Voodoo Doughnut

22 SW 3rd Ave., Portland, OR - (503) 241-4704
Posted By Mark Reitman on 3/5/2014 5:11:00 PM
The original Voodoo Doughnut is all about the experience: standing outside in a line with more tattoos and piercings than I ever seen, entering a teeny weeny storefront, unusual shapes and combinations of flavors, at a hour that most people would have already been fast asleep. The maple/bacon bar is delicious, the peach fritter is the size of hub cap, and the Captain Crunch donut is great for an early breakfast. Parking is tough, the crowd has it's share of characters, and I love every moment of it. Too bad that they don't serve coffee, however there's a Stumptown coffee shop right down the street.

Odd, but delicious, the blue moon pie donut is a chocolate donut covered with graham crackers and filled with blue marshmallow.

There is an immensely satisfying crunch to the crust of these old fashioned doughnuts, glazed to the left, chocolate-frosted to the right.

Weird, but it works ... at least for one of us Sterns, who loved the crunch of the bacon combined with the intense maple frosting atop this fine pastry. The other Stern thought it somewhat Frankensteinian.

The day's selection is displayed on the revolvng shelves of a glass case. Note the large selection of vegan doughnuts. Vegan fare is a not uncommon option in Portland's multitude of counter culture eateries.

The neon sign outside is every bit as unique as the donuts inside.

We're not sure what the space occupied by Voodoo Doughnut used to be, but its raw industrial nature has not been monkeyed with and it adds a brawny charm to this destination doughnut shop.

Voodoo Doughnut cast a powerful come-back-to-me spell on those who eat them.
