Did you know that National “Doughnut” Day, was created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor those who served donuts to soldiers during World War I? Too bad there were no vegan options back then!
Dun-Well, an all-vegan bakery, has been a neighborhood staple for nearly a decade and boasts a rotating list of 200 donut varieties *mind blown* as well as ice cream and French-press coffee… Show off!
Vegan bakery williamsburg, brooklyn
A giant donut mural welcomes you upon arrival and an antique wooden case full of 19 rows of donut goodness (yes, I counted) are calling your name. You’ll be met with a variety, ranging from maple French toast (think: cinnamon toast crunch sprinkled on top) and maple raspberry pie to lemon cookie and blueberry pistachio, but that’s not even the half of it. Come on another day and you might be met by a caramel glazed donut topped with kettle corn and chocolate drizzle…No, seriously. Look!
here’s what i ordered
With a pastry like that, it’s easy to see how this place is considered to have the best vegan donuts in Brooklyn, New York. Ordering was the hardest part for me. After five minutes of not knowing what to go with, I finally chose the strawberry sprinkle donut, for something traditional, and the maple French toast, for something a little different. They were both incredible, but my favorite of the two was the maple French toast. It was airy and fluffy, coated in glazed maple goodness and packed with a flavorful cinnamon punch… Or dare I say, cinnamon crunch. The crushed up pieces of cereal on top added a slight crispiness that was a welcomed surprise.
