New Jersey’s popular Broad Street Dough Company has brought its customizable, baked-fresh-to-order donuts to The Lumberyard in Encinitas. The eatery offers several dozen different doughnuts on its regular everyday menu, including vegan and gluten-free varieties, as well as several daily specials. The backstory: In 2014, Ballast Point Brewing and Spirits tapped Joseph Ramaglia as general manager to open their 18,000-square-foot restaurant in San Diego. That same year, Ramaglia’s sister had created the Broad Street brand back East. Recognizing the potential, Ramaglia, now a partner, chose Encinitas as the place to launch their West Coast shop. 947 South Coast Highway. 760.704.8633, broadstreetdoughco.com
