Voodoo donuts aren't just for late night anymore since they've opened this roomy NE outpost of the popular downtown shop. You can't go worng with the maple bacon.
All the off-the-wall donuts you’ve come to know and love/like/scorn, but with an abbreviated wait (usually). Plus, there’s something inherently fun about buying your maple bacon bars & Mango Tangos in a bright pink building filled with pinball machines and Kenny Rogers portraiture.
Must visit for a sweet, quirky breakfast. The voodoo signature doughnut and the maple bacon doughnut are delicious. The "Too" location is not as crazy packed as I've heard the main location is.
If someone has wronged you and you desire a voodoo doll doughnut to start your revenge, I'd suggest grabbing one at the NE Davis location. No long lines, plenty of places to sit and plot your wrath. Fabulous bathroom too.
Don't waste your time – My first and last visit to Voo Doo was this morning. My kids rave about it, and I thought it would be fun to take a dozen to a meeting I needed to be at in Vancouver at 8:00. I entered at 7:25, knowing I would need 15 minutes to get to my destination. Horrified at the "Cash Only" sign, I checked my wallet - and only had $10. The line was long enough that I couldn't see how much a dozen donuts cost - so I got out of line to look - only to lose my place. 15 minutes later, I left, upset that only 3 people had been helped in that time. The poor girl at the counter was doing her best - but there were a bunch of hippies moving quite slowly in the back, and one sitting on the curb in the parking lot taking a break. One man in a black shirt and black beard, who looked like he hadn't showered in a few days - let alone possibly serving food - moved so slowly, he must have had lead in his shoes. One other person (a woman) went back and forth from the kitchen. Nobody bothered to notice there was a line of people waiting to be helped. You obviously don't need my business, and believe me, you'll never get it. Send your people to customer service training.
We had heard great things about VooDoo Doughnuts so we decided to try the VooDoo Too. The whole experience was pretty bad. I think the girl at the counter serving the doughnuts was stoned. Seriously, I'm not trying to be mean or anything, she seriously looked and acted stoned, laughing for no reason and constantly scratching herself under her shirt and itching her hair, and she's serving the food! GROSS! And then, as we were leaving some of the employees (which at first we thought were homeless people, that's how they looked) were running around outside. This was practically the middle of the night. When we got home we tried 2 of the doughnuts, the butterfinger one and the rice krispy one and they tasted pretty bad, I still have a bad taste in my mouth from them and it's been like 10 minutes. We couldn't finish them that's how bad they were. You couldn't pay me to go back there. BEWARE.
Nothing but Hype! – I have heard good things, seen the national tv shows talk and rave about the place.
Went in today to try for the first time. Left kinda disappointed. First thing I noticed when we walked in........ the place was dirty. The employees looked as if they didn't know what a bath was. Filthy looking scruffy employees will make one question how high an emphasis of cleanliness is taken here.
It seems to go hand in hand that people who don't have enough pride in themselves usually don't have any pride in other parts of their life.
As soon as we walked in we were pressured to get out faster than we walked in. HEY< WE ARE VOODOO DOUGHNUTS so kiss our dirty butts, give us your money and get out of here!
I have now had some of the infamous VOODOO Doughnuts and guess what? They are just doughnuts like anywhere else. I guess it's the dirt and grime of the place that has an appeal. How did these guys ever get on national TV? HYPE!!!!
I will not return to DOODOO Doughnuts again.
