Voodoo Doughnuts

posted in: Featured, Places To Visit | 0

We’ve all had doughnuts and other deep fried pastries. Powdered doughnuts, glazed, plain, bear claws, frosted, crème filled, apple fritters, maple bars; the doughnut possibilities are endless. And, police jokes aside, everyone likes them, even if they say they don’t.

That’s just part of what makes Voodoo Doughnut of Portland, Oregon so popular.

With three locations and a diverse variety of doughnuts that could only be thought up by the creative minds of Portland, Voodoo Doughnuts is a top destination for fine deep-fried food connoisseurs around the world. Driving past the downtown location nearly 24/7, you’ll find a line snaked around 3rd avenue and wrapping around Burnside. Something that popular and that busy has to be good… and one visit inside will show you why. If you don’t feel like waiting, hop on over to Davis and grab a delectable goodie, or, take a road trip down to Eugene. No matter how far you go, it’s worth the drive.

Yes, they have your “regular” varieties of doughnuts that we all know and love, but, this is Portland, Oregon. Have you ever thought of putting Cap’n Crunch and frosting on a doughnut? What about frying some bacon and slapping it on a maple bar? What about Fruit Loops and white frosting? Double-Bubble and pink frosting? Do you like your chocolate doughnuts with a few pretzels thrown on top to provide a little salty crunch to an otherwise chewy treat? Well, the clever minds at Voodoo have. And it’s all topped off with their top secret Voodoo sauce.

And, being Portland, Voodoo Doughnuts is somewhat health conscious (for a doughnut shop, that is). There are many gluten and cholesterol free doughnut options.

Voodoo Doughnut is world famous and a true Portland, landmark. Because they’re open 24 hours a day, you can always count on Voodoo for a late night treat, for an indulgent breakfast, for an afternoon pick me up, or a post-dinner dessert. There are no bad decisions when it comes to Voodoo Doughnuts, unless you make the decision not to come.

So, whether you want a dozen of your favorite, a dozen in a variety pack or just a doughnut or two to go, Voodoo Doughnuts can help you out. And, it’s not uncommon to spot a celebrity or two munching down on a Voodoo doughnut. Brad Pitt has been famously photographed consuming a maple bar from Voodoo, and numerous Portland Trail Blazers, the cast of Leverage and even the mayor have been known to pop in and chow down.

Living in Portland, you’re always close to a Voodoo doughnut shop. Forget Krispy Kreme. Portland, Oregon, you, and Voodoo Doughnuts go hand in hand.
