Vegan maple-frosted donut with homemade “bacon” from Sexy Vegan Mama! Dang, son! Hella cray. Yet, yummy-looking! I’m glad the Sexy Vegan Mama makes her own bacon because I haven’t found a vegan bacon I like. And maple is one of my favorite things. Maple sugar candy was my jam as a kid! Then one New Year’s Eve when I was 17 I drunkenly ate an entire box of maple sugar candy and haven’t been able to shake the bleh since.
Anyway, I NEED THIS IN MY MOUTH.
Gluten-free sugar-coated mini donuts from Fork and Beans! Nothing to see here folks, EXCEPT FOR EVERYTHING DELICIOUS. Man, Fork and Beans is the best. How great are vegan food blogs?? Ladies and Gentlemen of the kitchen prowess and photography skills, WE SALUTE YOU. Now, come move into our basement which is very comfortable and you can live there in an XL dog crate (we have extras, we’ll rent one to you!) and cook for us always and we’ll let you go outside for five minutes a day. Our very own free-range vegans!
Life would be great. For us, mainly.
Dun-Well Doughnuts opens today! »
Happy happy joy joy! I just read on Gothamist that Dun-Well in East* Williamsburg officially opened today! Is anyone planning on going over there today? Take a pic for me and tell me how it is! I may have to wait until tomorrow or so. I’LL BE COUNTING THE SECONDS.
BONUS: Adorable photo from DunWell’s twitter! Let’s go eat all the donuts!
*It’s come to my attention that it’s EAST Williamsburg. I’m from Philly, not Brooklyn! So pardon me.
Doughbot brings crazy-flavored vegan doughnuts (donuts?) to Sacramento! »
There’s a new dougnut (donut?) shop in Sacramento. It’s called Doughbot and they have many vegan varieties! Woohoo! They specialize in crazy flavors that people lose their shit for. Like, you know how regular ice cream tastes delicious and everyone is like, “Ice cream, woo!” and then Humphrey Slocombe and Bi-Rite Creamery opened up and started putting shit like old batteries and blood pudding in ice cream and everyone was all, “ICE CREAM GIVE IT TO ME I WILL WAIT IN LINE FOR SEVEN DAYS FOR A SCOOP OF VANILLA ICE CREAM WITH CORN FLAKES AND HOBO URINE IT’S SO PRECIOUS AND UNIQUE.”
Remember that!? Doughbot is bringing the nutso flavors and lucky for us vegans, we can eat lots of them. Since I’m a spoiled American who is tired of stupid old vanilla and chocolate and must have all sorts of shit stuffed into everything I eat, I’ll probably indulge in the bood orange glazed and Mounds of Joy varieties because they sound fucking delicioso. Anyone been? Can you confirm or deny?
Other than that, check out their super cute splash page and logo:
1) WTF IS THE GREAT SEATTLE VEGAN CHILI COOK-OFF AND WHY CAN’T I EAT IT??
2) This reminds me of Go Nuts for Donuts Day! Remember that? That day was THE BEST!
Little Bird Coffeehouse in the Tenderloin! »
VEGAN BREAKFAST ALERT! One of the hardest things for vegans in this city to find is a suitable breakfast or brunch option. Well, there’s a new sheriff in town and they put a motherfucking bird on it! Little Bird Coffeehouse is a fairly new place in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood that serves up all kinds of vegan breakfast and brunch options, including damn good gluten-free blue corn waffles (covered in fresh fruit, maple syrup, and Earth Balance!), damn good vegan breakfast sandwiches (made with Soyrizo, tofu scramble, vegan cheese and magic), and lots of other damn good vegan stuff like donuts and muffins and other fantastic shiz. Also, various types of non-dairy milk for your coffee and tea beverages! It’s no-frills, with a counter for ordering and some rickety tables and chairs to enjoy your goodies. This place is a little interesting because it’s like stepping through a tear in the fabric of the universe and ending up in the Mission. When I’ve eaten there, its been infested with miner bros* ordering espresso and reading David Foster Wallace. Not a bad scene, just FYI.
I’d bring your friends, wife, LOVAS, kids. And I’d hide your parents unless they’re OK with no table service and enjoy listening to Ani Difranco whine about the 1990s. It’s really nice to have some more options in this area of town and I’d like to see them be the little bird that could so get on down there and eat some some breakfast panini.

Little Bird Coffeehouse is at 835 Geary St. (at Larkin), (415) 440-2165, open every day from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CASH-ONLY, Y’ALL.
*TM Kate Losse. It refers to a specific type of dude who wears plaid shirts and scruffy beards, à la gold miners. I will demonstrate:

Guest post: Krispy Kreme ain’t Dun-Well! Vegan Doughnuts NYC: the launch party »
I heard it said… “vegan royalty”! This is what two cute guys and hundreds of vegan doughnuts attract.
Last night was the tremendous Well-Dun Doughnuts launch in NYC, hosted by Moo Shoes. And dang! It was packed, but expectedly civil considering the beautiful and awesome veg-loving crowd. As a line snaked around the shop, I got an opportunity to quiz some of the early arrivers on their samplings. It seems the lemon poppy seed was a winner—I never got one—and the root beer was a crowd-pleaser. It was like a glorious beignet made of root beer and LOVE that exploded in your mouth! People were moved to tears, at least I hoped, over the chocolate-covered and peanut butter varieties. Meanwhile, smooth and superb cocktails from Bushwick’s vegan bar, Pine Box Rock Shop, helped calm the impatient. And Lula’s Sweet Apothecary supplied some ice cream to à la mode your do-nut.
This review and the photos herein were brought to us by the talented and terrific Jeff Nesmith, an Alabama native thriving in Brooklyn. Designer, draw-er, writer, magazine producer, vegan fry-cook/biscuit-baker, and by day, the editorial production director for Real Simple magazine. He describes his site, welloiledmachinenyc.com, as always a work in progress; we think it’s ridiculously awesome. Oh, also, you might remember him from when I awkwardly proposed that he adopt Vegansaurus? When stalkers and victims become friends: The Vegansaurus Story!
