I braved the line at Voodoo yesterday morning to get some vegan doughnuts. There's typically about a 20-minute wait, both times I've been there I've just managed to slip inside the door. Yesterday, everybody wanted doughnuts. As I waited, I watched the line extend outside and down the block. I was glad I arrived early.
I could barely see my bike through the window! I wonder what kind of doughnut that dog is going to get...
The wait is worth your while. First, there's racks upon racks of pretty doughnuts to gaze upon. There are Also, it smells like doughnuts. Finally, when you get up to the counter and get your big pink box of doughnuts, a grin of pure happiness will begin to spread across your face.
Choosing your doughnuts is also fun! Imagine my delight when, on my first visit to Voodoo, I discovered that the entire bottom shelf of doughnuts in the carousel display are vegan!
On my first trip to Voodoo I got a Fruit Loop, a Grape Ape and a Voodoo Doll, which is a raspberry-jam-filled doughnut that comes with a pretzel stick for poking. They were all so good that I got one more of each, plus a few new confections to try, namely: a Portland Creme, a Colfax Creme, and an Old Dirty Bastard.
They survived the bike ride to my art studio pretty well. That was a nice bike ride, with the yummy doughnut smells. Voodoo Doll lost its arm and got a bit sticky, but that's what voodoo dolls are for. I was too hungry to wait and since the Colfax Creme was a bit squashed I attacked that one right away. It's a custard-filled doughnut with maple frosting. I've always had a thing for custard cremes.
Voodoo Doughnut is at 1520 East Colfax Ave., Denver, Colorado. This is the only Voodoo store outside of Oregon! Bring cash! It's a cash-only establishment, but if you forget there's an ATM inside. A vegan dozen will only set you back about $15.
