Voodoo Doughnut: A Portland Bakery Destination

July 21, 2015 4:45 pm

Known for innovation and humor, Voodoo Doughnut is a Portland landmark. Although it attracts curious tourists and a late night crowd, don't let the rush of people keep you away. These creative concoctions are worth a try.

Be forewarned, these are not old-school doughnuts perfected over decades of baking. You'll find unique toppings, including bacon, Oreos, and even Captain Crunch cereal. Some favorites include Bacon Maple and the Voodoo Doll, the latter being a chocolate frosted doughnut with raspberry filling and pretzel stick stake.

This place is popular, so you may encounter a bit of a wait at peak times. The wait is said to be worth it for this bakery's sweet treats. Bring cash, as Voodoo Doughnut doesn't take cards.
