Rainbow donuts, why you so fresh?? I’m so gay for these gay donuts! And then they had to go and PUT SPRINKLES ON THEM? Mitt Romney is rolling over in his grave. (I WISH) (JK, I DON’T WANT MITT ROMNEY TO DIE) (I JUST WANT HIM NOT TO EXIST)
It’s Saffron Donuts with Rose Water Glaze from Spabettie! She’s a fucking genius. I’m mainly posting these so I can get them up on our Time to Make the (Vegan) Donuts boart on Pinterest, which you should all be following because it might be the most delicious thing on the internet. And Ryan Gosling is on the internet. CHEW ON THAT.
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.
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:

Reader challenge: help vegan donuts take over the map! »
Yesterday Google finally let us, the Americans, have a tool that people in 183 other countries have been rocking for like three years. It’s called Map Maker and it lets users edit the Google map, all Wikipedia-style. In places like Romania, it’s the only reason there even is a Google map.
You may have heard of it because everyone and their mom and even the Wall Street Journal was like “Ooh, Google blinked, let’s reproduce their press release/blog post on our news site because Google is our overlord.” We’re better than that here—or really just don’t have the time and don’t want to bother—so if you’re into full details, check out this other story someone already wrote. But if you just want to know what’s in it for you, buckle up. It’s time to make some vegan magic with this power the Goog just handed us.
The Map Maker tool lets you add things to the map that weren’t there before. But more important for our purposes (getting fat on vegan food) it lets you add details to listings. Details like “Category: Vegan Restaurant.” Details like “Description: Vegan Donuts.”*
Pay attention to that last one, because KNOWLEDGE is POWER people, and you can’t eat lots of vegan donuts if you don’t know where to buy them. Yeah, that information might exist somewhere else on the interwebs, but until Google has it in its proprietary map of the world it’s not really the truth, is it?
Vegansaurus pals, I hereby issue you this challenge: Let’s map all places to buy vegan donuts. In the whole country! By next week!
While you’re at it you might as well take the time to make sure your other favorite establishments are accurately represented, and the bike route you ride every day, and the spot in the park that’s the best one for a picnic, etc etc. Why are you so greedy, keeping all that info in your head? Time to share, people!
Map the donuts you know. Make your friends and relatives and enemies map the donuts they know. Together we can make sure no vegan donuts shrivel unmapped in their display cases.
Why are you still reading this? GO!
*It’s possible your changes will get all bored in waiting-for-approval purgatory, so just don’t be too impatient, OK?
I end todays go nut for donuts by just asking you to look at the google image results for “vegan donuts”. Seriously, we’ve come a long way, baby.
