Cranky’s Story


In 2006, Susie and Al set up shop here in East Tosa as a homegrown coffee and doughnut shop. After fine-tuning their morning offering (and winning accolades for their cruellers, Hoytie Toyties, and sprinkly dinklies), they followed the natural progression of things, and expanded their business to pizza.

Their pizzas became an instant favorite in the area from The Cranky, featuring sausage and pepperoni, to the Freshtable and Susie Special.

What connects their food from predawn to dusk is the quality. From the care and attention put into hand cranking each and every doughnut to the dedication of using only the highest quality ingredients in all our food, Cranky’s offers only the best to its customers.

The Cranky Team


Owner and Founder of Cranky’s, Susie is the reigning mama bear. It is Susie’s life mission to feed you good food and make you feel at home. If it isn’t Susie Approved, it isn’t getting across that counter and to your table. Susie believes in serving up delicious homemade food with a side of friendship and community. Catch her without a hat on – we double dare you!


Alongside Susie, Al is an original founder of Cranky’s. He spent years fine-tuning his pizza recipes, hand cranking doughnuts and perfecting the art of exuding supreme crankiness.
