New Layered Doughnut Shop, Outcast Doughnuts, Opens in Mesa

Excitement is brewing in Mesa as the East Valley prepares for the grand opening of Outcast Doughnuts this week. Slated to open June 10, this highly anticipated establishment will revolutionize the traditional breakfast pastry by offering a delicious twist and an irresistible menu full of creative selections. 

The heart of Outcast Doughnuts is its handcrafted, one-of-a-kind layered donuts. By utilizing croissant dough as the foundation, owner TJ Tillman and his team have achieved a delightful balance of textures and flavors, resulting in a “buttery, crispy-on-the-outside-soft-on-the-inside, layered” masterpiece. This innovative approach creates an indulgent treat that is simply irresistible.

Beyond their delicious donuts, Outcast offers a myriad of diverse options on their extensive menu with something for everyone. Patrons will be especially excited for the full bar stocked with an assortment of beverages. While Outcast will serve classics, like mimosas and Bloody Marys, the restaurant also plans to rotate local craft beers on flights served with mini-doughnuts. 

Coffee lovers are also in for a treat as Outcast Doughnuts presents a series of exceptional signature drinks. Among the variety of options is what Tillman claims to be “the single best espresso martini ever created.” This cocktail is a must-try for coffee aficionados and cocktail enthusiasts alike.

Outcast Doughnuts continues to push the boundaries of culinary creativity with their other innovative menu items. One feature that has already gained traction on social media is their sandwiches, which incorporate glaze-free doughnuts as the bread. These sandwiches bring the meaning of sweet and savory to a whole new level by marrying the sweet foundation with a selection of delicious toppings, leaving guests yearning for more.

For those looking for something on the sweeter side, Outcast Doughnuts has introduced their signature creation: the “Doughcone.” This ingenious treat combines the beloved ice cream cone with a doughnut by using their handcrafted doughnut dough as the base for the cones. The Doughcone comes in a variety of flavors, offering a delightful twist on the traditional ice cream experience that is sure to please dessert enthusiasts of all ages. 

The opening of Outcast Doughnuts marks a significant milestone in the East Valley’s culinary scene. The 3,325 square-foot establishment combines innovative flavors, imaginative pairings and an unmatched dedication to quality that are sure to set Outcast apart. As an added bonus, the first 50 guests to visit on opening day will receive the restaurant’s custom-designed State 48 collab T-shirt with purchase.
