    Several LA restaurants are offering offbeat twists on the staple items of the season. Here's where and when.

    Trejo's Coffee and Donuts: Thanksgiving Doughnuts

    Pumpkin pie? Yes, of course, but that doesn't mean there's no room for something sweet from Trejo's Coffee and Donuts in Hollywood. There's a filled  doughnut with a nutmeg glaze and pumpkin pie custard. It's part of a limited time menu.

    • Where: 6785 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood
    • Price: $2-$3

    • Where: All 11 Slater's 50/50 locations
