Vegan Goodies from Revolution Doughnuts

In Depth

Just because one chooses to forego all meat and dairy, whether for philosophical or health reasons, it shouldn't mean a lifetime of miserably dry, flavorless food. Gourmet donut shops across the United States now cater to the vegan crowd, offering exciting new flavors and creations. In no particular order, this list shares a few bakeries that are sure to wow all palates.

The #1 entry is Mighty-O Donuts, a small chain of bakeries in the Seattle area. It sells many different flavors, including Coffee Bomb, Blueberry Monster, and Chocolate Cake. The bakery offers both mini and regular sized donut varieties for those looking to cater large events, such as weddings, graduations, or office parties.

The company bakes everything from scratch and does not use artificial colors, additives, dyes, or preservatives in its small cakes. It tries to be sustainably-minded and composts all food waste. Mighty-O has five locations throughout Seattle, including shops in Denny Triangle, Capitol Hill, Ballard, and Greenlake.

Up next, at #2, we have Primo's Donuts, based in Los Angeles, California. The bakery has been around since 1956 and sells many flavors such as Cherry Cake, Chocolate Buttermilk, Cinnamon Churro, and other baked goods like Bearclaws, Apple Strudels, and Croissants. There are a wide variety of seasonal and holiday donuts, celebrating occasions such as Mother's Day.

Primo's sells confections for group events such as school functions and weddings and accepts custom orders. One can also rent the bakery's Donut Wall, which is an upright display of over 126 edible treats. The sign is customizable and can include photos to create a truly unique dessert experience.

Coming in at #3 is Dough, a New York-based donut bakery with several locations, including Flatiron, Rockefeller Center, and East Midtown. Flavor options include Blueberry Lemon, Sour Cream, Dulce De Leche, and Cheesecake. There are always several limited edition seasonal choices, like Margarita in Summer, and Key Lime Pie in Winter.

Dough's donuts are handmade in small batches throughout the day to ensure that they are fresh for diners to enjoy. The kitchens at its locations are visible, so anyone can see how the sweets are made. The bakery has been featured in many press outlets, such as Veg News, AM New York, and NBC.

For #4, we present Blue Star, a bakery with locations in Portland, Oregon, and Los Angeles, California. It crafts its donuts from locally sourced ingredients and collaborators, cranking out unusual creations like Blueberry Bourbon Basil, Meyer Lemon and Key Lime Curd, and Hard Apple Cider Fritter, the latter of which is seasoned with cinnamon and coriander.

Blue Star was founded in 2012 by CEO & owner Katie Poppe, who has opened over 30 restaurants, including Little Big Burger and Boxer Ramen; she was named one of Portland Business Journal's 40 under 40. The bakery has been featured in the media many times, with write-ups in Forbes, Conde Nast, Vogue, Haute Living, and elsewhere.

The last entry, #5, is Revolution Doughnuts, which has two locations in the Atlanta, Georgia area. Diners can enjoy a range of flavors including Lime Coconut, which is a vegan option, and Blueberry Almond Crumb, which is gluten and dairy free. All of the bakery's doughs, glazes and fillings are natural, trans-fat free, and made by hand.

Revolution began as a small family-owned baking endeavor known as The Little Red Hen Bakeshop. The two outposts serve coffee and espresso from Cafe Campesino and Counter Culture, and all syrups are made in-house with Revolution's own recipes. One can buy a special peach donut during Georgia's harvest season for the stone fruit.
