Dunkin’ Donuts announced on Monday, Dec. 4, that it has opened its San Clemente location at 635 Camino De Los Mares.

“The new location will serve Dunkin’ Donuts’ full line of signature menu items including fresh brewed coffee and iced beverages, as well as delicious baked goods and sandwiches,” the release stated.

A grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 9, and the first 500 customers who make a purchase of $5 or more at the location will receive one free custom San Clemente Dunkin’ Donuts tumbler. There will also be samples as well as snap photos with the Dunkin’ Donuts mascot, Cuppy. The San Clemente location will offer eight weeks of special deals for Dunkin’ Donuts patrons, with a new promotion each week to resemble the awesome benefits of joining the DD Perks app.
